They do come in 24/7 except for the tower work which seems to end around 5 or 6 pm and then they're back on the air. The last two or three days WBQC was off the air due to a transmission problem but tonight they are on the air again.

Lucky for us Columbus stations seem to be blocked by a hill to the east but I know what you mean about tropo. That stuff has no respect for hills, but I love it when it happens anyway.

I also posted this on the Dayton forum. I noticed today that WHIO is down. According to their FB page there's been issues since 11/5. Wake me up when all the Dayton stations are working again lol.

At one time, I was receiving ALL of the Dayton full power stations with a rabbit ears in Mt. Airy.
I lost WPTD over the summer and the rest since repack.
I now get exactly NONE of the Dayton stations.

I hope they get things sorted out.

Ah, the good old days when Transmitter Supervisor was an important job.

It really is acting weird, Bob. I am 20 miles North of Dayton. My Cincy channels are actually coming in better now. 5,9,19 great, 12 not so much. 30ft tower antenna

I saw on Facebook where Elliott Block of Ch 25 and 20 passed away. Not sure what day it happened but saw some posts about it. He had heart surgery a number of years
ago and seemed to be living life to the fullest. I had a double bypass Sept 2018 and he gave me a lot of encouragement. For those that might no know it he was into classic
automobiles and could often be seen at local car shows

Thanks for letting us know, he hasn't posted here in quite a while, but he was avsforum member as well ... They just posted a great pic of him at wkrp's fb at base of tower with transmission line ... We have been lucky in Cincinnati to have him and his stations around all these years, I can remember the first time seeing his channel 25 (W25AI callsign at the time If I remember right) on air in early 90's ....

RIP Elliot ...
