Default Missing ABC

With my OTA (Over-the-Air Antenna) I am missing ABC. In the past NBC was the troublesome channel to get but now it's ABC. Anyone have an idea way?

I thought you were referring to the booze store. Is it possible your antenna got turned in the wind? Doesn't take much with a digital signal from 40-50 miles away.

One of the stations (WESH) is VHF not UHF like all of the other stations. If your OTA is just UHF, that may be the problem, also, WESH is located North of the other antennas, so if your antenna is very directional, it maybe missing this signal. I have two antennas that I tried to get OTA signals, found out the hard way that I am in a low spot, and there is a hill in Leesburg that is interfering with reception, I am goinf to see both antennas, amplifier, etc.
Good luck with your project.

The OP said he can't bring in ABC Channel 9, not NBC. NBC is the one that usually goes missing, but not in this case.

If the other Orlando based stations are coming in OK then I doubt it is an issue with your antenna. You might want to try running a "channel scan" on your TV to let it figure out again which channels it can receive.
