I think some of these PBS stations have a valid case. Some PBS stations were put on a CONUS slot while others were put on the side sats. If the ones that are on a CONUS slot now were on the side sats and those currently on the side sats were on a CONUS slot the other PBS stations would complain too.

A few of the PBS stations are on the side sats with out any logical reason. For instance WTVI Charlotte is at 61.5, but on 119 if you are in Charlotte you don't get your local PBS you get WUNC (in lew of WUNG Concord 30 miles from Charlotte). WPBA Atlanta is on 61.5 whereas WGTV Athens is on 119. The Atlanta PBS station gets shoved on 61.5 and a PBS station licensed 50 miles away gets on 119. In Greenville/Asheville WUNC (which has a station in Asheville) gets on 119, but those in the market have to get a second dish to get SCETV (which has a station in Greenville).
