Nashville's Repack Plans

This page is to show all of the information of the stations in Nashville that are being affected by the FCC Repack. The transitioning ERP is what each station will be (temporarily) broadcasting at on an auxiliary antenna when they are bringing down the current antenna (mainly top mounted ones) and putting up the new antenna for the new channel.


Call Letters and Channels Current ERP (Power Level - kW) Transitioning ERP (Power Level - kW) Final ERP (Power Level - kW) Notes
WTVF(5) - 25→36 1000 600 1000 The only change they made was to change their elliptical antenna to an omni-directoinal one.
WNPT(8) - 8→7 17.65 7 17.65 There are two towers in southern Davidson County that are positioned right beside each other. They will be moving from one to the other.
WZTV(17) - 15→20 1000 200 1000
WNPX(28) - 36→32 733 250 1000 They have applied to increase the power from 676kw all the way up to 1000kw.
WJDE(31) - 31→23 5.3 -- 15 This will be an interesting one as WJDE will actually be leaving the L&C building and going to a tower north of Nashville near the intersection of Dickerson Pike and I-65. Updated - They have applied to modify their new channel 23. They have changed the power from 4.45kw to 15kw.
WHTN(39) - 38→16 1000 ? (Unknown at this time) 900 They originally were given, per the FCC, the ERP of 618kw, but they have now applied to increase it to 900kw.
WJFB(44) - 44→25 1000 ? 950 They have now filed for their repack permit. After some structual work on their current tower, they can now construct their post repack channel (25). They have filed for the same specs the FCC gave them. So there is no change in location.Updated - They have now applied to increase their power from 681kw to 950kw.
WNAB(58) - 23→30 350 300 725 Well, they went a lot further then I expected. They have now applied for 725kw. That was a surprise to me.
