KGFE-DT went on the air last night (Thursday night) on Channel 15 (which was KNRR-DT's pre-transition channel), with the exact same line up as KCGE transmitting from the same tower (2.1 - PBS HD, 2.2 - PBS SD, 2.3 MN Channel, 2.4 PPTV4).
Now if only the Canadians can get their act together so the maximization application for KBRR-DT can be approved, so the solid signal can go beyond the physical shadow of the tower, and KNRR-DT12 can get a construction permit to build the facility.
DirectorFlik, have you heard anything about when you might be able to get a 720p signal to Euclid (KBRR's TX site), and have program guide info in the PSIP data? If you have no plans to do HD on channel 10, maybe you could put a RTN (http://www.myretrotv.com/shows.html
) subchannel on, so the bandwidth isn't going to waste (and as a side effect have more people drop their cable on go strictly OTA, since more choice would be available, thus increasing your likely viewership).
Also, does anyone know what is going on with KCPM-27? THey have no digital transition plans on file with the FCC, and are still broadcasting in analog this morning, but running scrolls saying that the digital conversion is taking place and contact KCPM with questions (so it's a locally generated scroll). Are they really converting today, are they going to continue with the analog signal (illegally, as they have no published authorization to continue analog operations), or shutting down (again)?
