March 24 Rescan Date for 48

I just saw that 48 changed their announcement for the rescan date to now show March 24. Prior to this, they were saying that a date would be coming soon. You can still check your signal meter with RF 15 and see a high signal, but you can't scan the channel in.

RF48 is gone. Just RF15 now.

Both RF15 and RF48 were both running late last evening due to possible severe weather overnight.

Channel 29

Hi Guys, I've been homebrewing some antenna's in Decatur, and I just cannot get anything other than a black screen on 29 or any of it's subchannels. The website is dead, but the signal is still going out; is 29 dead or is it my antennas (don't think so, but want to verify).

Not sure

It's been a while since I aimed mine that direction to get that channel or 11 out of Athens. Last time I got 29, the picture quality was very low quality.

IF you are seeing *anything* on the screen other than NO SIGNAL, then there is a signal there. A black screen usually means nothing being fed to the broadcast equipment (encoder, mixer, etc.), so definitely would be a station issue.

I use Titan TV schedule which is pretty dependable. BUT, channel 38 listings on Titan are incorrect. 38.1/38.6 are still not broadcasting guide or information data. Has anyone found a source for the correct programming on 38 and all subs.?

Checking Networks

Other than Googling the networks for each channel (Court TV, Get TV, ABN, etc.) and looking them up through each network's website, that's all I know of to find out what's currently on at the moment. I noticed that 38.4 is now active with content, but it doesn't appear to be a network of any kind. There's no identification given except for the station call sign and channel number. I'm guessing they're airing their own content on that channel?

Gracenote/Zap2it shows 3ABN Latino on 38.4 W34EYD4, but it might be outdated if you're seeing something other than Spanish religious programming.

Old data

That's old data. 38.4 was just an empty channel for the longest. Just the other day they started putting something on there.
By browsing the channels themselves, here's what's on them:
38.1 - Court TV
38.2 - Informercials
38.3 - Get TV
38.4 - *Independent Programming* (appears to show mainly Westerns)
38.5 - ShopLC (similar to HSN/QVC)
38.6 - 3ABN (Three Angels Broadcasting Network) *Religious*

The only channels of interest to me are 38.1 and 38.3.
