Fox is back still no PBS. Don't get what's up with WESH, it's on the same tower as CW. I guess it's because it's Vhf, but I had no problem before.

I still didn't get FOX back yet. Two different tuners on different antennas.

My brother-in-law lives in Edgewater (20 miles S of Daytona Beach) and he said WESH and WOFL are both being received on his attic antenna.

No time table on WUCF looks like they are having issues

The signal is very weak for ch. 35 here to your south also, near Micco. It is usually too weak for solid reception since the repacking. 65 is rarely received at all. I emailed them about the weak signal here, to which they offered to help with my reception problem, but I declined as I can get them via YTTV. If more people would report the loss of a usable OTA signal maybe (hopefully) they will address it.

...or just ONE big advertiser. If that happens, and it's something that CAN be fixed, it WILL be fixed.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

If it can be fixed, indeed.
There are (were?) FCC rules on signal strength.
I recall a couple of times when we (in Micco on the lagoon) got a Jamaican station strong and West Palm badly.

Well I never heard back from them. I don't believe my coworker did either. I guess they don't care.

Yes- not good for OTA viewership. I miss the surround sound on football (YTTV is only stereo). Until next fall, I doubt that I'll watch them at all. I can't help but wonder if their lack of interest in OTA is due to it being 'free' as opposed to getting income from the cable/streaming outlet contracts. It would be nice to know if their antenna footprint is changed or they are saving $$ on electricity, but I suspect we never will. Thanks for your efforts.

WOFL and WRBW are temporarily on a reduced power directional signal until their new tower is finished. The current temporary directional antenna does not favor Palm Bay.

Just an FYI...

From the WUCF Facebook page:

ALERT: WUCF channels are currently OFF-AIR for many viewers. A fire overnight in the WUCF transmission line has forced us to lose our signal. Customers of Spectrum are still able to see WUCF channels due to a fiber connection. We will give you an ETA when we know more.
For updates visit: http://wucf.org/status

I really ought to act more like a woman of my advancing years, but I’m growing old disgracefully.
