WJFB has Applied for a License

What that means is that they have now fixed the problem and should be broadcasting at their full allotted power, but right now as I type this, they have been going on and off the air (currently off at the moment). So, if you are unable to receive them at the moment, please just wait a while and try again. They may come back on the air later. I will update then when they do come on the air. Until then, that's all for now.

Just checking to see if anyone was receiving WJFB yet? I keep checking on and off, but so far a signal of zero.

No, sorry, they never have came back on the air. Once they do, I will post it asap.

So happy to stumble upon this... WJFB apparently obtained the rights to MeTV and have been broadcasting on AttUverse #66. The national MeTV feed on ch 1136 was a joy...some of the shows and movies were in beautiful HD and when not, the upscaled images were far better than anything I have ever seen old SD shows. Does anyone know if WJFB will have an HD counterpart on Uverse? What I have seen has been almost unwatchable.

I have a UHF-only, 8-bay antenna (AntennaCraft U8000). I'm as far as 82 miles from Nashville towers. I'm currently getting: WKRN (2), WTVF (5), CW20 (Crossville), WCTE 22 (Cookeville PBS), Ion 28, MyTv30, and TBN 50. They are all 2 bars and about 80% of the time received; WTVF is weaker than before and so is ION. What I'm missing are: the low power stations, WJFB-44, WZTV 17 Fox, CW 58, the old 38 religious, and the two VHF channels 4 and 8. Before the MeTV move, I did not not have the VHF stations as I currently have no VHF antenna and I never could receive CW-58 unless atmospheric conditions were very good. As I'm typing Friday, November 1, I've not been able to receive WJFB except but just a few mornings ago when I did a rescan and 44 came up on my tuner. It came up 2 out of 5 bars signal strength (about the same as all the other channels for me at my home slightly northeast of Cookeville). I did a rescan after reading here that it was on the air at full power. I rescanned that morning and sure enough, I had it. When I came home from work that afternoon, I no longer had a good signal on the channel, so I rescanned again just in case my tuner might pick it up somewhere else on the dial, such as on 40, which has happened a time or two. Ever since that one morning, I've not been able to get it back. I also lost Fox 17 on that dreadful rescan a couple days ago. My tuner won't allow me to manually add channels (it's a TCL with no numbers on the remote). So depending on atmospheric conditions and the power output transmitting from towers at the time when I scan, I either gain or lose channels and the only way I can get them back is another rescan. Whenever I do a scan and get everything back, I'm going to then leave them (and not rescan) and just hide the ones that won't come in. That way, I'm not constantly rescanning just to try and get back what I've lost.
