The San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose stations are all changing channels on April 29, as well. They say to re-scan at or after 1 pm that day to get all of the changes.

I have been getting atsc 1.0 signals from walnut grove to my house in Lake of the Pines, about 60 miles, for over 10 years. I have some multi path issues, so
have been watching the atsc 3.0 development to see if I should upgrade.

From what I can see, looks like the new sets coming out soon with atsc 3.0 tuners have no ability to also get atsc 1.0 signals? (Am looking at sony 900H since cheapest)
(would love a atsc 3.0 stand alone tuner like I have many 1.0’s, but so far seen nothing cost decent).

So, trying to find a listing for walnut grove of what channels also have now 3.0 broadcasts, and cannot seem to find a list anywhere. If only a few are converted, and not what we watch,
then another reason to hold of buying new TV’s.

Okay, end of 2020. Boo. But, I guess if its one channel, they met that goal. Guess will be staying with 1.0 for a while :(


Thanks

That broadcasters consortium loves to brag about rolling out in the top 40 markets, and to help convince you that progress is being made, conveniently lists all of the top 40 markets, with the implication that all are on their way to converting. They don't say which stations, or when... but say, did you know that ATSC 3.0 is expected to deploy in the top 40 markets, and why here's that list of top 40 markets... again....

Nope. Reality is a bit more lonesome.

As there is no mandate from the FCC for conversion, and lighthouse tower arrangements have to be negotiated among multiple local broadcasters, not to mention who goes first, and who gets left behind maintaining the 5 year 1.0 service, well, the chances are still pretty good that ATSC 3.0 could end up being the HD Radio of our times. Sinclair certainly wants it to happen, as they have a subsidiary that has developed the bootstrap technology needed for ATSC 3.0 to work, and they are free to license that technology without having to offer it at the same rate to all interested parties. iBiquity had the same technology licensing arrangement for HD Radio, and that's worked out just great (oh... wait...). With local ad revenues seizing up due to pandemic lock-downs, what local broadcaster, even the Owned and Operated, will have the free cash flow or desire to convert? By the time ATSC 3.0 is in all 40 markets, the carriage fees earned by locals to OTT streaming services may outstrip whatever custom revenues could be gleaned from an ATSC 3.0 marketing model.

New technology is always a cool looking roadway, if you can ignore the wreckages shoved off to the side of the road.

Is there a list of the new channel numbers for April 29th, so I can just manually save just the ones I want instead of rescanning?
You can find a list here: https://www.rabbitears.info/market.php

Once on the site, click the link for Sacramento. In the list that comes up, locate the “Physical Channel” column — for the channels that will be changing frequencies, you’ll see the old channel number with an arrow pointing to the new one.

KMAX is now broadcasting on both RF channels 21 and 24.
KMAX has a solid signal of 17-18 dB SNR on channel 24 this morning using my Winegard 8200 antenna in San Francisco.

Can anyone confirm who has transitioned successfully and who has not?

As of around 1:15pm, KSPX, KMAX, KTXL, and KQCA have transitioned.
Are you able to receive KEZT-CD? If so, has it moved to 34 or is it off the air?
