As of May 5th, 2018, the following stations have signed off:

WHNW-LD Gary, IN (RF 18)

WAAA-LP on RF 49 signed off years ago.

If W46EB was ever on, they're off the air.


WYCC Chicago (RF 21) This station is now channel sharing with WTTW on RF 47 (still maps to 20.1, & affiliates with Mhz Worldview)

WBBM-LD (RF 26) They shut it off, after getting better coverage on WMEU-CD on RF 32, by leasing bandwidth on this station (Mapped to 48.3 for CBS)

WSNS (RF 45) Now channel sharing with WMAQ-TV on RF 29 (still maps to 44.1 & 44.2)

WRJK-LD (RF 24) This station stopped broadcasting in analog 3 years ago, & maps to 22.1 on digital)
