I'll scan channel 14 when I get home tonight. (Been doing this about 3 days a week anyway) And I'll check in the morning before I leave for work. Also has anyone heard about UPN? There suppost to go live on channel 48 out of Troy soon to.
From what I can tell it doesn't appear as though they have filed for an extension w/ the FCC to delay bringing it on. Their current extension runs through the 24th. Hopefully they'll get rolling shortly. On UPN from Troy it looks like all that is holding that one up FWIW is some money coming in to the owner of the station from his architectural work done at Ft. Rucker, he says that the HD equipment is ordered and ready to ship but he can't get it until his check comes in. I got a chuckle out of that one when I read it.
No problems here. I would check your cables and plugs. I had that problem and found out it was a bad cable from the Antenna to the pre amp. It must have broken inside the cable because from the outside it looked fine. Do you turn your Antenna alot?
Any news on WSFA? I have been out of town for about a week (last Thursday I found I had a detached retina and had surgery last Friday at UAB) and scanned when I got home but no WSFA digital. Looks like it's getting down to a "race" between WSFA and WAKA. Stan
Looking at the FCC website, WSFA still has not filed for any extentions on going HD. I would assume they are looking to go live shortly. WAKA filed for another extention on 2/24 to go thru 10/24. So the best guess would be late this year, they are still proclaiming no money.
While I was down at my parents in Ozark, I had a lot of time to watch TV. I noticed that both ABC and CBS down there are transmitting HD (the NBC station for that area is WSFA). Looks like CBS is now available in southeast Alabama, southwest Alabama, north east Alabama and north
central Alabama but not in the capital city area. I guess we are at the mercy of the station owners. Stan
Thanks for your e-mail. We have completed our digital transmission facility. We are working out a few of the bugs and should be testing soon. Then we must get final approval from the FCC to begin broadcasting on a full time basis.
The reason we are behind WNCF is that we applied to the FCC to change our digital channel from 55 to 14. Long term it is better for us and better for our viewers to be on 14, but it took many months to get that application approved by the FCC.
Also we are building a full power facility. WNCF and WCOV both have low power facilities that do not cover the entire viewing area.
We are sorry for the delay, but it will be worth the wait.
