Ahhh, the joys of remapping! P=)
Yes, “NBCBoston” is sent to WMFPʼs RF-Ch.18.5 and remapped to
Vir-Ch.60.5, not 62.5—unlike most stations that offset the
remapping (e.g., Vir-Ch.##.1 = RF-Ch.##.3), WMFP remaps
RF-Ch.##.N to Vir-Ch.##.N—at WMFP:62ʼs xmtr in Newton, not
WNEU:60ʼs (RF-Ch.34) xmtr up in NH.
Upon further observation and reflection since my last post, given
that some to most secondary stations screen ID—not the legal, TOH
ID, but the PSIP Ch. ID—as the network, not the CALLs (e.g.,
“Ch.7-2, This-TV”), forget any pretext about promoting WBTS-LD or
WNEU....Except for the primary station (if FCC required), just
use the hostʼs virtual channel number and “NBC” or “NBCBos”:
“Ch.8-1, NBCBos” (or “Ch.8-1, WBTS-LD”), “Ch.60-2, NBCBos” and
At least until the dust settles with the auctions, quiet period
and channel reassignments and NBC decides what it wants to own
here in the long term.
