More Results of the Spectrum Auction

- Posted March 13th, 2017 at 4:21pm
Of course, you already know that WNPT channel 8 is moving to channel 7 and that WKRN (News 2) RF channel 27 is staying on 27 as well as Cookeville PBS station WCTE staying on channel 22, but I have found out today, some more results. Besides WKRN, WSMV channel 4 and WUXP MyTV 30 are not changing channels. Others I have listed *all channels* below. At this time, I do not know anything about WNPX 28, WJDE-DC 31, WHTN 39, WJFB 44, or WPGD 50. I found all this info out thanks to this link: NAB TV Repack. If I find out any more information, I will post it here.

  • WKRN (2) (No Change)
  • WSMV (4) (No Change)
  • WTVF (5) 25 → 36
  • WNPT (8) 8 → 7
  • WZTV (17) 15 → 20
  • WCTE (22) (No Change)
  • WUXP (30) (No Change)
  • WNAB (58) 23 → 30

Why is WJDE 31 off the air more than they are on the air? IF they are actually on the air, one or more channels will frequently be broadcasting without audio. Does the owner even monitor his channels?? I have been unable to find a Nashville phone number, email address, or website. The best I have been able to obtain is a Kentucky phone number of the owner but that always gets me to a voice mailbox only.

Yes, WJDE appears to be owned by WBNA out of Louisville. Only email contact I have found is Tom Fawbush <tom at>. He normally replies within a couple of days. They have had issues in the past, e.g. someone repeatedly telling GraceNote that they have some alternate channel lineup than what is actually broadcasting, even when given pictures of what is on with channel number shown.

Oh wow. I just recently re connected one of my antennae after a year-and-a-half hiatus and was planning on trying to make some simplifications and improvements to my system at my home near Cookeville. TV Fool would not give me permission to post about a UHF/VHF combiner question even though I was already a member, so I was researching for some help and found this site. This is great! I didn't know about the upcoming RF changes and I think I'll just hang tight for a while. I'm currently getting 9 out of 11 UHF signals right now with a bow-tie UHF antenna pointed near due west with the cabling that was still under my house from before. I'm going to leave it alone; except maybe combine my VHF into my line and try to pickup 4 (10) and then just see what happens after all these changes take place. Anyway, thanks for being here!
