I visited here infrequently this year so bear with me if I missed anything.

A big shout out to Elliott for keeping channels WOTH 20-1 thru 20-8 on the air as long as he has. Now that they will be going away Sat. Dec. 23 my question is, will any of stations be retained among the WBQC/WKRP channel 25 group of stations. Personally I've watched Movies!, Decades and Heroes & Icons quite a bit when I watch TV.

Friends have verified that 19-1 is working fine for them. I'm not sure what changed but it's time for me to deep dive into antenna technology and figure this one out.
I've had trouble on and off with WXix for several months. Everything else in Cincy and Dayton no issues. Doesn't seem to be any pattern to it

Yes, I've had some reception issues with that along with Ch. 5. But 19 right now is pretty bad. Weak signal and it breaks up a lot. I may change antennas yet again in the Spring. Currently using a Channel Master 4221 4 Bay but that doesn't work as well as the Antennacraft antennas I've been using. Even the Televes works better here at my location. I think there is a technical problem that needs to addressed at their tower. Previously I was getting a fairly strong signal strength reading here. Now it is always weak.

I use an old style CM4228 8 bay with CM7777 amp I think it is. Shouldn't be the issues we're having with 19

That's a good antenna. I had one but it ultimately met its demise and had to be replaced.

I installed a new 4221 but it is not working as well as the Antennacraft U 4000 or Super G 1483 that I used previously here. Tried the MXU 59 for a while but the picture broke up more on channels despite the strong signal. Probably signal overload.

Will try to get this figured out in the Spring. Will likely buy a Antennacraft U8000 which is a 8 bay and hope that will help resolve some of the issues I've had with reception here. Bad environment all around me for radio and TV signal reception or transmission. Pitfalls of living in a urban location.

As of this morning it appears that Ch. 19 is back at full strength, signal strength wise. Much stronger signal today and no real break up issues that I can see.

I'm mad as heck at WDTN right now because they are ruining the NFL divisional game because of this. Anything to get that mini-advertisement paid for I guess.

FYI, Quest TV will be airing on channel 20.3 when we get the new equipment in and installed. Decades will return to channel 20.2 at the same time.

Both Decades and Quest have returned on 20.2 and 20.3, respectively.

Repack Status and Low Power Station Movements

The web site rabbitears.info has an interesting page that lists the transition status of the stations affected by the repack. The Cincinnati market will repack from 9/7/2019 to 10/8/2019, so we have time to watch all the green check boxes appear.

What's also interesting is that rabbitears.info has another page that lists the channel transition requests for the low-power stations for the repack. WBQC-LD has requested to move to RF 28. WDYC-LD has requested to move to RF 14.

I reinstalled my Televes DAT790 Mix about ten feet further to the east at about 20 feet off the ground in my yard. Much better results with the new location and this antenna vs. the previous Channel Master 4221 on UHF. Getting Ch. 26 reliability from Dayton now and also a better signal on Ch's. 2, 7 and 22 from Dayton. Cincy stations also looking better as well as I am not seeing as much signal breakup now. I think the new LG UHDTV 4k that I just bought has a better tuner than the nearly 10 year old Samsung and that in combination with this antenna is really working well here.

Hopefully Ch. 25 application will be approved and can move to Ch. 28. While I don't watch much TV these days, when I do watch something other than Hockey, College Football, Tennis, Figure Skating or Golf, I am mostly watching something on Elliot's station. Watch ME TV once in a while too.

A rescan of the dial will result in Ch. 26 from Dayton now being piggybacked on Ch. 2 from Dayton.

It appears that WXIX has added Ion (in 4:3) on 19.4.

WBQC Moved to RF 20, Will Move to RF 28 for Repack.

From WVXU.com: Low-Power Channel 25 Will Remain On The Air After Channel Realignment.

WBQC has moved from RF 47 to RF 20 for the time being. They will move to RF 28 during the repack in the fall of 2019.

Looks like WLWT TV 5 is off the air with their OTA signal. Was hoping to watch the French Open Tennis today and can't. What a pisser.

So is WCET 48. I wonder if they’re having an issue at their transmitter site since both WLWT and WCET are co-located?

Good question. Would likely be the case. 5 is back on the air now. They were gone for several hours.

Well the WKRP stations are dark again.


This from the WKRP Facebook page:

Our transmitter died.
We hoped it would get us to October when all of the Cincinnati stations are moving frequencies. Our plan was to move to our new frequency with a new transmitter. Well, it looks like plans have changed.
We have people working on a solution to get us back on the air as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Elliot must have worked his magic. Further correspondence from Facebook:


Quote:
WE’RE BACK!
A special shoutout to the manufacturer of our new transmitter Anywave Communications and their staff. Their sales rep and technician stopped everything they were doing on a Saturday night to work at our transmitter site and get us back on the air for our viewers. We couldn’t ask for a better television partner moving forward.
What was done was a temporary fix. In the near future we will have to go off the air for a better part of a day for a more permanent solution. Until then, we hope you continue to enjoy what we’re providing.
Thank you all for your patience.
