Wow, so even viewers in the Chapel Hill area are having trouble getting
the signal? And they're blaming it on a low-power Durham station? That
sounds like a bigger problem than they're letting on.
I heard this from my brother:
"I e-mailed them. They are upgrading their analog antenna to digital -
they have a digital one already, but the strength is not enough to reach
all their viewing areas (i.e. my house). Techie suggested better antenna
or waiting 90-120 days for project completion."
I sure hope it doesn't take three months to get my UNC-TV back!
