Re: Baltimore WBAL Channel Repack

@djp952: The signal strength for both WBAL and WJZ is ~80% but signal quality differs greatly being 80% for WJZ and 60% for WBAL. Symbol quality for WJZ is 100% continuously. WMAR is fantastic: signal strength is 94% and signal and symbol quality are both solid 100%. I would be curious to hear if yo...

Re: Baltimore WBAL Channel Repack

Thank you for the responses. I was aware that the station is not yet broadcasting at full power and I expected signal degradation and marginal reception. I am used to Washington DC stations coming in weak and drop out under some weather conditions due to distance twice as far from my house as Baltim...

Baltimore WBAL Channel Repack

Yesterday WJZ and WBAL stations in Baltimore changes channels as part of the FCC Channel Repack Phase 10. I rescanned my channels and while I can pull in WJZ on virtual channel 13.1 (physical channel 11) just fine, I get absolutely nothing for WBAL virtual channel 11.1 (physical channel 12). When I ...
