I'm very interested to see what you folks in Savannah get tomorrow since there are TWO PBS stations in the Augusta, GA DMA.

One, WEBA, is from South Carolina and part of SCETV, and the other is WCES, a part of GPB. If the latter, it's the first Georgia DMA to receive GPB from DirecTV (or Dish Network), and possibly signals good things for those of you in Georgia with HD-LIL (lucky SO...)...

Guess: I suspect you will get the one from Georgia. If the SCETV one were available, Columbia wouldn't be getting PBS HD from Charlotte.

For clarity, Savannah is on Thursday and it's the WEBA station from Augusta

I won't be getting either (no SD-LIL or HD-LIL here as you might be able to guess from my signature), but you have a good point. As I said, this is possibly good news for folks in GA.

EDIT: Never mind... I just read Satelliteracer's post.

I still see Huntsville for later this month...most likely on the 23rd but that will be firmer in another week or so.

I don't suppose the Harrisburg DMA will be the lucky recipient of CW or PBS?

It's beyond annoying isn't it? I haven't bothered to check but of the top 20 markets Boston must have the least number of HD locals through D*.
