I would like to know if WLOS is ever going to build their digital translator for Upstate SC. There were plans I believe for possibly Paris Mtn. but seem to be postponed.

Although to get WTVD RF11, you may need a VHF and UHF combo antenna, such as Winegard 7694. Or Clearstream 2V sold at Walmart.

I will probably stick with Jimmy Swaggart on 55.3. And sometimes watch WGGS-16, which also has new Jim Bakker show. Plus I can't get that 28 channel anyway.
