Probably need to invest in a better outdoor antenna. Waiting to see which way the wind is blowing on the incentive auction (as far as the need for low-VHF or will there be enough stations left to...

There was definitively some glitching on 55.4 on Sunday during Have Gun, Will Travel and the first part of Star Trek TOS. Nice that they are showing TOS uncut (though apparently digitally sped up...

The green tint on 19.2 isn't nearly as bad as the frequent blackouts/freezes/dropouts (also saw the same thing on 55.4 H&I yesterday) - definitely not reception as signal was 100% and other subs not...

WYTV was in this morning (a fairly rare catch here) along with Erie's 24 and 66. WEAO and WMFD are both wiped out (but nothing else decoding in their place).

Never seem to get the exotic stuff...

Agree on the religious channels. Won't much miss ION or 16/29 (who seem to have dropped 90% of their classic programming) either.

Also, as was pointed out over on the other board, unless the...

Certainly all the low-powers/Class As will be gone.

Don't really see WBNX going away, I understand they are a successful operation, but might channel-share or go to VHF.

Would hate to see WEAO...

Nope.

That leaves 23 usable (I don't consider low-VHF really usable) channels, and even fewer where there are land-mobile restrictions on 14-20.

Don't see how it is even possible in the large...

Being close to the lake, you may be getting interference from CFPL, a Canadian station on the same RF channel as WOIO.

Really? WEWS (with WKYC a close second) has the strongest signal by far where I live.

Agree about your other points. WOIO-MeTV still has rare automation problems but far less often since they...

Interesting. How are they going to fit all these stations below RF36 (or 30 or 26 or whatever)?

Most already have a ton of subs, so how's channel-sharing going to work? Even a couple on low-VHF...

Would have liked to get BUZZR also.

Oh well, these LP stations are probably not long for this world anyway after they decimate the UHF TV band.

Made some quick recordings of 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3 in WMC:

5.1 (showing an SD infomercial) averages well below 10 MB/sec, with peaks of around 13. Drops as low as 5-6. But since they are not showing...

Now if they could only fix their local commercial timing problems.

They clobbered the first minute or two of Hogan's Heroes, inserting a local ad break right after the ID at 10 PM.
