Welcome to the forum, pbyers

Yes, WQED is missing from TVFool reports because there are errors in the database used to generate reports as a result of many repack changes. I doubt that TVFool will make corrections because they have a small staff.

Here is a report for Pittsburgh with WQED missing:

This report from rabbitears.info shows WQED:

This shows the repack changes for the Pittsburgh DMA. Note that WQED will move to VHF-Low channel 2, which requires an antenna with large elements. There is a high noise level on VHF-Low from electrical interference, which will create a reception problem for some viewers.

Most of the changes will be during Phase 4:
Testing Begins: 6/22/2019 Phase Ends: 8/2/2019
