ATSC 3.0 News - WZTV, WUXP, and WNAB

- Posted May 23rd, 2020 at 7:56pm
I just happened to see this when I came across the commercial on WNAB CW58 from which I got the screenshot below. As you can see in the picture, in order to continue to watch WNAB CW 58, you will have to rescan on June 23rd after 10am. I checked all their websites and only WZTV, WUXP, and WNAB had anything about rescanning on that date, and they all said the same thing. Giving that they all said the same thing, right now, I have no idea who will be the ATSC 3.0 station. I am providing links to the rescan article on each of their websites below with the screenshot of the commercial. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

Thanks for the update. This came out of left field. There is such paltry information about ATSC 3.0. Just guessing, but I feel WTVF will be the ATSC 3.0 station. Sinclair will be launching their first ATSC 3.0 station on May 26th in Las Vegas.

I agree about WTVF likely to be first ATSC3 in Middle TN. I saw a FCC filing by WTVF back in January "As part of the process to transition to its repack channel, WTVF constructed an interim facility capable of operating on Ch. 36 and it would now like to license the interim facility as an auxiliary facility." "WTVF proposes to operate the auxiliary DTV facility with an ERP of 1000 kW" I think this would be for the ATSC 3.0 transmitter.

Good catch on that info. Checking the specs on the interim transmitter used during the repack from the Form 399 filings with the FCC, it is ATSC 3.0 ready.

Is stadium, charge, and dabl network down on wnab's subchannels - I'm able to get wnab cw58 but the other three stopped working. I even rescanned.

What you are actually seeing is WNAB 58.2-58.4 from WTVF rf36. The WNAB subchannels are still showing on WNAB rf30. Are you seeing any 30.4-30.6? Sometimes, when there are two of the same channels, when you scan, the previous locked channels get pushed back to their broadcasting channel, in this case WNAB's rf30, not to be confused with WUXP 30, which is on rf21.

I have recast and it shows those two channels and their subchannels correctly. When WNAB strengthened their signal, I was able to get it and their subchannels again. Now the subchannels just stopped working but 58.1 still works.
