Yes, WPBF-DT, ABC (16-1, with no remapping to 25-1 yet) is on the air and passing ABC-HD programming at 720p. Everything else gets upconverted to 720p and stretched (ugh).
WFLX-DT, Fox, (29-1) passes Fox 480p widescreen, upconverted to 1080i. Everything else gets upconverted to 1080i and stretched (ugh, again).
WHDT-DT, Deutsche Welle (59-1) is reportedly operating at low power from a transmitter in Port Salerno at 720p.
WPTV should be commencing construction of a new tower about now.
WPEC is awaiting tower modifications. I have no timetable for completion.
Without repositioning my basic RS antenna from its aim at the Miami towers, I am receiving WFLX-DT (29-1) with a signal in the 70s and 80s. Not bad from 80 miles away.
My problem is with WPBF-DT (16-1), which, although it appears on my local channel list and guide, provides zero signal and, of course, no video or audio. Is the tower far removed from that of WFLX-DT? Are they on low power? Is there another reason for my lack of reception? (15-1, whatever that is, also shows nothing.)
