Based on the channel repackaging, WHNW-LD will be knocked off the air. It had been rumored that LeSea Broadcasting would shut off this LPTV station, due to low viewership. This repackaging will...

While ALL OF Milwaukee's major networks are UHF, WMVS is VHF. They have a UHF translator, but the terrain (based on a general TV Fool) would make the translator difficult to pick up. Unless the OP...

Can you wait until mid April? By that time the FCC will have published what's happening to all the stations and you'll know for sure if you need low VHF.[/QUOTE]

Looking at the report, the OP never mentions anything about WZZM, the other ABC affiliate in the Grand Rapids market (WOTV & WZZM have different programming outside of network programming). Unless...

I never recommend any DB8 antennas (or DB4, or DB2) for VHF. I tried out my Winegard HD-1080 antenna on VHF, & while it worked ok for WLS-TV when they were on RF 7, it did not work at all on RF 12. ...

I have to disagree with you that a deep fringe antenna isn't needed. Momence Illinois (according to the OP's TV Fool) is listing the stations at around 50 miles, & not 40. Pulling up the Longly...

To the OP, have you tried to see if you can get WBBM-TV on RF 26 from your area? Looking at the zipcode provided (Darien, IL), it shows that there is coverage of RF 26 in your area, & much stronger...

I expected Weigel to carry Decades in Milwaukee, since CBS owns no stations there. Since that's replacing This TV, did WITI finally pick it up?

It's also going on ABC O&O stations too, on the .3 channels of the ABC O&O stations. Unfortunately for me, Livewell Network isn't going anywhere. ABC has decided to keep the network running, but by...

I wonder if they're carrying Cozi-TV in 16:9, or 4:3. The network itself is 16:9, as all NBC O&O stations (including some Telemundo stations owned by NBC) carry Cozi in 16:9.

Going with a VHF-Hi/UHF only antenna for the Philadelphia market won't work for getting WPVI (ABC), as it's on RF 6. So unless the OP can live without ABC, then the OP must go with an all channel...

I'm starting to wonder if Winegard doesn't care as much about outdoor antennas anymore, that they'd give you a lame answer about the HD7694 being too powerful. The HD7694 is the minimum you need for...
