Antenna TV gone?

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Went to check the cottage today and did a new channel scan.WUPW and WMNT come across the lake a lot better now on the repack freq than they did on the old ones.

Noticed Ant TV and COZI on WMNT.This TV had color bars.Nice additions to my summer viewing.


WLLZ needs to bring Sreaming Scott to Morning's on 106.7

Did a rescan, and the WMNT subchannels are on the wrong channels, the descriptions are there, but for the wrong channels and my TV will not decode 48.2 but it will 36.4 or 36.6 - WTH is going on there?

Cozi seems to be gone from WMNT now, at least on Buckeye Broadband, channel 158 is now just a dark screen. AntennaTV is fortunately still there on cable channel 156.

There has been an insurance commercial just frozen an the OTA channel for a day which I think was Cozi.

That's unfortunate, as COZI TV is the most LGBTQ+ friendly of any of the diginets out there. WTOL for LGBTQ faces, COZI for LGBTQ+ programming. Hope it's not gone-gone.

Something's way off here. Not quite sure if WMNT just does not care, is a tax write-off, or if they are purposely trying to get away with murder.
If I owned the station and no longer care about its operation, I would FedEx the license to Washington for cancellation and sell the equipment on eBay. I could sell the station to new owners, though more likely I would sell only the license, as the equipment, programming and manpower are all in tatters.
If I were WMNT-LD, I would approach WLMB to do a subchannel swap.

WMNT would carry WLMB on its relatively robust UHF channel, which increased its coverage awhile back, adding Toledo to its indoor-antenna coverage area, while WLMB would carry WMNT as a subcarrier, expanding its coverage greatly.

Possible fly in the ointment would be if WLMB's management were to object to being aligned to a secular station.

Interesting prospect; dead dog Channel 5 (WLMB 40) was a cheaper way to go with VHF-LOW band, but has crappy coverage, 48 (WMNT/36) is surprising decent, if they just had an engineer worth a sheet - so what's up with the future of Antenna TV and COZI, the two subchannels worth saving? I wonder how much I could get the license for WMNT for, assuming I can keep it's current transmitter and antenna. They aren't on the overloaded tower on Westwood Avenue anymore, are they?

No, they are on top of the green "skyscraper" known as the 5/3 building. Right across the street from WTOL, and kitty corner from that God awful "City Candy" statue.

I see that WLMB would have nothing to do with "Satanic" programming on the other subchannels. Will & Grace would be the first "sin" of WMNT. And since WLMB lives with 1961 values, Gimme a Break and Jeffersons would be sacrilege and not allowed in or with white religion. Forget Samantha Stevens herself, or the gay guy she was married to. As for Judge shows during the day, gay content on them would also be a sin, since SCOTUS includes "alternative lifestyles" and LGBTQAI programming is part of the norm.

Yeah, not gonna happen. WLMB certainly would reject the notion

That, plus the "fact" that only God can judge, and WLMB does not want any mortal judges (other than His "representatives", a.k.a "televangelists") on their channel.

Kinda. Mike Brady (Robert Reed) did not fit the bill being LGBTQAI, before it was LGBTQAI, yet was still on WLMB for years. Not sure how. If WLMB kept that open minded stance of years ago, they could morph with any station and any diginet. Now they are hypocrites. Doing God's duty, which should not be humanly done.

WLMB's transmitter has been and still is in Lenawee County about 3 miles east of M-52, about 30 miles WNW of downtown Toledo.

It does have a moderate coverage area - for those with an triband outdoor antenna.

If the FCC set the power limit to 30kW, it would be far more practical.

When TV was analog, maximum power had been 100kW at 1000' above average terrain.

Note that WLMB has a tower about half the height limit.

Also notable is that most local advertisements on WLMB are for advertisers well west of Toledo.

Hmmmm. I'm told Cozi TV is now GetTV on 48.4. I liked Cozi. But good news- Cozi is now a streamed channel on IPTV platforms, along with Comet and Buzzr.

Wondering if WMNT will bring back "THISTV." THISTV recently changed their channel info for Toledo, once again listing "Buckeye Broadband" Toledo channel 157. Before last week, when I did a Toledo zip code search on THISTV.com it only listed WMNT 48.3 and sometimes WDIV 4.2, depending on which zip code I used. Buckeye Broadband isn't showing THISTV or GET in Toledo, only the main WMNT channel and AntennaTV.
