Well, WGHP-DT is farther south than the rest of them and is only broadcasting at about 4.2 kW if my memory is correct. You might be able to get them (heck, I get WFXR-DT, 79 miles from me, even though they're at 2.97 kW), but I wouldn't bet on it.
You might want to post in the Greensboro thread about it. Foxeng checks that much more than this one I should think.
Actually our tower is about 5 miles south of WFMY TV/DT and WXLV-DT (their analog is on Sauratown Mt north of Winston-Salem) by Randleman.
Trip is correct, our power is only at 4.2 kW at 900 ft. It is fairly directional to due north, but we don't get a signal to Reidsville currently. Our signal stops juts past Greensboro in that direction. We are on Time-Warner Cable, but since Danville is not in our DMA, we are not on that cable system as a primary signal (they wouldn't be able to pick us up anyway). Depending on your antenna, you would have a better shot at WRAZ-DT 49 out of Raleigh.
We have had plans for many years to increase power, but since FOX owns us, we have to wait for them to allow us to do that and so far, that word hasn't come down. If they let us start right now, it wouldn't be until this time next year at the earliest that we would be at full power. We will have to build a whole new transmitter facility and tower to accommodate full power DTV and that usually takes 12 to 18 months.
Your best bet for the short term might be to see if you can get a waiver to the national FOX HD feed on DirecTV.
And WGHP is ready with the splicer and it looks great!
