WKUW-LD 40 is Off the Air and Switching Channels
As most of you have probably already noticed, WKUW-LD channel 40 is off the air. I just e-mailed them last night, and I got an answer from them today. They are off the air (and will be for two weeks) so that they can switch channels. They are probably going to change channels from 40 to 28. Also, they will be going from 15kw down to 10kw. When they come back on the air, we will see how the going down in power will effect the reception. Until then or when more news breaks, that is all for now.2 Comments - To post a comment, please log in. Show Comments
This is helpful info, thanks. Does this mean that Channel 28 (currently ION and subchannels) will move at all? Or will the WKUW channels (Buzzr, etc.) be added as subchannels of channel 28? Starting with 28.7? Thanks!
Yeah, I hear this a lot. Channel 28 (WNPX, ION) is actually broadcasting on channel 36 and has always been. It will stay on channel 36 until September or October of next year. When you do a channel scan on your TV, your TV picks up channel 36 and reads information within the signal that tells it to display it on channel 28. Yes, WKUW has been broadcasting and displaying on channel 40, but when it starts broadcasting on channel 28, your TV will read that same information and display it on as before on channel 40. I hope I have explained it well. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Any word on how much longer WKUW-LD 40 will be off the air?
Yeah, I don't know at this time. I am currently trying to retrieve some information on that. As soon as I get any information, I will post it here on the website.

WKUW-LD 40 is Back with a New Network
What I mean by "back" is that for the past few days now, WKUW has not been working properly. If you normally receive channel 40, you probably noticed the channel was messing up this past week, but if you looked at your tv (or converter box) signal meter, you would see that the channel was coming in strong despite it looking garbled. That's because last Thursday (09/27) afternoon for a few hours, WKUW 40, WPGD 50 (rf 33), WJNK-LD 34, and WRTN-LD 6 (rf 7) all went off the air for a few hours. Before then, channel 40 was fine, but after they all came back on the air, channel 40 was like that, and as of yesterday (10/02), it is not only fixed, but they have replaced QVC with the new CBN 24/7 news channel. That is all I have for you right now. If any more news breaks, I will post it here.
I notice that WKUW-LD was off as of Thursday October 4. and on WJNK-LD 34.2 there is an announcement about a new Adventist Chanel comm on November 1st.
As of Friday October 5th WKUW-LD is back on the air.

News about WJFB and WUXP
The owner of WKUW-LD channel 40 is buying full power station WJFB channel 44 from the TCT network. What will the programming be on WJFB? I do not know at this time. A link to the article is below.
Also, if you have been experiencing problems trying to receive WUXP MyTV 30 in the past week, you are not alone. They have been having a transmission problem since last week, and they have ordered parts to fix it and will repair it soon. A link to their Facebook post is below as well. Until more news break, that is all I have for you right now.

9/26/2018 Hi, Are you seeing anything on 6.1 through 6.7? I lost the channels a few days ago. 6.2 was out for a week or so but came back on for a couple days and now all channel 6.x are gone (for me). Are you aware of a problem? thanks, Keith
Sorry.... I posted this question in the wrong place...
For the past couple of weeks, I have been able to receive it every now and then. I don't know if it has been the rainy weather lately or if channel 6 is doing something, but for the just past few days, I haven't been receiving at all. I will check about it and see and get back with you. Thanks.
