WCKV Has Chosen a New Channel

WCKV has now chosen a new channel because of the repack. They are going to change from channel 30 to channel 22 and going from 10kw to 15kw. Unless more news breaks, that is all I have for you right now.

More Repacking LPTV Channel Changes

I just learned two more bits of information about low power TV stations in Nashville. I have found out that WLLC-LD channel 42 is going to channel 19 at 15kw(14.9kw to be exact) at the same height and the same location(at the top of the L&C building). Also, I said that WKUW-LD channel 40 was going to channel 28, but sadly, going from 15kw down to 10kw and from 274m high down to just 78m, but now they have changed it. They have now applied to leave the height at 274m, but they are still going with 10kw. So maybe it won't be as much of a loss as it was going to be. If I hear anything else, I will post it here.

Update: Also, I forgot to also say that WCKV-LP channel 49 has applied to cancel their analog broadcasting license.

Another Update:WCKV is currently broadcasting in digital on RF channel 30(virtual 21). Since WNAB will be moving from channel 23 to 30, WCKV will soon be applying for a new channel. When that happens, I will post it here.

WCKV in Clarksville is NOT going off the air. We are simply cancelling the old Analog license that was on CH 49. WCKV went digital early several years ago and broadcasts on digital Ch 30. However due to MY30 (WUXP Full Power) in Nashville using that as their Virtual Channel, WCKV applied to the FCC to use Ch 21 as its Virtual Channel. WCKV is broadcasting 4 OTA Channels: 21.1 (also on Charter Ch 6 and CDE Lightband Ch 12), 21.2, 21.3 and 21.4 (also on CDE Ch 25). Some TV's will not pick up Virtual Channels and may see WCKV on 30.3, 30.4, 30.5, and 30.6, since MY30 is using 30.1 and 30.2. Lastly, because of the FCC Auction, WCKV will need to vacate digital Ch 30 and is applying to move to a new channel. Contact Dan at 931-302-2100 for additional info or details on WCKV.

I am sorry for the misleading post. I have since corrected it. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Repacking LPTV Channel Changes

Today is the first day of the window for low-power stations that couldn't participate in the repack auctions, to change channels. As of 1pm, there are only two of four channels that have applied. They are WKUW-LD 40 and WNPX-LP 20. I know that WNPX-LP 20 is not currently on the air. They are owned by Daystar. The reason they are participating is because WZTV will be moving from channel 15 to 20. They have applied to change channel from 20 to 24 at 15kw (the same power as WKUW 40). WKUW-LD 40, which is 15kw at the height of 274 meters. They are going to channel 28 but sadly, just 10kw at 78 meters. I don't know how that is going to play out, but I don't think its good. Until further details emerge, that is all for now.
