WJFB is Back to (Almost) Full Power and WJDE

- Posted December 3rd, 2019 at 5:48pm
Right now, WJFB is back to full power (I think). What I mean by "I think" is that I'm not receiving them as well as I did before and also, as videohead311 as stated in a previous comment, they will still be doing some work with it through tomorrow, but will be done by tomorrow. So, if you still can't receive it now, you can wait until tomorrow to see if you can get it then. Also, as far as I know, as I type this, WJDE is still not on the air on their channel. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

Today is the first time since the rescan that I have been able to receive WJFB without it cutting in and out. Thanks for keeping us updated. I live in the Lafayette, TN area.

I am also getting a good signal on WJFB now. As WJDE says the week of Dec. 2, I'm not worried about it. I hope it is back by Friday, although I don't watch it much after their channels changed.

I believe they are now on their main antenna but I do not believe they are at full power yet?

Nothing yet for me down in Hohenwald. Long time waiting

I did a re-scan around 11:45 PM Tuesday evening and I can finally receive WJFB, but it is weak and pixelated. It will be interesting to see if the signal improves on Wednesday when they are finished with their work. If it doesn't improve, I get their translator signal on 40.x just fine, with very good signal strength, so it will not be a big deal for me if I do not get a better signal on 44.x.

I ran a scan and i have a 4 bar signal on the channels 44.1 thru 44.7, however when I scanned I lost 58.4 dabl tv. i still get 58.1, 58.2, and 58.3, don't know why 58.4 won't come in. I live in Monroe county, Kentucky about a mile across the tennessee line.

WJFB is off of the air again today, Wednesday. Hopefully it will be back on later. I also noticed DABL has not been transmitting on channel 58.4 for the past couple of days. I still get 58.1-3.

I'm in the Tusculum area near Antioch and I'm getting about a 55% signal. If they are at full power now they need a new tower. It's not a very good signal being that they are transmitting at 950,000 watts.

I'm in Spring Hill and as of this morning (Thursday) still can't receive WJFB. However, I actually can see a weak signal (which I haven't been able to even get since this all started). Does anyone know if they are still doing work on their antenna or not yet at full power?
