since that would be the only way to get in one like Justice if ever.
The Justice Channel was available on the Dish Network before WADL even added it.
Very few subchannels have any satellite carriage. I had no idea that Justice was on Dish.

Then again, many of the subchannels air recycled cable programming..
Me neither, I suppose some companies know the dead-end they'd have otherwise.

Tonight I happened to stumble upon another new addition: an audio simulcast of WFDF 910 Superstation on 38.7. Anyone else notice this too?
Yes, I noticed it as well tonight for the first time. Is this a waste? How many are going to listen to a radio program on a televison channel. This is quite a let down compared to a radio program that is actually televised.

It's not common, I can't think of any other full power TV station that does this - aside from stuff like one of our local PBS affiliates carrying a radio reading service on a subchannel.

In Atlanta, an LPTVer carries a few audio channels, mostly radio simulcasts.

The radio station is co-owned, the audio is low bandwidth (likely not impacting any TV subchannels) and it costs them nothing to add it.

I assume that they aren't expecting much out of this.
