WSTM TV Syracuse

The weather was hot today and there was tropo in the air so I did a scan for digital TV signals. This yielded one (or three, depending on how you count them) new digital TV station for the log. There were three new channels, but all were subchannels of the same station:
  • WSTM-TV, Syracuse, NY, digital channel 3-1 (RF channel 24, 530-536 MHz) at 1435-1448 UTC. NBC Meet the Press. Ads. ID for WSTM. Excellent signal with occasional, infrequent pixellation and breakup.
  • WSTQ, Syracuse, NY, digital channel 3-2 (RF channel 24, 530-536 MHz) at 1448-1452 UTC. Rebroadcast of WSTQ 14 (analog) LP signal on WSTM. Infomercial from UsedCarKing.com with car ads for Chittenango, Cortland, and Cicero, NY. 
  • CNY Central, Syracuse, NY, digital channel 3-3 (RF channel 24, 530-536 MHz) at 1452-1510 UTC. Weather conditions and forecasts for central NY state.
This is the 39th unique digital station logged in Toronto. The count of digital subchannels is now 62.
