What antenna are you using? All the stations you list have UHF digitals, while 9-1 is on VHF (channel 13). Maybe you should try some rabbit ears.

(VHF DX) For S.E. NM viewers; Live DTV test for Ch.8 & Ch.10 Dec. 3rd

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This may be of interest for off air viewers near Midland-Odessa area and looking to see VHF DTV performance at a distance, DX.

For viewers in S.E. NM. KOBR and KBIM, will be conducting a coordinated engineering test of both stations transmission and antenna systems.

Starting sometime after midnight Dec. 3rd and finishing before 6am Dec.3rd. This test will use both stations post DTV transition RF channels, 8 & 10. During the test both stations low power DTV transmitters will be shut down, ch.38 (8) & ch.41 (10). A test pattern or SD programming will be passed; HD equipment is not yet in place for this DTV test.

Both stations will be conducting reception reports from cable companies within the viewing area of their VHF DTV signals. We would appreciate any reports from off air viewers who would be up at this time. Please pass this on if you know of anyone interested. Any performance reports of digital VHF reception is of great interest.

Major bump. KOSA-TV is shuffling its subchannels around.

The CW & Telemundo is moving from KWES to KOSA.

From KOSA's website.

7.1 - CBS
7.2 - The CW (from KWES 9.2)
7.3 - Telemundo (SD) (from KWES 9.3)
7.4 - Ion

7.5 - Telemundo (HD)
7.6 - MyNet (from KOSA 7.2)
7.7 - H&I (from KOSA 7.3)

Not sure if 7.5-7.7 comes from KOSA's signal or KTLE's digital signal on RF channel 20.

KWAB's signal will also change

4.1 - The CW
4.2 - Telemundo
4.3 - H&I

Not sure what KWES will replace on 9.2 & 9.3.

I would think 7-5 thru 7-7 will come off the low powered station KTLE-LP

Here in Minneapolis, Minnesota we have 3 examples of stations merging their PSIP's together off 2 RF stations.
