    Default WUHD 53 Charlotte, NC HDTV experimental broadcasts from 1994


    I have been posting on other sites like AVS as satpro and satelliteguys as r10fret for many years, I also have contributed to the rabbitears site.

    I was recently converting my old VHS tapes to DVD and came across a section of one of the tapes from the evening of March 8, 1994 or early morning of March 9, 1994
    I arrived at that date based on the recordings on either side of the recording of WUHD 53 experimental HD station in Charlotte, NC. While researching I came across this website
    and specifically this page here post 244 which the site will not allow me to reply to.

    While searching for info on WUHD I came across the following for the related station WWHD 6 but could locate no record for WUHD 53.

    Anyway back in 1994 I was located in SC and recorded WUHD 53 Charlotte for 2 minutes and 21 seconds of color bars. I would like to post the screen shots here but the site won't allow me to attach them here. I would also like to know if anyone has any related links to the info for WUHD besides the ones above.

    I'm Raymie, who posted the original post you referenced. When I saw the WWHD/WUHD stuff in the mid-90s VUDs, I was kind of stunned because it was a chapter of TV history I'd never heard of.

    The WWHD/WUHD combo was mounted on the old WPCQ-36 tower which they moved from in 1987 in order to drastically improve coverage.

    I just found WUHD stuff in the FCC under DWUHD, so the license was actually deleted unlike WWHD. Search filing number BPEXT-19920630KE. Unfortunately next to no data remains.

    I'd love to see your video — perhaps you could upload it to YouTube? If you want to upload screenshots, an image hoster like may be of use to you.

    Also, another thanks to Eric Voytko back then for capturing the ID and sending it into the VUD. We wouldn't have that image without him, Photo News and the good VUD people of the day.
