Title: Television Repack and Digital TV
Post by: Polar Bear on August 09, 2020, 1723 UTC
I don't know about you, but where I live they ran out of channels..

With all the low power translators, there is sometimes as many as 3 stations on the same channel.

I'm using stacked Winegard 8200u with a Channel Master CM 7777 pre amplifier,  with a Antennas Direct XG 91 with another Channel Master CM 7777 pre amp and a antenna switch, rotor, 30' tower, 20' mast.

I view the Pittsburgh,  Altoona / Johnstown market..

I'm not getting anything anymore out of Cleveland OH, Youngstown OH, Morgantown WV, Wheeling, Clarksburg WV.

Do you still have a VHF beam antenna, or even a beam for FM fringe reception? If so, point that at Clarksburg, WV and see if you can get WDTV VHF CH5 on a TV rescan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WDTV     One of the very few VHF Low Band TV channel, that is 8VSB, to be there. The question is, for how long? Too bad about the old Clearfield, PA analog WPSX-TV CH3. They lost a lot of range since the analog to digital transition and use to have viewership in WNY. Can you RX whatever their digital UHF channel is?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WPSU-TV
