I did a re-scan today with my indoor antenna on the side of a
south/southwest facing hill in Somerville, and sure enough, it's
virtual channel 60.5 "WBTS", transmitting on RF channel 18,
along with WMFP channels virtual 62.1, 62.3, and 62.4 (there is
no longer a channel being mapped to virtual 62.2 at this time).

The signal I'm receiving is NOT from the WNEU (virtual Ch. 60)
transmitter facility in Goffstown, NH. Due to the hill rising up
behind where I live blocking signals from the north, I get no
on-air reception from NH at all. This is coming from the WMFP
facility on one of the towers out near Route 128 in the Newton/
Needham area (I think it's on FM-128 in Newton). I get it at the
maximum strength on my set, seven "bars".

I've never seen a virtual subchannel appearing without a virtual
main channel (on the same virtual channel) before, and never
saw a subchannel being mapped to a different virtual channel
than the other virtual channels on the same RF channel before.
