I get RF 20 WUNF...before April 15 or 16 I would always get a solid 5/5 signal with no changes prior...
then I lost the signal entirely on April 16, when it came back during the evening the signal was now only about a 3-4/5 and the signal would vary quite a bit with lots of drop outs and this hasn't changed since then. Pretty strange. All my other channels are still as they were prior to April 16 in signal strength so I doubt it is a TV tuner problem. Seems like UNC changed something on their end. I'm in northwest Anderson county near the GA border.

So given where you are like me you're in their null. For me moving my antenna just a couple of inches up or down make a huge difference. But I think that because I'm pretty high up in the mountains. I don't know if it would help you or not.

Just because I'm curious. Can you get Georgia Pubic TV on their Hartwell/Royston translator on channel 11?
I'm not a big fan of GPTV I think UNC TV does a much better job than Georgia or SC.

I'm down near Lake Hartwell so I doubt moving my antenna will help much.

No I can't get GPB I'm in Anderson County SC.

QVC2 is now correctly labeled as 28-6. It started airing around mid-month labeled 3-6.

We are now in repack Phase 10 from May to July. Anybody know if WSPA/WYCW still on target to move from RF7 to RF11 or will there be delay due to coronavirus? So far no delays indicated so perhaps they will be on schedule. Also SCETV supposed to move WNTV from RF9 to RF8 if they remain on schedule. I can get both WSPA and WNTV with a UHF antenna, but I do use rabbit ears to pull in RF13-WLOS. Hopefully no antenna changes will be necessary.

On a related note, is there going to be a range drop off in WSPA going from 7 to 11?

The latest progress report they filed at the end of April says they don't expect to finish their final facility on time because of Covid-19 related shipment and crew delays, and that Coast to Coast, their hired tower crew, has ceased work due to travel restrictions:

No, it's coming with an increase to 2212' and 33.5 kW, which will give them a 77.7 mile contour on RF 11, compared to their current 75.9 mile contour on RF 7 from 2188' at 25.7 kW

That's what I was wondering if a FCC report indicated a delay. As apparently many tower projects have been delayed due to coronavirus. But good news whenever all is said and done the coverage area may be slightly increasing.

^On a somewhat related note: I noticed that WMYA has been given until 9/9/2020 to complete their power increase to 750 kw. They are currently operating at 150 kw. I'm hoping the increase will improve their signal into Oconee county.

While I'm not getting SCETV from Columbia, I am getting a great signal from their Greenwood station.

WUNF is holding strong here @ 32dB, amazing, being so far away from the tower. WHNS is still my strongest GSP local, solid 33dB

Despite delay, UNC-TV has done good job with their repack signals. I get full strength signal from both WUNE Linvillle and WUNF Asheville at my location in Spartanburg County.

I forget your location, but are you still getting good reception from CLT and GSP repack stations?

WLOS is missing... Still puzzled about that

WSPA is partially blocked by terrain, 20dB
I don't know how, but even on reduced power, I'm getting WMYA @ 16-17dB. Weak, but locked. Maybe the atmosphere is in a good mood.

WYFF 30dB
WBTV, WJZY, and WCNC would come in with a clothes hanger.

WSOC 30dB
WAXN 18-20dB, It's always been a pain
WUNG is the same, but I can get a lock , 18-20dB
WTVI - 22-25dB, bounces around, but locked
WUNE - 36dB, it's always blasted in
WHKY - 32dB
WNSC - Trees block me to the south, but I can get 20dB
WCCB - 30dB

I wonder when was he last time that WSPA had a game show not named Price is Right or Let's Make a Deal? I'm guessing Family Feud with Ray Combs or the 1990 version of Joker's Wild with Pat Finn(does daytime Wheel of Fortune count too?) I don't think they've had a game show at 4 since TJW.

From ETV's website this morning. 5/21/20

UPSTATE TOWER UPDATE: #SCETV 's Greenville tower sustained weather damage Wednesday evening, May 20. Fortunately, we've been able to temporarily repair the damage, so all of our television (WNTV-29 and WRET-49) and radio (WEPR 90.1 FM) signals should be restored. However, additional outages could occur in the days ahead as a more permanent solution is implemented.

I rescan and punch in RF15 and it come back channel 31. Perhaps technical problem from the storm since near SCETV damage on Paris Mtn. But SCETV should be working on move from RF9 to RF8 by July for repack unless they have delay. 29 and 49 now same signal since RF43 sign off for repack.

I get it fine on my TVs, but not on my Tablo (which uses the same antenna). There must have been some reduction in signal strength.

Will they be full power or temporary antenna? Don't see any more reports indicating a delay for WSPA. But apparently WNTV may be on a temporary antenna before they go to full power because they are rebuilding the tower. They have STA extension from the FCC, but not sure about the timeline. But it does seem July will be the changeover time for WSPA and SCETV.
