Will the ATSC 3.0 transmit a 4K signal? And the same coverage area? And will I have to get yet another converter box or a new TV? I like the plasma TVs I have now.

That would be Clearstream 2V sold at Walmart. Or for more gain, Clearstream 4V at Best Buy. And possibly add Winegard LNA-100 inline amp if needed. But may not be necessary.

36.3 is apparently a new subchannel for WYFF-4. It is not WCNC, as the signal info says RF36 not RF22. They do not yet have video or mapping to 4.3. Don't know yet what programming it will be.

Well seem like they are preparing for new 4.3 subchannel. They just do not have PSIP info yet so it say 36.3. But not WCNC because real channel says 36 not 22 when I check Samsung signal meter.
