WKUW-LD 40 is Back on the Air, Again!

Well, WKUW-LD channel 40 is back on the air again. Hopefully, for good this time. I think I saw it come on the air a little after 1:30pm. Unless any more news breaks, that is all for now.

It's about time I was having withdraw from not being able to watch Quest TV.

Anyone in the Spring Hill area to receive WKUW now? I used to get it before the change, now I'm still not seeing it.

That's probably because when they were on channel 40 before, they were broadcasting at the highest in power they could at 15kw, but now that they are broadcasting on channel 28, they had to cut the power down from 15kw to 10kw. So, that maybe what has happened here.

I was afraid something like that was what happened. I seem to be right at the edge for some of those low power stations. Oh well, it is what is. Thanks for the extra information!

WKUW-LD 40 is Back on the Air, Well, They Was?!

I just happen to notice that WKUW channel 40 is back on the air. It is now broadcasting on channel 28. (FYI, WNPX is not broadcasting on 28. It is, and has always been, on channel 36.) So, all you have to do is just rescan your TV and then you should be able to see channel 40 as 40.1-40.7. The channels are all the same as they were before they went off the air.
Update: Right now at 3:25pm, they are back off the air. If any more news pops up, I will post it here first.

Several Updates on Different Stations

First off, I would like to say sorry for not keeping the website up to date. If anyone noticed this past weekend, I have had the website offline so that I can fix it, but now I am back in business. Now for the business part, I just got word today from someone with the company that owns WKUW channel 40. They replied back to my e-mail saying, "I suspect based on construction schedules the station could be back on air in the next 60 days". I am hoping it is sooner to now than it is 60 days from now. Also, through various sources including Cablecutter, there has been some network changes and some new addition of networks. I am just going to list all the changes below. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

  • WRTN 6.6 - Action → Jewelry TV
  • WJDE 31.4 - HSN → (new network) NewsNet
  • WJDE 31.7 - (new network and channel) Faith TV
  • WJDE 31.8 - (new network and channel) GEB
  • WLLC 42.5 - (new network and channel) NuestraVisión

Thanks for all the updates! If only WRTN and WJDE had a better signal so us poor souls down here in Spring Hill could actually get them. However, good to hear that maybe it is just a little longer to wait on WKUW.

If I remember, WJDE was going to be moving and getting a higher power. Have you heard if that is still happening and when?

by "NashDigie" on 2/04/2019 at 10:17PM   

Yes, that is correct. They are, right now, on top of the L&C building in downtown Nashville broadcasting at just 5.3kw. They will be moving from there to a tower at the intersection of Dickerson Pk., Briley Pkwy., and I-65 just north of Nashville. Also, they will be going from 5.3kw up to 15kw. All this will happen in Phase 6 of the repack with all other Nashville TV stations that are changing channels which will be between Sept. 7th and Oct. 18th, except WNPT.
