Anyone know what is going on with Channel 22. They are not coming in down in Salem today.
Ah Ha, that would definitely explain it. I have lost KGW while they are upgrading the antenna and transmitter. Way to go Master of Disaster!
I agree. I just did a rescan and I am getting three signals of 49.1 and 49.3 but nothing for 49.2 or 49.4. I figure if I am getting the other 49 signals I should get .2 and .4, they must have turned them off at the transmitter.
I noticed that KPDX has turned off 49.2 (Court) and 49.4 (Grit). Must be some changes in the works.
KGW and KOPB (8 and 10) must be at reduced power. I have heard from a few people in Salem that they cannot receive those channels anymore. They must be getting ready to switch to new channels soon.
Is KGW still on lower power. I have gained most of my channels back except for 8.1-8.4 and 42.and 42.2. I appreciate your help.
Have there been any recent changes in TV broadcasting. I seem to have lost 4 channels overnight. 8, 10, 20 and 49 all have a much weaker signal and my TV is not picking them up. They all were working Monday.
Interesting article in the Salem Reporter about the origins of 1490 in Salem.
I am so sorry to hear this news. Mike was a great person! I worked for him in the early 90’s when we took KYKN from country to news/talk. Rest in peace Mike and enjoy your reunion with Pat.
SagamoreHill has been working to get KJWY-LD in Salem on the air. I recently spoke with the engineer and they need to make some last minute adjustments. It sounded like they would have 6 diginets.
KWVT 17-1 in Salem carries Youtoo and rebroadcasts it across their other towers.
KSLM 27.1 used to carry RTV, but dropped it several years ago for AMG-TV. According to an earlier post, KJWY-LD in Salem is going to be affiliated with a cluster of networks https://www.getafteritmedia.com/
and one of them is RTV. They may pick it up, however I don’t believe the station is broadcasting yet. I noticed that channel 20 KOXI isn’t on Locast.
So can anyone in the Salem area pick up KJWY-LD. As mentioned in the previous post, I am about 3 -4 miles SE of the tower in Eola Hills, and the longley-rice map says I should pick it up with an indoor antenna. I have an outdoor one. I also notice the station isn’t listed yet on the website shown above and rabbit ears still shows it broadcasting religious networks. I am curious if it is actually broadcasting yet. I called Sagamorehill in NY and they claim is is on the air, but were surprised that I couldn’t receive it. Ther were going to call engineering to find out what is going on and supposed to get back to me and haven’t yet.
Have they turned on the transmitter? I live about 3 miles SE from the KJWY-LD Transmitter and I am not receiving anything yet.
I can’t receive KOXI-CD in Salem, so Comcast my carry NBCLX since they are owned by the same parent company. According to Rabbitears, KOXI-CD has two translators (KORK-CD and KKEI-CD), but they are all on Skyline, wouldn’t those translators be more effective if they were in different locations to increase coverage? Chehalem Mountain and Eola Hills would really increase their reach.
