    To clarify, the DTV converters hooked up to both Sylvanias are set to letterbox mode, so the underscan effect mentioned that occurs with older HD sets also happens with 4:3 letterboxing on SDTV sets not capable of scanning the entire picture.

    No updated ticker on this morning's broadcast; in fact, KOCO did not include a news ticker at all. We'll see if they switch to the 2.0 ticker in the coming days, but if it's a no show for most of the week, I'll email the station to mention it.

    It appears to be a designated icon to denote severe weather days. KOCO now uses it on its "5 + 5-Day Forecast," in addition to highlighting the day panels when severe weather is forecast to occur within Oklahoma as they have done since it switched the extended forecast to a 10-day format. There appears to be a similar yellow icon without a circle to denote other hazardous weather days with no expected severe weather.

    KOCO has used that alert graphic for a couple of years now, but only on its MeTV subchannel for some reason (the Oklahoma state map it uses, though, is shown at the bottom of the screen instead of bordering the bar). The station still uses its eight-year-old map- and text-only alert graphic on its main channel.

    So, that just leaves KMBC, KHBS/KHOG, and WMUR.

    How long has WTAE been using production music for their news open?

    I always thought that was a part of the Strive package. Guess I was wrong...

    Now it only leaves KMBC and KHBS/KHOG (I anticipate they'll get the new graphics next week).

    Man, you'd think WMUR was the red-headed stepchild in Hearst's stations...

    About half of each of their signals overlap according to RabbitEars.info. Plus both stations are carried on all systems together as WMUR is in the Boston DMA.

    Huh. I've always figured WMUR isn't carried on cable systems south of the I-93/I-495 junction. But you're saying it's on cable systems in Boston and south of Boston?

    so basically if you lived in a town outside the 2 with a large roof antenna, you get both ABC's.

    Provided it’s a VHF and UHF antennna you have a strong chance. Of course terrain affects coverage.
