  • New LPTV in OKC KWRW-LD 34

    ** OKLAHOMA. Mild tropo enhancement around central OK at 0355 UT May
    24 leads to BAD signals on `open` RF channels: 14, 20, 21, 22, 31 --
    and decoding:

    RF 34, as 33-1 PSIP ID only HRTLND ! No call letters. Also:
    33-2, RTV
    33-4, Action
    33-5, Family
    33-6, Revival

    Heartland logo is a red heart with outline of a cowboy hat inside it.
    Where could that be? Usually with a little tropo I get Tulsa on RF34,

    Not very DX, but it`s low power, never before seen from OKC, about 75
    km away, KWRW-LD. This is confusing since OKC already has full-power
    KOCB on RF33, virtual 34. Found this recent press about it:

    ``Oklahoma City is Getting a New Free Over The Air TV Station - By
    Luke Bouma on April 27, 2023 in All News

    Today Digital Networks, LLC announced that it is launching KWRW-LD
    channel 33 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Now locals will be able to
    watch The Heartland Network, Retro TV, The Family Channel, Rev’n, and
    The Action Channel.

    “Our goal was to always have an owned and operated station not just in
    Tulsa, but Oklahoma City as well,” says Joel Wertman, President of
    Digital Networks, LLC and parent company Get After It Media. “We have
    no doubt our viewership in Oklahoma City will be strong, as we know
    viewers will love our variety of networks and programming.”

    Chief Engineer of Digital Networks, LLC Tim Hurley adds, “It’s
    exciting to see all of the planning come to fruition, as well as to
    know there is a lot more on the horizon this year for launches.”

    Here is a quick breakdown of each channel:

    The Heartland Network presents the broadest variety of true country
    music and lifestyle entertainment. From classic country out of the
    vaults of Music Row to the up-and-coming artists of today, The
    Heartland Network truly is The Heart of Country®. Programming includes
    Music City Tonight, CountryLine TV, Bluegrass Ridge, Country Fix,
    classic movies, and original program The Unseen World. The network
    also carries special event coverage through in-house produced series
    More Than the Music and Heartland Backstage.

    Retro TV is the first and one of the longest-running digital broadcast
    networks in the country, highlighting classic series and movies from
    way back when. Programming includes shows such as Doctor Who, Naked
    City, The Saint, Danger Man, One Step Beyond, and The Ray Bradbury
    Theater, as well as 1980’s pop culture hits 21 Jump Street, starring
    Johnny Depp and the critically acclaimed crime drama Wiseguy with Ken
    Wahl and Jonathan Banks. The network’s original program Dracula’s Kung
    Fu Theatre is a favorite among viewers, with two seasons now under the
    show’s belt. Retro TV is also the exclusive home to the iconic and
    groundbreaking daytime soap opera The Doctors which originally ran on
    NBC from 1963 – 1982.

    Rev’n is a car and motor enthusiast’s dream, with shows designed
    around all things that rev. Whether you have a passion for cars,
    trucks, boats, airplanes, or motorcycles, viewers will find the speed
    they need in series like My Classic Car, Sam’s Garage, The Curator’s
    Vault, Motorhead Garage, Legendary Motorcar, and Flying Through Time,
    this network keeps the motor running.

    The Action Channel is for daredevils and adventure seekers alike with
    extreme racing on Boundless, to strength you can’t even fathom on
    Strongman Champions League, head-to-head battles on OVW Wrestling,
    wild and heart-pounding situations on Operation Repo, the ever-popular
    EFC Premium Fights, and more.

    The Family Channel provides programming for everyone in the family.
    Viewers can relax and meal plan with cooking shows like Positively
    Paula with Paula Deen and Bama-Q or pick out their next family
    vacation destination with travel shows like Chasing Down Madison Brown
    and Road Trip Masters. Get DIY-friendly tips from Ready, Set,
    Renovate, or settle down as a family for educational programming like
    Underwater Safari and Pet Friends, and more! ``
