When will WHNE-LD move from 20 to?

Got a question? Can't figure out how to get that neat picture under your user name? Need any other tech tips? Post it here! Also, this is where I make important site related announcements.

Since WTVS is moving to UHF 20, did WHNE-LD find a new channel to move from UHF 20 yet?

I think this would be better off in the Metro Detroit section...

Since the repack list only includes surviving full-power and non-displaced Class A stations and the UHF dial will be pretty packed now that it's going to be cut down to end at RF 36, I wouldn't be surprised if, WHNE were to survive in the end when this repacking process gets in full swing, they wind up getting shoehorned into a low-band VHF allocation (RF 2-6). Though, to be honest, I wouldn't get my hopes up about this, as this is probably a best-case scenario (not to mention that the Low-VHF space is mind-boggling terrible for 8VSB ATSC digital broadcasts, as I'm sure over-the-air households in the Philadelphia area very well know).
Isn't it nice how deregulation has brought us such oversized and dangerously overleveraged broadcast owners? (Yes, I'm looking at YOU, Sinclair, Nexstar, Cume-U-Less, and iFart!)

Oh, OK. But VHF (2-6) should be available for WHNE, though, right?

In Toledo, Ohio, where will WVMY-LP (Channel 23) be going to?

I've queried the owner of WHNE and he's fairly confident that there will be slot available for him on the same tower, VHF if not UHF. He won't specify though as he's still working on it.

WJBK (Fox 2) is on RF 7 and CBET is on RF 9, so WHNE will have to move to 2, 3, 4 or 6. In the meantime, by the way, WLMB in Toledo, OH is on RF 5.
