Re: RePack Phase 8 started

.... I use a special antenna for WJBK, along with a combiner to add the UHF ones via UHF antenna. ... Is this some kind of diplex combiner or just a simple combiner? Does anybody here use diplex filters/combiners to put their vhf and uhf sources on the same line? If so, what ones? Just a simple spl...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

NIce strong signal on all of these:

WJBK, WDIV, WXYZ, WMYD, WPXD, WKBD, WTVS and WWJ.

I'm good to go.

If I'm not in the rabbitears.info green zone of signal strength, I remove it from my channel lineup.

The WDIV channels on RF45 are gone. They’re on RF32 now.
WTVS has flipped over to RF20.
WWJ test pattern is on RF21.

Re: AT&T Questions Broadcasters' Use of TV Spectrum

Of course ATT wants broadcasting killed. They will get the spectrum plus then you are hostage to their TV services like DirectTV and/or Uverse.

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

The big 3 are up testing tonite. WWJ on RF21, WXYZ on RF25 and WDIV on RF32.
Signals are strong near Ypsilanti and seem very steady. I would guess less LTE interference in the 500MHz band.

WHNE is hard at work getting the new transmitter ready for March 13th.

I have a DVR that I can manually scan channels, so far nothing on 3 so far.
Hopefully they move soon. They need to give WTVS time to test on RF20.

I’m waiting for WPXD to bring something up on RF24. Should be soon I would think.

Re: If you care about free Radio and Television....

The biggest enemy to free OTA television is the conditional access system built into ATSC 3.0

When the broadcasters get it implemented, they will be just as bad as the cable/satellite providers.

Re: WHNE 14.12

The solution is MPEG4 AVC H.264. Most newer TV's decode it and the even the $30 newer converter boxes decode and DVR in it. WBFF in Baltimore is starting to use it.
WHNE could get 12 channels easy into their 6MHz with it.
