WCCB had planned a translator for Crowder's Mtn. like WSOC. But for some reason those plans have never materialized. I wish they could reconsider. But perhaps they decided that RF26 could be subject...

Do you also get WSPA channel 7 and 13-WLOS? I guess you must be west of Charlotte somewhere. And you may be able to get This on WHKY from Hickory.

55.2 is still dark tonight, so maybe they are dropping ThisTV. But I still see it on 4.2, although I don't watch it that much. Except when they show the Pink Panther movies.
