Just a heads-up for antenna users- plan to rescan your TV tuners on October 18th because several local stations are switching frequencies that day.

Along with WISN 12 and Justice Milwaukee, WVTV, WDJT, WPXE, WITI and WTMJ will also move to new frequencies on October 18th:

Please pass this news on to your friends who also use antennas. :)

I was looking for a repack chart showing new & current RF channels, and found it at https://www.rabbitears.info/repackchannels.php?
Milwaukee is market #41 on their list.

Seems to me, the new channels showing up as "0" will be virtual subchannels on one of the listed new RF channels.  I know that list is out there somewhere. 

You cannot see attachments on this board.

Yup,   all the "0" stations are stations that took place in the spectrum auction

Has anyone heard what time on the 18th the channels will switch?

IE: Witi at 7am, TMJ at noon, etc.

Or should I just tell the wife to stay on Netflix til I get home from work? ;-)

I'd recommend telling her to stay on Netflix.   If I had to venture a guess,  I'd say they would probably do the switch overnight, so a re-scan in the morning would probably be good

The stations must have been really busy overnight since all the old channels were not there when I got up this morning.

Yes, I am an early riser....

I will post my results of new channels, improved signal strength, etc. in the other thread about the channel repack.

But so far, so good.
