Also on Rabbitears.info MPB has a notice of termination of analog signal so MPB is transitioning on Feb 17th on all its TV outlets.
All three of Greenwood/Greenville's full power licensed
stations have filed termination notices....
I didn't mention WXVT until I saw the notice of termination. I checked those late last night and early this morning.
Barring any FCC intervention, there won't be any analog signals in that area save for translator K42CY channel 42 Greenville , a TBN owned relayer and a couple of Grenada LPTVs/translators.
KTVE 10 El Dorado AR is also terminating analog. The closest major network stations that will remain analog post 2/17 near Greenwood/Greenville are in Jackson (ie, WLBT ch 3) and Memphis (WREG 3, WHBQ 13).
The only full strength Little Rock broadcaster remaining in analog mode will be KTHV 11 (CBS), and KATV 7 on its low power signal---both transmit from Shinall Mtn in west Little Rock. KARK 4, KLRT 16, and KASN 38 will go silent next week.
WABG-DT and WMAO-DT already are at full power, WXVT will flash cut on ch 15, from their "QRP rig" on ch17.
WABG-DT is blocked out here because of KARK-DT also on RF 32. WMAO-DT until yesterday was blocked out by analog KVTN 25 Pine Bluff. Eastern parts of my county (the flat Delta-farming area) will be able to receive all three G/G DTV's, its DX here due to hills and a ridge running from Star City to Monticello AR.
