Rabbitears has bad information on the Utah stations.

KUTV is not switching on the 15th, but the 17th at 1pm with all the other stations that are sticking with the original date.

I notified the people in charge at KUTV to let the Rabbitears folks know of their error.

RabbitEars is updated based on FCC information. If there is a date there it came from a FCC filing.

KUTV DT CBS 02 34 34 NSO 02/15/09 Four Points

NSO means Trip got the info from a notice of silent operation. The FCC entered a whole bunch of those a couple of weeks ago (before the date change legislation was introduced). It would be an FCC error.

Trip is relying on the FCC and not on personal reports. The big question is in what week the station is going off the air more than the exact day. Close enough for government sourced work. :)
