They are both on the air. Signal is a little weaker at my Johnstown, Pa. location. Not by much though.

Wpgh fox-53 Pittsburgh, Pa. will be changing frequencies this Friday 12/06/2019. They were running a crawl on bottom of the screen telling you to rescan friday. Did not say what time. I imagine Wpnt 22 (My Tv) will be changing also?

Anyone getting Wpgh 53 or Wpnt 22? They changed the frequencies. Suprisingly, no signal up here on Laurel Mt.

Wpgh 53 / Wpnt 22...Update. They are having technical problems. Do not think they are on the air at all. I will post as soon as I hear from them. This would explain why nobody is getting any sniff of a signal. Especially you folks close to the transmitters.

WPGH 53 and WPNT 22 are back and strong in Washington, PA.

Also WWLM 20 in Washington has added Decades on 20.6 a few weeks ago. This occurred a few weeks after WOSC added it.

Re-scanned my TVs as well as re-ran the HDHomeRun set up on my computers for WPGH's and WPNT's move. It looks like I am receiving 20 and 21 about as well as I received 42 and 43.
