    Wonder if Ion has tried to get Channel 46 to give up those call letters.

    Actually, I assume they don't care, given the number of Ion affiliates that still have call letters containing "PX."

    Yeah, I think its areas with no local channel service at all SD or HD, and none announced.

    Likely corresponds to these DMAs from the transponder map "tan" shadings under the LiL Market List tab described as "No LiL Service No Service Date":

    Twin Falls, ID - DMA 705
    Alpena, MI - 517
    Bend, OR - 529
    Bowling Green, KY - 537
    Casper - Riverton, WY - 541
    Charlottesville, VA - 547
    Cheyenne, WY - Scottsbluff, NE - 549
    Glendive, MT - 585
    Grand Junction - Montrose, CO - 586
    Helena, MT - 599
    Lima, OH - 621
    North Platte, NE - 647
    Ottumwa, IA - Kirksville, MO - 652
    Presque Isle, ME - 663
    San Angelo, TX - 667
    Victoria, TX - 708

    HoTat2 is correct...

    Newshawk did an awesome job with updating the map... and it'll be nice to see three more locations filled in with blue very soon. :)

    Regarding the HD LiL "blue" areas though, be kinda of interesting to see the map with separate colors distinguishing the older markets with both MPEG-4 HD at 99/103 and MPEG-2 SD at 101/119, with the newer ones that are MPEG-4 only. :D

    But I wouldn't dare want to burden Newshawk with that additional task who's already done a great service with the map already. :)

    Really? Dent County is in the Springfield market. You should be getting their stations.

    Those 52 'MPEG4-Only' Markets are defined in the "LIL Market List" tab of the TPN MAP Excel. We also have many LIL Networks, like Net 692 - St. Joseph, MO - that are all MPEG4 except for a single imported PBS or CW still provided in MPEG2.

    Those 'tan' entries are indeed those 16 Markets with No Local Service at all. However, three of those markets are on the "HD Launch in 2012" list:

    Bend, OR
    Lima, OH
    Twin Falls, ID

    I have changed the wording in the "LIL Market List" tab so this coming week's TPN MAP posting will be more clear.

    Are Monterey HD locals now supposed to be active? Unless my visual acuity is lessening with age, I’m still receiving them in SD.
