They are good in Wilson, about 75% on the meter. 107.9 is also at reduced power on an aux antenna at 1,100 ft. It looks like it will be a while before everything is finished on that tower.

I've got nothing now. Is it off air? I am getting WBOC on 32. I did have WITN on 34 earlier at 85% when I first found it earlier this morning.

No problems getting WITN since rescanning. Looks good.

Watching HD ENC Stations!

Getting WITN fine here in Washington, but have completely lost WEPX. Anybody else having trouble with the ION stations? Also getting WUNK(UNC-TV), but at a much lower signal strength (25% compared to 90%+) than before the switch.

On the plus side, now receiving WSKY out of Camden County.

Any idea why I am seeing WYDO on physical channel 19? I thought they received a waiver to move in Phase 7 with co-sited WUNM-TV. They are causing interference to our signal at a cable head-end in Danville VA.

Here in Winterville, I've lost the ION channels also as everyone else mentioned. I've also received WTKR, WAVY, and WSKY and the Columbia PBS this morning. They're all gone now. No problems with WITN or WYDO. I've lost WLFL and WRDC from RDU. I've seen WNCN though it's gone now. WRAL and WRAZ are coming and going. WTVD is now my strongest signal from RDU. What a mess!

Do you get WRPX on 47? They moved to the WRDU tower in Bailey this morning and to channel 32.

Decided to check this thread after I realized I had lost WITN (wanted to catch the noon weather).
I did the rescan & regained WITN, I went to delete the channels I normally delete from my list & then realized ION was gone among others.
Any word on if were going to get ION back?

My normal 2s,7s,9s,12s,14s,19s,25s,38s, Often 5s,22s,50s
Occasionally/Rare 3s,4s,10s,11s,13s,17s,21s,26s,28s,30s,35s,36s,49s
Outside antenna that looks like the RCA-ANT3037XR but not as nicely designed.

Actually, I am getting WRPX now. I've only ever gotten it before in the evenings when conditions were just right.

WITN is a little weaker for me than it was before. I can't have my antenna pointing at Wilmington and pick it up like I did before the channel change. I am not combined with 2 UHF antennas anymore. I just have the Winegard and the VHF. Now I remember why I had it the other way, since my Sharp TV will not scan in every channel, only the ones it's pointed at, and then you must rescan when you turn the antenna to pick up the channels in the opposite direction... I might junk this TV at a pawn shop, and get another one.

I've lost both the ION channels 35 and 38, but have gained WRPX 47 on 32 and I have a much better signal than I had with 35 and 38. I have lost the TUTT channels on 21. I have also lost WILM,but was expecting that since 50 is now 15. I also have ION on 62.1 and am getting WAVY 10 and a 33 from Virginia. Have much better signal for 50

WRPX will be interfered with when WTMQ decides to turn on their channel 32. Looks like that might be another problem. I get ION 35 (16) but rather weak. I still don't have 38. I get WTMX 21 at 70% now.



WYDO is coming in 95% for me. 9 and 12 100%

WEPX and WTMY are live on Spectrum Cable, WTMY is pix-elated though. I could never get WTMQ, so I hopefully it doesn't interfere with 47. I wish one of the local papers would dig into and write a article on all the changes and problems.I know a lot of people are experiencing problems because they are calling me

With night time atmospherics, finally pulling in a very-very weak WEPX. WSKY proved a fleeting success; signal gone by noon. Still having trouble with WUNK and WYDO, but WITN continues to come in loud and clear.

Checking through older posts on the forum, apparently a majority of the locals employed ad hoc arrangments--temporary antennas, lower power, etc.--to meet the repack deadline. In fact, does anybody know if any of the stations had their permanent solutions in place in time? Based on today's experience, I have my doubts.

In all fairness, it's only partly their problem. The FCC started planning the analog-digital transition in the mid-90s. The whole repack process, by comparison, seems ill-conceived and slap-dashed. 5G better be worth it.

I broke down my antenna setup last night and put everything back together. I managed to get back WRAL and WRAZ along with WTVD from RDU. I also captured WLFL, but it's unwatchable. I think they're at a really low reduced power; same as WRDC and WNCN which I can't pick up anymore. Here in the east, I managed to pick up WEPX again, though it is barely there. The rest of the channels in G,NB,W market are all good for me.

I don't understand what is happening... I can get channels like WVBT easily, but I can't get WEPX, or WUNK. I can just barely get WITN. ( I have the highest gain UHF antenna) I checked social sites, and many in Onslow and Carteret cannot get the same channels... I've never seen many of these northern channels before that I have seen since WITN shut off their top mount antenna. I can tell WEPX is online, it just won't lock onto the TV's



You would THINK that if this is tropho, that it would also help with weak locals. That isn't the case.

Am seeing an improvement in WITN. I get 90% now, and can even get it in the rear of the antenna. Still cannot get WEPX. They are running at a whopping 11,000 watts.



WNCT FM sounds like it is broadcast in monotone to me, since Retspin mentioned them. The signal is good, but maybe because they are not passing stereo?
