WNHC / WTNH / Ch. 6 / Ch. 8
First of all, I thank everyone for indulging me and clarifying my many
thoughts and questions on Connecticut area TV. I have a lot of memories
and such, but not a lot of data. It was very helpful--thanks.
Secondly, Martin Waters responded to my post on a possible WTNH/WNHC-TV
translator on Channel 6:

I hadn't realized there were allocation shifts in some of the smaller
markets in this period. But this is definitely not the period I was
referring to, especially since I'm not old enough to have been alive when
the allocations switched!
I would have remembered seeing WNHC-TV or WTNH programming on channel 6 in
the mid 1970s. There's always the possibility I'm mis-remembering this
(and I've proven my memory is definitely fallible... :-)
