I don't think anyone's signal is any stronger. There have been changes, though. Good and not so good.
WPBN is still on 50 in TC with no power change and they have added 7 in Harrietta, but at only 500 Watts.
WWTV is on 9 instead of 40. You'll need a VHF antenna and a lot of luck to get them. They're having problems reaching out as far as they had hoped.
WCMV is on 17 with no changes. Analog for them went away in March.
WGTU went from 31 to 29 and some reported a better signal, while others said it was worse for them.
WFQX on 47 hasn't changed, but it is going away. 45 is now up in Vanderbilt and has FOX and CBS. 32 will be up in Cadillac soon and will broadcast FOX.
