Found this interesting from the link above ..
all but one station in Milwaukee will change channels.[/i]
Context is important; based on the FCC enumeration, I read it as ... all but one of the four listed
will change channels. Meaning, other stations aren't changing channel frequencies, although they could certainly change virtual channel numbers. Let me know if I'm missing something, though.
Wasn't there some discussion about VHF not handling ATSC as well as UHF? I thought that was why they changed subchannel assignments a few years back on 10 & 36.
We've backtracked a long way since I walked into Flanner's years ago and saw Channel 10 (8 VHF) in its full bitrate glory, before NTSC was shut off. This site should probably be called "MilwaukeeATSC.com"
I'm glad that ghosting and snow are gone, but the TV biz has changed so much since ATSC was rolled out, I'll be surprised if more than a handful can sustain for another decade.
Are they going to pocket most of this cash and let the stations die a slow death?
I'm thinking a lot of past members will look at the money MPTV is getting and say, "Looks like they won't be needing my donations any more!"
