According to FCC file, WJZY has filed extension request for continued reduced power until new replacement filter can be installed. Original March deadline delayed due to availability of parts and crew and delay due to coronavirus. Now expected for completion by extended September deadline for full power.

I don't see anyone complaining about WJZY's reception so it really is just a moot point right now.

No complaints here. Good strong signal but apparently they will be delayed until September for full authorized power.

I guess I'm the odd man out. I've had few dropouts here and there over the winter, but when the weather gets warmer, I start loosing 46 and 64 completely, along with some dropouts on 58. Even the wind can cause issues. I think it's a combination of things, including new development (clear cutting of trees). Since there's not much on TV during the summer, it's no big deal.



From what I've read, it sounds like ATSC 3.0 will help. Since Sinclair(?) now owns 46/55, maybe they'll be the first to try it out. Looking forward to a HDhomeRun ATSC 3.0 tuner.

It sounds like you have an isolated issue with your set up mentioning the different channels and they are all at different coordinates around the counties. I can get those stations with a paper clip in a tuner, so you really need to check your set up at home.

Nextstar who own WSPA 7 and WYCW 62 is who own WJZY and channel 55 WMYT now not Sinclair is who owns the Fox RSN networks

I live in a low area with hills around me and have multi-path issues. I have an old CM-4228 mounted in the attic, with a CM7777HD (pre-amp + LTE filter). Tried moving it out onto the chimney but then lost more channels... I found out that moving the antenna just a few inches makes a big difference, at least at my house.

Thanks for the correction.
Have you tried the amplifier on the lower gain setting? If you are in a strong signal area perhaps you may have dropouts due to overload issues. The CM-7777HD has both high and low gain settings. But if you have one of the other 7777 modes, they have a fixed gain of 26 or 30db which may be too high.

And LMcKin is correct that Nexstar now owns WJZY, along with WSPA Spartanburg and WGHP Greensboro. They are reportedly a strong early proponent of ATSC 3.0, so perhaps that may come sooner than later. Remains to be seen. However supposedly the Next Generation TV standard may deal better with multipath issues and error correction.

Thanks for the suggestion, I forgot how I had it. I turned on 46 and it scrambled a few times and then it settled down, but it's cool out today so I'm not surprised. I just checked and I have it on low gain, so I tried turning on it high to see what would happen and looses the station completely. I think I'm just in a bad area .

Are you actually in Charlotte..? Because there are no bad areas at all. You did mention hills so it sounds a little confusing to me.

Moved north of the border to Cabarrus county about 18 years ago.

My community lies in a small dip/valley. There's a community across the road where several people park at the bottom of the road when there is bad weather (ice or snow storm) because it is dangerous to get up/down the hill.

In any case, it causes multipath issues, but I found a sweet spot for summer and one for winter (have a rotor), until a few years ago. I assumed it was due to new communities going in around the area (tree clearing, etc). Then I read about LTE causing issues and replaced my old one with the 7777HD; the addition of LTE filter did help. I found a new sweet spot for winter, but if the temp goes above the 50s or wind blows hard, I have drop-outs. My old sweet spot for summer no longer works when it's been warming up and can't find another spot yet.

In Valdese, mine was unwatchable for several hours one morning last week. It was the prelude to a very warm day, so the atmosphere (that "ducting" stuff and not my HVAC) may have been the culprit. Still, I think my WJZY signal (ch 25) is already vulnerable to adjacent channel interference by the nearby WSOC translator on channel 26.

Despite reduced power, I get WJZY at a full 10 bars in Spartanburg County. And yes I know I am beyond the designated market, but just pointing out they have a good signal since the new repack antenna. WCNC is a bit weaker here due to a directional pattern, and WBTV remains very strong.

WJZY 46 come in strong for me also in Spartanburg County about 3 miles from I-85 / Hwy 221

Did anyone notice that NBC Nightly News aired on 18.8 Cozi TV, on 4/6/20 at 7:30PM?

I DVR an hour of The Munsters every night from 7-8 PM.

On that evening, a blank screen appeared from 7:00 until 7:15, at which time color bars appeared, and there was a loud audio tone, with “NBCU DRYCREEK XA” at the top of the screen, and a timer running at the bottom. Then at 7:30, a stretched version (with black bars at the top and bottom) of NBC Nightly News aired.

I know NBC Universal owns Cozi. But still a program that WCNC has the rights to in Charlotte, aired on a WCCB station. I don’t know, but that may be a legal issue.

Other than WTVI (in Repack Phase 10: May 2, 2020 - July 3, 2020) are there any other local stations still not completely finished with the repack changes, reduced power level, and/or antenna replacement?

It was posted above that WJZY had applied for a continued reduced power allowance until the Fall.

Their signal is a huge mess, I know that...

I live about six miles from the transmitter, and have an antenna pointed right at it. The strength stays at 100%, but the quality will go from 100% to 60% to zero to 1% to 40% and back to 100%, all in about the time it takes to read that sentence. Just enough interference to ruin what I am recording.

Under those circumstances, even a low powered station should perform better.

You are over driving your tuner with their signal. That is what is causing your bouncing in quality.

Great question, maybe some broadcast folks will chime in, this does not include opinions just facts please.

I don’t doubt that, but there are some other odd facts related to this:

1. It gets worse when the wind is blowing.
2. My Sony TV doesn’t seem to encounter this problem, only the DVR+, and both are on the same antenna.
3. I have the same problem with WSOC (but only since the repack) whose transmitter is considerably further away, but only on one of the small antennas pointed at it. My large directional antenna, also pointed at WSOC, never flickers.
(All of the aforementioned antennas are shown in the picture under my screen name.)

In addition to WTVI, here are the rest of the Charlotte DMA stations that have yet to move or are currently on STA or Auxiliary facilities:

46.x WJZY (Fox) and their guest station 55.1 WMYT (MyNet) moved to their final RF number, but they are on a reduced power STA until they replace their mask filter.

58.x WUNG (UNC's Concord signal) is on an aux facility on their final RF number until they complete their final buildout. Their latest progress report on April 9th says they received all their equipment, but construction is delayed due to COVID-19 limiting the availability of construction crews. (Most of these crews are not local to the area and stay at home orders and hotel closures are creating a backlog)

28.1 WGTB-CD moved to their final RF number, but they are still operating on a reduced power STA. As of their latest progress report on April 10th, they have yet to begin construction because, by the time their maximization application was granted, the crews were already booked solid, you can see additional details in this FCC filing:
https://enterpriseefiling.fcc.gov/da...7081ef3a3400bb

16.1 WCEE-LD (Estrella) still needs to move from RF 16 to RF 17, but they are a LP station so they aren't assigned a specific phase and they don't have to file progress reports, so no specific information on how far along they are is available. As of now, their construction permit for RF 17 expires in January 2022.

Thanks. Any word on 25.1 WDCM, the TBN affiliate? It hasn’t been seen or heard from, since the repack. Thanks.

Since WDMC-LD is a LP station it wasn't protected in the repack, so they were forced off air when WJZY needed to sign on their RF 25 facility back in September. They're silent until they can complete the buildout of their RF 20 facility. They last made a 399 filing back in November to cover the costs of a new transmitter and antenna.

16.1 WCEE-LD (Estrella) still needs to move from RF 16 to RF 17, but they are a LP station so they aren't assigned a specific phase and they don't have to file progress reports, so no specific information on how far along they are is available. As of now, their construction permit for RF 17 expires in January 2022.
Also WSOC-CR Crowder's Mtn. translator is not yet operational on RF12. According to rabbitears. Don't know any official details.

I wonder if that is causing my flaky signal on 9.1 and 9.2? The display numbers have never been other than that, so I really thought I was getting the signal from the main transmitter in Newell. But the problem started with the repack. As previously stated, this only occurs on a small antenna pointed almost due east. My large directional antenna, pointed in the same direction, has no signal dropouts. I checked just now - the signal quality is solid at 100%, and the strength is currently 60%. But during the day, both typically drop intermittently, and are all over the place on the meter. Windy days are much worse.
