I remember back in the late 90s, early 2000s, they always had a black screen showing "no signal". This went on for hours. Channel 48 was supposed to be our local UPN affiliate. However, UPN on half of the days was missing. Then around that point the FCC forced the owners to sell to Cornerstone Church. Cornerstone Church did nothing for the quality of the station. By the way, the sale price was $1. That alone tells you something.
...along with the fact that Buckeye Cablesystem was in no hurry to drop then-UPN outlet WKBD.

well, i just checked WMYD out on the FCC's page... they're running at 931 kW (out of a possible 1000 kW) at 324 meters (1063 feet) so.. yeah. not much to really gain power-wise for them...

With almost the max power, many in Toledo do not get TV 20, unless they have an outdoor antenna. The signal is just not strong enough to go thru walls, especially brick.
