You have UHF and VHF mixed up.

WESH is VHF and should be received by the AC Y5-7-13. All other stations are UHF and should be received by the UHF 8-bay.

You didn't mention how you have them combined, please do so.

Any new electrical or electronic items in or on your home of ANY type?

Which specific antenna did you disconnect?

Doh! Copy and paste error on my part providing antenna specifics. They're combined with this: http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=UVSJ

 

One change to electrical devices in the house - swapped the HTPC case and power supply from 150W to 450W.

 

I emailed WESH to ask if anything's changed on their end and they replied that nothing has changed.

Have you tried to get WESH on channel 18 from Orange City? It is a very good signal here in Titusville. I am 41 miles away.

Interestingly enough, shortly after hearing back from WESH and without making any further changes on my end (after re-orienting antenna, rebooting, etc. earlier in the day and still having problems), I'm now getting perfect reception again. So...no one changed anything but it's all working again. :rolleyes:

 

270degrees, Orange City is within range so maybe an option to look into if I run into problems with their VHF transmission again.

The WACX 55.5 Color bar now has this written on the color bar, This Sub-channel available for lease to a capable and qualified programmer Over the air, full Power 24/7 commercial broadcast sub-channel tower height 1749 ft amsl population coverage to 3 million in central Florida contact 407-263-4040 ext 202 with an annoying test noise. I wonder how much they charge, I emailed Retro and suggested they look into it.

This site has affiliates streaming, they have the COZI TV affiliate which we don't have yet

Retro doesn't lease space. They only do traditional affiliation agreements.

My thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread, especially "tylerSC" for your suggestion to purchase the Terk HDTVa antenna. I now have the antenna hooked up and I'm able to pull in WESH, all the other channels look much better than they did with my previous antenna, and I'm able to get many new channels.

I think the Terk HDTVa is one of the better indoor antennas, and will probably in most cases perform better than those flat Leaf style antennas. Especially with the rabbit ears for VHF which should help with WESH.

Last night I caught the WFTV translator on RF 20 and it maps to 9.1 and 9.2 the same as the main signal on RF 39.

The WESH translator on RF 18 uses 2.3 and 2.4 which does not confuse the virtual mapping.
