Her bio now reads:

"April came to WITN as anchor of WITN News at 5:00 p.m. and co-anchor of WITN News at 5:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. After three years on the anchor desk, she decided to pursue her first love again... reporting.

April is now WITN's Jacksonville Newsroom Chief and reports on several southern counties in Eastern Carolina.'

Mysterious BOOMING has been going on lately across North Carolina. Tonight people are reporting it on facebook News12 after Skip commented he was looking into it. People well away from here, even into Virgina are hearing it. I hear it real good here, and it doesn't seem to be what I normally am used to hearing. Nobody knows what it is, and people below Wilmington have been hearing it for over a year and don't know exactly what it is... Good work News 12 for trying to find out!

They're called Seneca Guns. People in Wilmington and below have heard them a lot longer than a year.

It was determined that all the military bases in the area were doing exercises at the same time, and the cloud blanket made the sounds travel and louder than normal. Everything stopped at near 11 PM. People went nuts on facebook though. Alex Jones fans I think...eek.gif

That's right. Had to be military. I've heard the seneca guns at the beach before. I could hear it last night in Greenville.

Take Camp LeJeune, Cherry Point, Elizabeth City CGAS, Fort Bragg, New River MCAS, Pope AFB and Seymour Johnson AFB out of NC. What do you have?
Suffice to say it does not take a PHD in economics to assess the negative impact to NC if that happens.

I watched some WYDO over the weekend, and did not see the glitching nearly as bad as I did previously. I still saw one or two little skips, but hardly even affected the broadcast. Less than a second of interruption.

Over three months ago since you posted that and the absent and unresolved DD 5.1 problem politely stated remains. Furthermore it is very close to a year(too generous!) that we have been without DD 5.1. WOW, that manufacturer most have a HECK of a backload, backlog, UHM? Take your pick.
CHs 7 and 12 do NOT have their pictures cropped like CH NINE to show their weather related announcements. C'est la vie...
post #8981 of 9109
The way WNCT squeezes the entire picture for weather crawls is really annoying. It's distracting when trying to watch anything. It must be a corporate graphic set up though - WNCN/17 has the exact same setup using their own flavor of graphics.

WCTI's crawl is poorly formatted. The left side does not compensate for overscan.
post #8982 of 9109
I've never seen 9 squeeze their picture for the weather crawl... The closings are shrunk for me. People complain constantly about the alerts, but it is part of local broadcasting, and I hope we always have it localized and no one national feed for everyone. All counties need to be served as much as the main.

The technology seems to be advancing as far as looks, but as far as accurate forecasts, it seems to be staying the same or falling off. All I got was a lot of ice, and very little snow, nowhere near 12 inches, and certainly not 20 inches.

On 12, If I turn the overscan settings Off, all the banners work just right, but if you can't do that, it is cut off bad. Whoever set up the graphic, did not have their overscan turned on.

Why can't we see the weeknight basketball games in HD in this market? Everyone else gets them... If we cannot do this, then let other locals in on Dish, Direct and cable. Most do not have an antenna, and do not even get MY TV SD
post #8984 of 9109
I've been wondering if they are sticking games on 7.2 to force the hands of providers not carrying the channel.

It was better when 12/FoxENC had the contract. They at least carried it on one of the primarily channels.
post #8985 of 9109
Hopefully, those posting can get the game in HD on WRAL. The ACC Network needs to have rules regarding this and stop it from happening! Satellite is not going to add subchannels without the OTA module, so the ACC Network should forbid the games being on there.
post #8986 of 9109
Tonight, WECT 6-1 has a game in HD, but sometimes, it airs on WILM low power, and I cannot get that. I do not get WRAL consistently.
post #8987 of 9109
The ACC games are produced and syndicated by Raycom Media, and each local affiliated station selects which games they choose to carry. In some cases the ACC affiliate may decide not to preempt network programming, and the ACC game will appear on a different station. In Charlotte, Raycom's own flagship WBTV chose to air the CBS programming instead of the UNC game. But fortunately the game was moved to FOX owned MyTV12, channel 55.1 in HD. Rather than airing it in SD on their 3.2 Bounce channel. And other times the game will air on WJZY FOX-46 if WBTV does not carry it. In the Western Carolinas, the ACC games will air on Sinclair stations 13-WLOS or My40. Last night the Clemson game was on My40 in HD. So as they say, "check your local listings."

My only beef is it not being available in HD. HD has been going for nearly 15 years. At this point, local sports should take priority, and it used to in the days of analog, so why should it be shuffled off the main channels now, especially since over the border line and sub stations are not readily available on a dish or cable line-up, which is what the majority are into. Most people still think of an external aerial as ugly and beneath them.

That is certainly an understandable concern. But I guess seeing it in SD is better than not seeing it at all. But of course you would prefer it to be in HD.

The ACC Network basketball games that involve Duke, Carolina, State, major teams are ALWAYS on WRAL, they wouldn't move those games if the Super Bowl was on WRAL at the same time. (I realize that would never happen, but you get the point.) Other matchups that are on during the week are sometimes put on 5-2, which is stupid. WFMY usually does whatever WRAL does with games, but if they don't air the game on WFMY, they move it to My48 where it is in HD. Both stations SEVERELY over-complicate things by airing the displaced shows at 1:37AM, even thought they know the game will go over so they tell you to just record the entire overnight block. It would be easier to just schedule the shows for 2AM instead of 1:37 to allow time for them to "catch up" so to speak and it would be neat and orderly.

For ACC Network football, the games either air on WRAL or Fox50 (many times both channels carry ACC Network games), both in HD. Greensboro market is impossible to figure out, but Fox8 seems to have many football games, but you could see them on the Sinclair stations. Fox network football gets displaced to 8-2, too. Fox 8 knows what they're doing so those games are in widescreen SD and actually look good (for SD).
post #8992 of 9109
So I guess the Duke UNC game will be on WITN 7.2 in SD tonight? I know ESPN and EPSN3 will be blacked out, but will I be able to watch in on ACCnetwork.com? I don't know if I can pick up WRAL reliably here in Washington.
post #8993 of 9109
Check ESPN anyway. I don't think they black it out much like they used to...
post #8994 of 9109
ESPN and the online counterparts do NOT have any restrictions with the ACC Network and blackouts anymore, haven't for 2 years. The ESPN coverage and ACC Network are both shown, even in the home DMA of the game. But I would rather watch ACC Network in SD than deal with Dick Vitale's horrible coverage.
post #8995 of 9109
Cool, I didn't know that. I can't stand Dick Vitale either, but I'll put up with him to be able to watch it in HD.
post #8996 of 9109
Some people just use the radio for the commentators, and put the tv on mute. I don't mind Vitale, he is entertaining, unlike some of those dry people ESPN has brought in. I could go further, but I might get another bad note... from the mod police. smile.gif
post #8997 of 9109
I wish they'd delay the radio broadcasts so that it was easier to match the picture and sound for Vitale avoidance. WRAL is going to stop the Durham gridlock coverage for the game, so that's something.

This is what you need.

I wish they had cancelled sooner. A lot of people had to walk out of there in the conditions after they fought so hard to get there.
