    ...WCZU-LD 39 Bowling Green, KY. 120 mi. It's running, "Antenna TV" as I type.

    I've been reading about this one for a long time. Nice to, finally, see it on the air.

    Yeah we have had Antenna TV since 1/1/11 on WSFL 39-3. Just like old times, no logo bug on screen (their policy), however because of added commercial time, they do butcher the dialogue to fit in the normal running time. "Mr. Ed" reruns speed up the ending credits and play the original instrumental theme that was only used for the first 7 episodes. But all in all, it was surely a welcome sight. And now in Miami area we also have MeTV, Cozi TV & Get TV. No RTV yet, but they aren't doing well, as far as I know.

    Our local outlet for Antenna TV is WPSD 32/6 Paducah, KY. Antenna TV runs on 6-3.

    Seems there's been a real proliferation, over the past few years, of new networks popping up and running 50s / 60s TV. Yesterday I noticed WMYO 51/58 Salem, IN. (Louisville, KY) has Cozi TV on channel 58-3.

    You're not imaging it. Retro dot-networks are big business today.

    MeTV is the only such network in Fort Myers so far (I'm watching the Brady Bunch right now), which I didn't expect to be the case five years after the digital transition. Other markets our size have more variety. I mean, as a DXer I don't want a bunch more locals, but the locals I already have could easily make room for these subchannels. And then I'd have more to watch when not DXing.

    We have Me TV, and Cozi. The programs are fun to watch, speaking as a "youngster". Unfortunately, the ad breaks are downright morbid: Something like "funeral costs are over 8,000 dollars", "do you need a hearing aid?", "If you have died from bad medications, you can sue by calling our law firm" , and the ever-popular "I've fallen and can't get up!" I know it's a demographic thing, but, uhg!
