Repack Update - WHTN 39 is Done

- Posted February 13th, 2020 at 4:39pm
Well, the repacking of WHTN 39 (rf 16) is now done. They just powered up earlier today. Now, we just have to wait on WZTV and WNAB. Also, WNPT 8 will be later this year, and WLLC 42 is sometime between now and July of next year. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

Thanks. On my Hdhomerun, middle of the day, I'm showing WHTN 60% signal strength and 0% signal quality and 0% symbol quality, which is only slightly better than I'll show from a frequency with no transmitted signal whatsoever. For instance, nearby RF15 shows 38% signal strength even though there is no signal on that frequency. On my LG tv, it does have enough symbol strength to indicate 16.1 on my screen, but only 26% signal strength, and 1% signal quality, and of course, no picture. This is from 61 miles and 263 degrees from my location. Interestingly, pre repack I could receive this signal probably 60% of the time.
