Got this reply from Marlon Kiser, the President & General Manager of WGTE, giving an update on their plans to transmit digital:


WGTE will begin digital broadcasting by the end of October.

We were granted an extension of our start date by the FCC because of delays in the receipt and installation of new microwave

antennae and some other equipment.

Are they on the air? I can't see them, but I don't know if that's because they're delayed or because my OTA antenna stinks :)

Yes,

WGTE is on the air. They started full time broadcasting 10/31. Surprisingly Buckeye Cable also started carrying WGTE-DT as well and they're including all 5 of their multicasting offerings. You may have to manually punch in 29 to pick them up but they're now showing up as:


30-1 - Children Programing (no content yet that I've seen).

30-2 - Learning channel (also no content yet)

30-3 - Standard (SD) broadcast

30-4 - WGTE World (no content yet)

30-5 - HDTV (24 hour HiDef content. Mostly a loop now of eye candy type content.


Buckeye carries all five as 630, 631, 632, 633, & 634. They reordered the content a bit with the HiDef channel up front on 630.

I don't use remapping on my main DTV tuner (DTC-100); it will not let me delete the analog stations.
