Thanks, I totally skipped that page (haven't visited in a bit and started on an earlier page, read a bit but then skipped to the end).
The repack definitely created a huge mess in Philadelphia (and other markets) that's taking a while to clean up. As for 6ABC on low VHF that was their fault. They chose the channel before the DTV transition of 2009. There's no where for them to move now.57 is coming in fine but 29 is still problematic. Is this the only major market with so many issues and with the most popular channel running on VHF-LO?
Their signal isn't too hard to pick up. Many people just don't have the right antenna. You need one with low VHF capability. Most antennas are optimized for high VHF and UHF. 95% of antenna users probably have no idea what either is - hence the reception problems.I haven’t seen WPVI since they went back to VHF. Was nice when they were on UHF.
