  1. Looks like Trip has some of the coming changes on Rabbitears

    Appears to be 4 moving in Tulsa, OK so far.

    KOTV from 45 to 26 (CBS)
    KMYT from 42 to 34 (MyNET)
    KGEB from 49 to 14 (Golden Eagle Broadcasting)
    KUTU-CD from 25 to 27 (Univision)

    Should be at least one more as KWHB (Lesea) is full power on 47
     
  2. I wonder if this is some sort of money grab or if they're having to get out of the way of an Oklahoma City or Fort Smith station that's moving to 25.

    So much for the assurances that Class A stations aren't moving.
     
  3. Probably domino effect of changes in both of those markets and making a buffer between OKC and Ft Smith.
    KWTV (CBS) in OKC moving from 39 to 25 and KFDF-CD in Fort Smith moving from 44 to 25

    edit: also have KOZJ (PBS) in Joplin moving from 25 to 35
     
  4. In Green Bay, Wisconsin, the virtual channels will stay where they're at, while the physical RF channels change position on these stations:
    WLUK-TV (FOX) 11 (11→12)
    WCWF (CW) 14 (21→15)
    WLWK-CD (NBC) 22 (22→19), repeater for WGBA-TV (NBC) 26
    WGBA-TV (NBC) 26 (41→14)
    WACY-TV (MY) 32 (27→36)

    In Madison, Wisconsin, the virtual channels will stay where they're at, while the physical RF channels change position on these stations:
    WISC-TV (CBS) 3 (50→11)
    WMSN-TV (FOX) 47 (49→18)
    WIFS (IND) 57 (32→21)

    In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the virtual channels will stay where they're at, while the physical RF channels change position on these stations:
    WTMJ-TV (NBC) 4 (28→32)
    WITI (FOX) 6 (33→31)
    WISN-TV (ABC) 12 (34→28)
    WVTV (CW) 18 (18→27)

    In Wausau, Wisconsin, the virtual channels will stay where they're at, while the physical RF channels change position on these stations:
    WMOW (CW/ABC) 4 (12→13), repeater for WAOW (ABC/CW) 9

    In La Crosse/Eau Claire, Wisconsin, the virtual channels will stay where they're at, while the physical RF channels change position on these stations:
    WQOW (ABC) 18 (15→25)
    WXOW (ABC) 19 (48→28)
    WEZY-LP (IND) 23 (51→35), repeater for KQEG-CD (IND) 23
     
  5. Not sure where you heard that, but nobody at the FCC has ever said that one. In fact, the optimization said exactly the opposite; Class A stations are significantly cheaper to move than full-power stations and were thus less likely to be kept on current channels if the alternative meant moving a full-power.

    Tampa8 and bpiddle like this.
  6. Where did you get this information
     
  7. Interesting Detroit will have two channels on 32
     
  8. Time to start trying out new TV antennas I guess.
     
  9. I wish KJRH would move to something else with more power so I can get it in MCALESTER. Or put a repeater on the mast 5 miles out of town like the others.

    Sent from my LG-H900 using the SatelliteGuys app!
     
  10. Interesting results for Baltimore.

    Call Sign Old New
    WBAL (NBC) 11 12
    WJZ ( CBS) 13 11
    WMAR (ABC) 29 22
    WBFF (FOX) 46 26
    WMPT (PBS) 42 31
    WNUV (CW) 40 25
     
  11. You have to wonder why they couldn't just move WJZ to 12 and call it a day.
     
  12. Those moves didn't make any sense to me either.
     
  13. Ugh, WBSF is moving from RF46 to RF23, and WEYI is moving from RF30 to RF18.

    I have an 40' antenna tower I'm putting up at our new house, trying to get WUWB-LD RF20 which is up in Rose City, and only a 5.0 NM 2Edge for me. I have a channel 20 jointenna and another filter, but I'm not sure if those other channels that will now bracket RF20 will cause issues. They are MUCH more powerful. Then again, maybe the jointenna will knock those signals down a bit and help getting 20. Hard to say until I get to that point.

    I'd have to put up a 190ft tower to make WUWB LOS, that's not going to happen...

    The odd thing, is WAQP is on RF48, and there's nothing showing where they are moving?

  16. DC area (very limited info)

    WAZW 46 to 30
    WAZT 45 to 26
    WJLA stays at 7
     
  17. The problem is WUWB is only up about 150 feet. Also the station was sold
     
  18. Tell me more, when did it sell! Are they still broadcasting, etc?

    I used to have a cabin up on Sage Lake not too far from the tower, but we sold it before this station went up. We used to go into Rose City all the time for the New Faull Inn, (Pizza and their Fish was GOOD!) but I heard even that went bankrupt and got sold?
     
  19. Yes on cable no ota
