    WEVD-LP Dover Off the Air?

    From DCRTV's Mailbag:

    Not local but nearby… I see that WEVD-LP has filed for another STA pending FCC frequency sales. That means pretty much that WMDT ABC 47 in Salisbury doesn’t want the Delaware over the air TV station anymore nor have they switched it to digital. Instead, they just want to sell it for cash for frequency space just like WMGM 40 in New Jersey. Their wikipedia page is rather interesting btw in how they’ve taken FOX 5 and WMAR 2 off of many Eastern Shore Cable systems. www.BaltoMedia.Net (7/6/15)

    Maybe WPVI doesn't want another ABC station on their turf (Dover is in the Philly DMA).

    That post proves that the mailer has no idea how the auction works. WEVD-LP is not auction eligible.

    Back to DCRTV's Mailbag:

    OC/Salisbury news: Marquee Broadcasting, owner of WMDT ABC 47/Salisbury got approved for a digital companion channel for it’s analog Dover LPTV channel 27 on channel 3 at 3kW. The interesting thing about this DTV station is that it’s further north in Delaware and will reach Wilmington, unlike WMDT ABC 47 or analog WEVD 27. I wonder what the folks at Philadelphia's WPVI ABC 6 and ABC TV think about this. Here’s the specs and signal contour… fccdata.org — BaltoMedia.Net (7/13/16)

    I would imagine WPVI would only seriously care if WMDT showed up on cable in Wilmington. Dover is only in the Philly market because Salisbury was historically a short market
