I've never checked out Ch. 99 in this area (Dallas/Ft. Worth) but was fascinated when I did.
There are over 22 different cities that have their own channel and some of those have up to 8 different options (Dallas). They run the gamet from ISDs to church channels. Some are functioning just fine, some are off the air, some have no audio, some are showing old cowboy shows.
It's like the wild wild west!
Skeeter - That is most likely how AT&T has the PEG's set up in most areas. Instread of having a dedicated channel in each locale, AT&T has dumped all PEG's in a state or region. There are likewise TONS of PEG's for my perusal. I live in Indianapols. I really really do not need to watch Library proceedings from Bedford, 70 miles away.
Channel 99 can't be recorded. Some cities say that how AT&T is doing this is not legal but I really have no idea. Our local PEG (Indy) is on Comcast on channel 16, which is such a low # that it caught folks tuning by. You have to WANT to go to the PEG's on UV.
Don: Channel 99 is not actually a channel. It is an app (like an application) and is assigned to 99. That is probably why the Tech's said that there was no channel 99.
WB6OZZ? KC9KDY! QSL?
You're right...I should not have use the word 'channel'. All 22 are there on Ch. 99.
