It's WSWF-LD 10, it's already airing RTV programming.

Reception hint: turn your antenna towards the Lovelace Gas Service tower in East Orlando on SR 50. Perfect reception in Lake Mary with an RS-VU190XR antenna.

Er, that's news to me. And I work for RTV.

If that is the case, and I can find no evidence to support it so far, looks like a C&D needs to go out...

This site has some screen shots including for WSWF but looks broken right now

http://www.silicondust.com/hdhomerun...lineup_6755167

Was a RTV or A1 logo seen on WSWF?

In other news WMFE deal is off, no news on what's to come. They are suppposed to be sending in the request to the FCC on Wednesday.

Actually watching WSWF-LP, It is not RTV, it appears to be a mix of A1 programming and public domain programs (probably sourced from a DVD bargain bin at Walmart) as an episode of the original Dragnet came on at 9:55 PM.

They are branded as WSWF Orlando "Classic TV" in a station ID graphic.

So...who is going to run the RTV service in Orlando?

I'm not allowed to say anything until the press release goes out, which should be tomorrow morning.

Anything yet??
post #3129 of 3340
I know it was submitted, but doesn't seem to have been published anywhere yet for some reason. I'm seeking permission to post the press release directly here, and will do so as soon as I have that permission.

Gotta be WMFE -24. Didn't their other plan fall through?

WMFE is non-commercial, so not them. But yes, the sale to Daystar was canceled. Here's hoping it can wind up in the hands of someone like WBCC.

RTV posted the information via their Facebook page on Tuesday with a launch date of April 1st.

Can you link their Facebook page?

I tried and it looked like a dead page.

LUKEN COMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCES WKMG AS NEW RTV AFFILIATE IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Chattanooga, Tenn. (March 26, 2012) - Luken Communications, LLC, a nationwide broadcast company offering free-to-air networks including Retro Television (RTV), is pleased to announce WKMG in Orlando, FL as its newest affiliate for RTV. WKMG is owned and operated by Post-Newsweek Stations, Inc., a division of the Washington Post Company. On April 1, WKMG will begin broadcasting RTV’s programming over-the-air on digital channel 6.2, Comcast channel 220, Bright House digital channel 1061 and Florida Cable channel 14.12.

“We are very excited to bring RTV to Central Florida. This channel is unique in that it will allow families to gather around the television and watch great family programming anytime of the day and night,” said Skip Valet, Vice President and General Manager for WKMG. “We are proud to introduce these classics to a whole new audience, and, for those who remember these shows, it will be exciting to enjoy them all over again.”

Matt Winn, Vice President of Luken Communications says, “We are delighted to work with WKMG Local 6 and Post-Newsweek Stations, Inc. to bring the best in classic television back to Orlando.” Winn adds, “WKMG is the perfect addition to our Luken family of over 300 affiliates nationwide and we could not be more pleased.”

RTV, launched in 2005, was one of the first digital broadcast networks. Today, RTV, a subsidiary of Luken Communications, LLC, is a sister network to My Family Television, TUFF TV, PBJ, The Nashville Network, My Car TV and Frost Great Outdoors. Luken Communications offers diverse, family friendly programming on its networks reaching approximately 80 percent of all U.S. households via a blend of over-the-air, cable and satellite television.

When I scanned to update my tuners from latv to rtv I notice WACX rf 40 vc 55 has added some more channels, 55.5 Brtv "Brazil is Here" (Portuguese) and 55.6.

BRTV promo loop says that it originates from Orlando and it will carry "filmes nacional" of Brasil, sports, (so far just fishing), programs about food, etc and they are scrolling a phone number across the bottom 1-407-745-1020 which resolves to
BRTV BROADCAST TELEVISION CORP.
SUITE #6
6979 KINGSPOINTE PARKWAY
ORLANDO, FL 32819

Now if somebody would also carry channels 24/7 like nhk world, BBC world, AJE, FR24 English I would be excited about all these sub channels additions on non network affiliates. WMFE should set up a lineup like MHZ world and carry a bunch of informative/news/international channels.

post #3140 of 3340
A) not the right forum

B) TVfool results please http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29

C) if you do indeed live in Orlando don't use an amp. Your signals are probably too strong

D)It would help if you used the actual channels or the call signs. I don't see the channels you are talking about. Channel 26 is CBS.

You're new no biggie. The mods will probably move it to the correct forum in a bit any ways.

Best way to know is to remove it. Won't know until you give me the TVfool info I asked for. If you live in Orlando then probably yes. Do you know the model number of your antenna?

We usually go by actual channels not virtual ones.

Done, but only because I saw it by accident. Feel free to use the Report Post button for stuff like this. Thanks.

cheito,

The results are expected on WTMO 31 which is low power and located elsewhere and WVEN RF 49 VC 26 whose tower is located in Deland, I am not sure what ch 32 you refer to? I would use the amp for the Spanish language stations.

you can't use an amp for some stations and not others. You'd have to use it for all or none. And the other stations will most likely be overloaded with an amp. Anyway once he posts his TVFool report we'll get a better picture of what he is dealing with.

That gain is meaningless. It's including the amp which is not how gain works. If you could give me the exact model number we can see if you can remove the amp.

No it doesn't help. I don't need the coordinates of the station tower and all that other stuff. A TVFool report will give me what I am looking for.

I'm asking you to go the link I posted. Enter your information. Copy the URL and post that URL here. Also are you actually pointing the antenna at station since it's not in the same direction as the other stations in Orlando?

And it seems you defiantly don't need an amplified antenna.
