It's because WFSB at RF 33 has been at a reduced power in prep for their move...which unfortunately is also to RF 36, so don't get used to it. You should be able to get their digital replacement translator on RF 22 from WLNY's tower, although I'm not sure if it's currently on the air since it has a pending application to slightly reduce their power to avoid interference with WDVB-CD's post-repack signal.
Wonderful. I just love the fact that the Connecticut cbs messes up ny cbs because it’s on the same frequency

What is going on at WCBS (Channel 2.1)? They have been telling us on their broadcast that we have to rescan on August 1 because they are switching frequencies. So I woke up this morning and Channel 2.1 still works works with no rescan. What's going on?

I just went to their (CBS) website and they say nothing about it. Only concern they show is their issue with Direct TV. They don't really care about OTA.


Is there anywhere we can see the repack schedule for the NYC area stations? TRIP'S website shows maps and what the repack channel changes are but there does not seem to be a list of the stations with their dates for the change. It would seem a simple list is all we need.

WNYW is testing on channel 27. The channel 44 signal remains operational.

They switch at 1PM, like everyone else.

So it looks like the Connecticut interference which used to cut my signal quality to 65% on 33 now has cut it to 0 on 36. Wonderful

I was never able to pull them in but according to their new coverage map I should be able to get them. Since I can't pick them up my guess is that they have not moved yet.
I can confirm the following moves:
WCBS
WNBC
WNYW
WPXN
WLIW

I'm also getting an Azteca station on RF29.

Whats up with FOX 5 WNYW ? I scanned for channels at 1:20pm Channels 2, 4, and 31 were as strong as ever in Roxbury NJ ( 36 air miles from 1WTC)

Prior to FOX moving to their temp location in West Orange a few weeks ago FOX was always 8 out of 10 bars depending on propagation on my Samsung


Anyone else experiencing similar results ?

The CT interference is only part of it, the big problem is that the 1WTC UHF stations are at reduced power becuase of that mess caused by the Durst orginization preventing them from completing their final facilities in time.

So does anyone know how reduced the power is for CBS?

I should cross my fingers that full power mode might restore CBS for me?

Ok, so did my amp take a crap? I know things were changing today, but a rescan, and I have no signal on everything.

I did a rescan around 1:10 PM and got everything I usually do EXCEPT Channel 5! Did they screw things up by switching early? Where did 5.1 go?

It's WNYN who has been operating on a STA for RF 29 ever since they got displaced from 39.

That actually makes sense, though I would have thought ansky212 was on the back side of that antenna and would have very little chance of seeing it. Huh.

EDIT: And I would have expected it to be gone to make way for WLNY.

It's strange.

Just checked, RF29 displays as 39.1, AZTA (Azteca America).

Signal Strength as high as I get on other channels, and S/N - 100%.

Blank screen, no audio, no video.

Thought this station was to have moved.

In central NJ the signal strength went down on WCBS, WNBC, WNYW, WXPN, WNJU following the frequency changes. On the following the signal strength went up - WLIW (new channel off of WTC), WXTV, WFUT. Hopefully the signal strength gets better WCBS, WNBC, WNYW, WXPN. In my location the signal strength has decreased by about 30 to 40% on these channels.

About WNYN, it has been operating since at least a couple of months.
In fact, I was expecting that WTXX leaves the WEDW spectrum because WNYN is supposedly the Azteca station for NYC, while TXX is the one for CT.
But now it has been showing a black screen since the end of last week.
In theory, it should be moving to RF 30, but that hasn't happened. I am in their coverage area, and I have no chance to ever catching WLNY.

Funny. WXTV comes from ESB, and I think in the first hour after the transition there was some slight pixelation. Weird for me since it is the strongest signals around. At least my mom won't be complaining about her tv when she is back, hahaha...
