Hello, BigLou80; welcome to the forum.

Thank you for the link to your signal report.

Yes, WGGB and WGBY are strong enough to cause overload; you can't use a preamp.

WTIC is moving from real channel 31 to channel 34 during Phase 4 of FCC Repack, 6/22/2019 to 8/2/2019

It is possible that they are running at reduced power because of antenna work; they do have temporary authorization for that:

You could call the WTIC station engineer and ask him.

On a side note I'd be happy to hear anyone's thoughts on getting channel 10 listed on the report
What is the callsign, WTNH?

TVFool is using a defective database to generate reports. A report from rabbitears.info should have a more accurate list of channels:
