Not yet, but I'd be happy to see other maps (besides the radar) again on LOT8s.
There's hopes for TWC to be good again

No sight of this on my IS2, or a few others I had friends check. Maybe it's a beta test of the maps?

Last IS1 SD Local was seen at 10:08am EST today. Thank you to all of the designers who engineered the system.

Hmm... That's Louisville's IS2, which means it's close...

EDIT: Frankfort's IS2 is the same, unless this is the return of "flavors" and it won't air at :38 past. I'll check at :48 and :18 but this looks to be a Louisville-centric beta test.

Anyone else not looking forward to "Dead of Winter: The Donnor Party"? Looks like a movie to me.....Not good TWC!!!!!! Hopefully we'll hear of more live hours soon! I have a couple of new OCMs over the last week so I hope that's a good sign.

Sadly, there's more reality shows to come before they restore live weather hours. Hopefully, this will be the last seasons for these shows:

Yeah I saw that already, thanks! It would be nice to know how much TWC had in development when they canceled Sam's AMHQ.  I understand them wanting to follow though on their projects but how much is left????

Back at the beginning of the month the Allentown IntelliStar 1 I was recording was finally replaced. I managed to tune in at the right time and I caught the very first LFs after the LDL first showed over national.
! No longer available

What I find amazing is the fact that an LF ran without anything more than the CC and radar data. Normally the IntelliStar 2 Jr. wouldn't even output the LF if that was the only data available.

Haven't posted this here yet, but I caught this glitch on my new IS2 Jr yesterday:

TWC IntelliSTAR 2 Jr Error- Astoria, OR- Dec. 8, 2015- 3:18PM PST


Gotta admit, that plain white background is fancy, even though the product slider on the bottom is impossible to read.  :lol:

They are live tonight until at least midnight, WU was extended an hour too but it was all "special coverage" in The Lab.
