    I was able to confirm the current programming data on KJYY-LD RF 29.

    26.1 1080i Telemundo
    26.2 480i SonLife
    26.3 480i ShopLC
    26.4 480i AceTV

    The only diginet dropped was Heartland.

    The lineup on KJWY-LD in Salem should be the same Both LPTV’s are dire need of upgrade.

    Telemundo Portland has moved from KPXG-TV to KJYY-LD. I’m not able to confirm it’s channel position. Due to the LPTV location and power levels. Telemundo moved due to the new diginet Newsy coming to all Scripp Stations.

    Telemundo will also be seen in Salem on KJWY-LD as. Too bad KUNP-LD is not able to get a signal around the Mid Valley.

    It was also mention on there website. Telemundo is looking for a signal upgrade in 2022. Which means at some point KJYY-LD will move to Skyline or Sylvan sites.

    As mention in another thread. I won’t be long until Mt Scott is no longer used as transmitting site. For Portland Radio and TV.

    I believe the station in question? Causing problems on KGW-TV RF 26. Was K26HS-D Tillimook a low power. Owned by Better Life TV. The station is transmitting from Mount Hebo on the coast. There low power signal was causing some interference issues towards the Salem area.

    It would be nice if KPTV could pipe in NFL Football. On one of KPDX subchannels 49-2 or 49-4. Coverage on VHF 12 doesn’t quite make the cut in Portland area. KPTV move to RF 21 will not occur until well into next year.

    Scripps/Inyo Broadcasting has begun to rollout. A second HD channel to many of there stations. KPXG 22.2 Bounce TV has been converted from 480i SD to 720p HD. Both HD Channels are around 5.0 mb

    I should also note that my TSReader Lite. Shows Telemundo on KPXG 22.7 has already been reconfigure. From a screen resolution of 528 x 480i. Now to a 720 X 480i with the rest of the streams. All remaining SD channels are around 1.3 to 1.8 mb

    LPTV owner Edge Spectrum Inc continues to files waivers with FCC. Under Tittle 47 USC 312(g), allowing them to have the majority of there LPTV stations. To remain silent for more than a year.

    Edge Spectrum is trying to implement ATSC 3.0 on all of its stations. And it would make no sense to build out. The a repacked station on it’s newly assigned RF channel in ATSC 1.0, only to have to spend more money to convert to ATSC 3.0 later on.

    Gray TV owned Circle and Raycom Sports. Are the two future diginet’s. I see them placing on KPTV or KPDX.

    UHF Television usage in Pacific Northwest. Was primarily used in two appellations by the FCC.

    The first, for full power UHF stations. That are still assigned to Yakima and Tri-Cities viewing areas. Which did not have a sole VHF signal. Does anyone remember the TV term UHF Island.

    The second for low powered translator stations. Which were assigned to UHF channels 70-83. All of these signals can still be found. On a lower UHF channel. In smaller communities from the Coast to Eastern Oregon.

    You can find that link on Rabbit Ears website.

    Mouse over and Drop down Listing. To show Historic Allotments Link

    And it will come up. To Historical Allotment Table. The default date is April 14, 1952.

    The rest is easy to figure out.

    KPXG-TV also put in STA for slightly lower power at 832kW. Not sure if KOPB-TV did the same thing or not. KOPB can go back to 32kW if needed. This is the same power level. They were assigned back in 2009.
