I get that all the time at any time any Chan and it's subs just go out. It can be any Chan. Sometimes it is 3.1 thru 10.4.

Often any of the channels go out for awhile very late weekend nights/early morning. I have always assumed for maintenance.

Side note Channel 11 WFSU has been coming in more often than normal recently, see it most of the day today. It's surprising given how far away it is and it is coming of the back of the antenna. Conditions must be just right.

I almost forgot, WFLA has been down in signal for several days here but never enough to lose it. Really low today.

Yeah. I just got everything set up and dialed in (so I thought), including WFLA which is the hardest for me. Then WFLA went away (I can see the call sign and subchannels, but symbol quality is 0) the next day.

"For the time being, WFLA switched to its auxiliary antenna so that the main antenna can be replaced. Work is expected to be completed by June 7."

Thank you VERY MUCH! I was going to get up on my roof today and start messing with the antenna to see if it needed to be repointed or something.

I just noticed that sometime this spring, channel 10, WTSP, changed their logo again. They are now 10 Tampa Bay.

This was their prior logo:

This is the new logo:

I always though their old logo was weird, looking more like the word GO.

That new 10 logo looks like what big 13 used back around 1980. Good old WTVT had the best news back in the day with the big three, Leep, Smith and Hardy.

WFLA/WTTA is (are?) up on rf 7 and 9, this afternoon

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

I notice Chan 38.2 Cozi is breaking up much more the last 7 days. Not even on now at this time.

Finally mounted my Clearstream 2Max on the roof (Pinellas 33776). Antenna pointed E/SE toward the Riverview towers (aimed a touch south to catch WWSB).

About 100 ft. of RG6 Coax, to an RCA drop amplifier/splitter.

Results:

WEDU/WEDQ PBS 3 (VHF 13) Solid 90-95%

WFLA/WTTA NBC 8/IND 38 (VHF 7) Solid 79-83%

WTSP CBS 10 (VHF 10) Strong 100%

WTVT FOX 13 (VHF 12) Strong 100%

WPDS-LD Pinellas County Schools (UHF 14) Spotty, can lock occasionally. Off axis from where antenna is aimed.

WBKH-LD IND 17 (UHF 27) Weak, rare lock.

WCLF CTN 22(UHF 21) Pretty solid 75%

WXAX-CD Azteca 26 (UHF 26) Fair to good 50-55%

WFTS ABC 28 (UHF 17) Strong 100%

WTAM-LD Azteca 30 (UHF 35) Weak. Occasional lock.

WMOR IND 32 (UHF 18) Strong 100%

WSPF-CD Americateve 35 (UHF 36) Solid 70%

WWSB ABC 7 (UHF 24) Fair to good 52%

WTOG CW 44 (UHF 44) Strong 100%

WTBT-LD IND 45 (UHF 45) Weak, occasional lock

WRMD-CD Telemundo 49 (UHF 30) Fair to good 50%

WVEA Univision 50 (UHF 20) Strong 100%

WFTT Unimas 62 (UHF 25) Strong 100%

WXPX Ion 66 (UHF 29) Strong 100%

A couple I can clean up easily if I re-aim, but found this orientation to be a "happy medium". All the majors are solid (minus WRMD-CD Telemundo, which is still somewhat reliable).

I never got WWSB 7 before. I have deleted most of the chans on your list other than the main chans 3.1 thru 44.5. Mine all come in weaker as i am way up the coast on the gulf in Pasco.

Looks like WFLA is up on both VHF 7 and VHF 9 (as mentioned previously).

100% signal here in Pinellas, and now on par with the other big locals.

Should be a noticeable improvement for some.

I tried with an iView from the Citrus & Hernando Co. line 2 hours ago. It only reported 177MHz, but it came in well.

Were you sure rf 9 was up? Since they're just testing, it's not up all of the time. 9 is up as of 10:40, this morning.
