W15ER-D Call Letters Upcoming Change

- Posted July 21st, 2022 at 3:04pm
I just found out that W15ER-D, which simulcasts WSMV and is owned by Gray Television, has submitted an application to change the call letters of the station. Beginning August 1st, W15ER-D will become WTNX-LD. I know that wasn't much news, but until more news breaks, that's all for now.

I just seen a post on avsforum that when they applied for the call sign change they also applied for a change for telemundo nashville.

I noticed today that channel 15 is now WTNX-LD and is airing Telemundo on 15.1. There is no 15.2. I don't know how long ago this occurred as I have been gone for the last few weeks.

W35dz has come online in Cookeville but I haven't been able to receive the channel yet.

Yeah, I have found that out, I think it was either Thursday or Friday.

I didn't know either until I seen it on Rabbitears.

I'm 43 miles from Cookeville. I am LOS to WCTE. You'd think if W35DZ was on air, I could get it. But I'm also between 39-45 miles from Chattanooga. But with TONS of mountains in between, I seldom see a peep from that area. I'd like to see W14EE come on air too, since it looks to be a repeater for WSMV in Algood. But I'm not holding my breath lol.

The contour of w35dz is up towards the north at 3 kilowatts. You might receive a signal strength but will not pull it in. My location is supposed to receive the channel but nothing has been decoded yet from w35dz. It's probably the way I have the antenna turned. It's turned towards Nashville and picks up Channel 22 from the edge of it.

Actually xmguy, W14EE is already on the air. I was in Cookeville a few months ago. I had my portable setup, but I didn't get to check 14 until I was almost leaving Cookeville. At the time, I thought they weren't on the air yet, but when I did try, I was able to almost lock it in, but not enough to see what it was right before I left Cookeville. By the way, 14 is only operating at 0.2 kw, while W35DZ is operating at 3.0kw.

Just checked my tv and the same thing is happening. Not sure what it will be but it will be good to have.

Thank you for letting me know. I have just sent an e-mail to Mr. Walker of Weigel Broadcasting asking about it. Once I hear something, I will let you know.

I have not been receiving W15ER-D for a week now. I'm wondering if it is still on the air. Also, I started receiving WNPX-LD (channel 20) this afternoon. 20.1 and 20.3 were both airing Daystar and 20.2 was music with scripture in the background. They were identified as 20.1 - WNPX, 20.2 - Latino and 20.3 as Brazil. I don't know why it is identified this way. They may not have everything ready to go yet.

Yes, I forgot to mention that, that WTNX-LD (formerly W15ER-D) is now off the air. It has been off the air for quite some time now. I don't know if they are in the process of switching that over to airing Telemundo or not, because that is where the Telemundo network will be airing. Yes, I have noticed that WNPX-LD channel 20 is now broadcasting more. It started broadcasting with more power at about noon today. Even though it is using more power, I still can't receive it. I have just noticed by other people's reception of the channel, and yes, that is their call letters. The reason for them having those call letters is because back in the "good old" analog days, they use to simulcast (or repeat) WNPX's analog broadcast in Nashville where WNPX's full power analog broadcast was broadcasting from half way between Nashville and Cookeville.

I must have gotten the call sign wrong on channel 20. I'll look later and see what it is. I'm not getting it now.
