Watched one episode yesterday...every few minutes everything froze for a second.
You’re lucky you even got a signal, Just wait when the station moves to RF Channel 3.

By the time that happens...might as well, again, get a whole new antenna.


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)

I like Red Green and appreciate the info!

His program is one of the reasons I wished Comcast still carried WCMU here in Metro Detroit.


MEMO TO 89-EX: FIX YOUR SHITTY SOUNDING AUDIO!! WE CAN HARDLY HEAR THE FRIGGIN' STATION! Thanks in advance.

In fact, I still remember when CBET would still air first-run Red Green episodes, even during those periods in which it wasn't anywhere to be found on the WTVS schedule. WTVS itself is notable for being the first US station to air Red Green.

You know they should try to put that channel or channels on Roku or Pluto TV or this new one called Xumo.

Why didn't WHNE just move to UHF 14. With the right directional pattern, they'd be able to not interfere with CHCH or WLAJ and still cover a good amount of population.

EDIT: Thanks to the FCC being way too generous with their protected contours, WLAJ would be a problem

WLAJ would be a H*** problem. 73 miles between the transmitter sites. 980kW.

Since UHF 26 is now open, can't WHNE ask for permission to move back to that frequency?

WUPW's contour on 26 reaches all the way to Allen Park. It's really a matter of what's more important: Downriver or Oakland County?

UPDATE: A couple days ago, WHNE applied with the FCC to operate as a Digital LPTV on VHF 3, and have requested an exception be made so they can operate at 6.5 kW.
