There is a link in the very first post in this thread. Here is the Baltimore market repack assignments.
WBFF (45) and WMPB (22) are in Phase 8. The rest are in Phase 9.

Thanks but that does not include the information I was seeking. Or, if it does, I cannot see it.

I was looking for exact dates (if announed) . Not ifnormation on phases.

Phase 8 is supposed to be complete by 3/13/2020. Phase 9 is supposed to be complete by 5/01/2020. As we approach those dates, I'm sure that the stations will be putting up notices to rescan your TV's.

WBFF has not announced a date. WMPB had previously announced a tentative 3/3 date, but that's been removed from their website as far as I can tell.

Thanks. It sounds like there is no database or reference for this but I will monitor each station's website. I was hoping t would be easier but that was not a realistic expectation.

tvanswers.org is supposed to be that site, but I've found it to be only somewhat reliable. Plenty of stations seem to ignore its existence and never provide dates.

They put the dates back, and they no longer say "Tentative" next to them.

Thank you Trip. I am in falls Church, VA. I get WMPT well and WMPB has always been erratic for me--though there is no need to get more than one of these channels.
