A number of times over the winter when I was in
the MIT East Campus/Kendall Square area, I had
checked W242AA on my Insignia HD walkman-type
portable, and it was indeed broadcasting in HD.
The HD signal was so weak that even a few blocks
from the tower, I was only getting the HD icon
blinking, meaning it was detecting a HD signal,
but it was too weak to fully lock on to the HD.
It kept trying to load the HD signal, but failed.
At MIT I was in the directional "null", perhaps
if I had walked over and stood on the Longfellow
Bridge I may have been able to get it in full HD.
Since I couldn't get it to lock in to HD, I could
not tell whether there were any multicast channels.
I tried it again a few weeks ago, and W242AA seems
to be no longer in HD, there was no more blinking
HD icon, so I don't know what's up with it.
