There is no Weatherscan HD, and AFAIK no plans have been made yet.

Then why do some cable systems have 2 digital WeatherScan channels?

I never heard of headends having two Weatherscans from different locations. For a few months though in 2004 and again in 2007, Weatherscan here was on two channels (119, 120), but they were both from the same location.

Same here, I have Weatherscan on 19 and 116, though 116 has no audio.

May i mention that there wont be a HD scan unit for a long long long long time. Cable headends are stubborn enough now just adding major network HD channels. They cant afford the bandwidth for it.

I remember when Irving had 2 WxScan channels. One on 95 and another one on 99. This was probably due to the change over from 95 to 99 or the amount of interference on that channel.....

If you're going to have steam coming out of your ears, could you please put that steam to good use and melt the snow from my front porch?  Thank you in advance.   :brr: :snow:
