Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?

Heard that this morning also. They are advising those with Direct to change providers or get an antenna and pick KTLA off the air

Summer where have you been?

I knew about it and even called Directv the other day. They really don't care what their customers think.

I was bummed when I turn on the TV this morning and my news wasn't on. I'm pissed off and thinking about going to another provider.

I love the KTLA morning news and would suffer with out it. I am glad that Charter doesn't have the same problems as DirectTV does.

Yep...my favorite too! Tomorrow morning is going to suck without it. I'm going to give it a couple of weeks and then if it's not on then...bye bye

usualy they settle these at the last minute We don't get KTLA down here in our local pack but I wish we could. I'm still happier with direct then others I see.
Is Ch 5 available on the internet?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I miss my KTLA. But it's all business which means its all about money. We can't get cable and I know TOO many folks unhappy with Dish so I guess we're stuck ....or do what we do more often these days and pull it off the net! :-)

Ohiochad: I suggest the santa ana river trail, down from the crossing of 38 or up or down from Glass road. Easy but some up and down, pictures not grand canyon but nice local flora etc

I asked at the Barton Flats Visitor Center and find that the South Fork trail head is open. SGWA volunteers have worked on the trail to allow it to be opened. Bad news is that the Fish Creek and Lost Creek trails are not open and no future opening for these can be seen. There is a closure order for these areas.

google "spot-the-station" and sign up for emails or text messages. This is a NASA site and only alerts you for viewable passes.

Had a great flyover this morning too. Went from WNW to ESE. The only thing shining in the sky as it cruised over.
