Repack Update - WTVF RF 5 and WJDE

- Posted November 20th, 2019 at 4:15pm
WTVF RF 5 came back on the air just after 10:30am this morning. I am hoping that this is the last of it all for WTVF. Now, I know that WZTV, WHTN, WJFB, and WNAB are all still operating at low power, and I don't know of any new news about any of them, but I do have to remind everyone to rescan your TVs or converter boxes this late Friday or Saturday because sometime this Friday, WJDE-CD channel 31 will be changing channels to 23 and will be powering up from 5.3kw to 15kw. Their new channel will be located at the intersection of Briley Pkwy., I-65, and Dickerson Pike. Until then or when more news breaks, that is all for now.

I've rescanned several times today and I'm still not getting WJDE channel 31. The weather may be delaying things.

Yeah, it's either that or they are having trouble.

I e-mailed Tom Fawbush about WJDE channel 31. He said channel 31 is completely off the air right now and it will not be back on the air until next week when they get the new transmitter installed and powered up.

Well thanks to ALL these stations for keeping the public updated. I thank the people responsible for this site. But for FOX 17, CBS, etc..... you are all a bunch of low life thieves. For well over a month, we've been told to rescan. YET not a word about LOW POWER for now and all this other BS. Politicians, News Media, scum of the earth because you all deal in deception and lies
