Do you know if WTVF will still be broadcasting at 5.11-5.13?

If you meant 5.11-5.13, as far as I know, they will still be broadcasting on those channels.

Thanks for the clarification and for the ATSC 3.0 information in general. Along with WKRN and WNAB, there is no information about WSMV's plans?

Thanks for this all-important post. Yes this post absolutely clears things up. I gathered nothing from the previous string of posts on ATSC 3.0 that reveal what you've laid out here with the exception of the last comment from the previous post, which was a head scratcher. Wow! A whopping 4 NextGen programming stations coming in on RF-21. This is very surprising and very exciting since there will soon be an HDHomerun quad tuner with two of the four tuners in the box dedicated to NextGen, aka ATSC 3.0. This also shows how powerful the new standard will be if they are able to transmit four flagship stations on one signal; presumably most of them at HD quality. My worry is as it always is, reception. I think rf-21 is decent for me but not great. As of this writing, I rarely can receive Rf 20 and rf-30 hardly ever comes in. I've got some new antennae to try out, which allows me to add VHF-high capability for an attempt to start getting WSMV (Stellar Labs 30-2476) and a new UHF-only Stellar Labs antenna, and I have a combiner on hand; but I'm stuck. I got talked in to putting together all my own coax cut to custom lengths with compression fittings and tools to compress them. This would be fine if I could get the wire to come past the F connector. So far, I've been able to successfully compress two out of seven attempts to build cable lengths; so I'm sort of stuck.

Check out videos on YouTube for making custom coax cables with compression fittings. I learned a great deal from them and I now I can make custom cables with ease.
