Big News! First Result of the Spectrum Auction for Nashville

If you didn't know already, there has been a spectrum auction going on that just ended last week. The outcome of the auction is that channels 38-51 were sold to wireless companies. Therefore, most, but not all, TV stations participated in the auction. Some are not affected, some are having to change channels, some are going off the air and "piggybacking" on another channel, and some are going completely off the air. All information regarding channel changes are to be released by early April, but over on, there's a page devoted to what station is doing what, and I just found out via the "PBS Station" link on that page that WNPT channel 8 will be moving to channel 7. What this means for WRTN-LD channel 7, I don't know. Also, there will not be a change for Cookeville PBS WCTE channel 22. When I find out more information, I will let you know.

Update on RetroTV on WRTN 6.5

Thanks to Paul, I have an update on WRTN 6.5 (RetroTV). WRTN owner said he was having dish issues with Retro, and that he was trying to fix it. Also, he said he was bringing back Rev'n as well. I would like to thank Paul again for that information, and whenever tv news breaks, I will post it here.

Tuff TV reappeared on 6.5 today and Retro TV has moved to 6.7. I don't know if this is permanent or not. Ron

Tonight 6.2 is black (was Jewelry TV, so not a great loss), and 6.7 (RetroTV) is frozen. Sigh. Wrote to Rick Goetz and Chris Waller. Hopefully someone can fix it soon.

Update on WJNK-LP Channel 34

I know that most people don't think about this station all that much, if at all, but awhile back, they had a permit for a digital channel 28 at 13.3kw in northern Davidson County on the same tower as WNPX, WPGD, and WKUW-LD. That permit expired on Sept. 1, 2015. Now, just today, they have applied to just 'flash-cut' to digital, which means that they will turn off analog channel 34 and turn on digital channel 34 at 15kw, the same power as WKUW-LD channel 40. As of today, they are still broadcasting analog channel 34. Until further news breaks, that's all for now.

WJDE-LD Is Having A Signal Issue

I have heard from several people that they are having trouble receiving WJDE-LD channel 31. I, personally, have never received and am unable to ever receive channel 31. So, I had e-mailed a person related to the station, and they replied back to me. Below is the response I got back.

"Yeah we're having some signal issues today. We hope to have them resolved tomorrow. Stay tuned."

I've been having problems receiving them too, but I'm on the fringe of being able to receive them anyway. Any minor thing will cause it not to come in. Glad to know it isn't just me and that WJDE is on it.

WJDE is back on the air. It went off sometime around the 16th. or 17th. and came back on the air this afternoon.
