After all the digital channels moved earlier and I had to rescan, my Tivo detected 38-1 through 38-7, however, the channels don't come in. Are they still broadcasting? Using the signal meter I get 0% on 38-1, WTSJ-LD is what it is listed as.

I read somewhere that they were broadcasting from the PBS tower. If I tune to 10-1 I get a signal with a strength of 48.   Maybe the direction of my antenna needs to be tweaked a bit to get this lower power channel. Either that, or it isn't strong enough to reach 53022.

I'm not sure if this link will work, but it shows the distance for WTSJ as 0.0miles....

They need to build new transmitter facilities and went off the air around October 27th.  They filed with the FCC  to go silent for up to 6 months.  I asked for an update on their facebook page last week and they hope to be back on the air in January.
