WDHC Dickson Changes Channel

- Posted November 5th, 2022 at 6:52pm
I just found out that WDHC in Dickson will be changing their virtual channel from 6 to 11. This is because both WDHC and WRTN were using the same channel as their virtual (display) channel. I don't know when the change will take in effect if it hasn't already. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

Will it still transmit on 6?

WDHC is still on physical channel 6 but the channel it shows is channel 11.

WRTN is showing classic country music videos on channel 6.5. Alan Jackson, Pam Tillis,etc..

Does anyone have any idea when (WRTN-6.3) RF 17, THIS! Network will be turned back on.....I keep seeing a page pop up on the screen saying, "Someone needs to flip the switch" Flip the switch already! I have a good signal after the move but programming, it goes and comes and freezes.

Right now, I do not receive WRTN, but last time I saw it, 6.3 was a blank screen with music playing. When did it switch to that screen you're talking about?

THIS (6.3) goes from a blank screen to something about a switch that needs to be pushed for THIS! programing, don't see it now ...and the music channel (6.5) was frozen the last time I looked, also what happened to (WSMV) W29FR-D, lost it in the last scan..

W29FR is still broadcasting. There are no problems with the station.

WRTN 6.5 has been frozen for about a week. The 6.3 screen wanting a code for This TV to receive the programing comes and goes. I don't know why he hasn't fixed these problems. As for the WSMV translators, they used to appear as 4.10 and 4.11. Now I can only receive W29FR-D (even though I am getting an excellent signal on both channels), and it shows up as 70.1. This happened when they changed channel 29 subchannels to the same as channel 15, which does the same thing. I believe they are both identifying as 4.10 and your tv will only let you receive one of them. Also, Quest finally disappeared from 35.4 a couple of weeks ago. It now shows infomercials and is a duplicate of 40.5.

Thanks for all the info.

wdhc shows family channel on 6.1 and sports on 6.2

Just drove by WDHC and the logo on station door is now WDHC 11. However, I am not receiving any signal over the air on 11.1

Found this info on Wikipedia... "WDHC-LD is a low-powered television station that is licensed to and serving Dickson, Tennessee. It is affiliated with The Family Channel network, and it is owned by R & F Communications, Inc. of Dickson, Tennessee. It broadcasts on VHF channel 6. The station's transmitter is located near Cumberland Furnace, Tennessee." Cumberland Furnace is about 15 miles North of Dickson.

I believe that that channel 11 is the virtual channel for WDHC-LD and it is still broadcasting on channel 6. They had to change the channel they identified as because WRTN was already identifying as channel 6.

My concern is not the 6.1 or 11.1 issue; but that according to the comments in Wikipedia the station tower is in Cumberland Furnace (some 15 miles north of Dickson) and that I cannot receive the signal. It may be like channel 8. Unless the antenna is pointed directly toward the tower you will not receive the signal.
