How did crappy WLPC get a rf28 spot and a station that runs professionally get low vhf...that BS!!!!

When this repack started WHNE stated that they were going to reconfigure theyre signal a certain way to still be able to be picked up without adding an antenna.I don't know if that's possible with vhf low??

We'll have to wait and see.
Perhaps by renting a .x subchannel from an LPTV that will stay on UHF?

WHNE is running 12 (!) streams, so renting a single .x subchannel from someone is not a solution,
Maybe their thinking is that higher power will be enough to get them snagged by some UHF antennas.

WXYZ is testing on channel 25.1, just a test pattern and tone.

Thanks. Just logged it.

I think it's DTV #200 for me.

I just cleared all my channels and did a complete re-scan and I also picked up 25.1 as you did as well as 21.1 which is WWJ-TV airing bars & tone at present.

WHNE aired a scrolling message on 14.2 last night regarding the repack. Yet again showing that they are the most competent LPTV station in Detroit.

WXYZ (ABC) 7 virtual is switching over to RF25 on March 7th, One week before the others. Just an FYI for those who do not know.

You will see it on their website if you would like to confirm.

WXYZ is already running a test pattern on RF25, and WDIV is also running their test pattern on RF32.


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)

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.
