Berniel,

WSBK-38 is now real channel 21. Have you rescanned your TV tuner? Is your antenna designed to receive the lower frequency channel? Regarding the signal "level" you used to receive, that's signal quality and not the signals' strength.

WSBK --- Digital: 21 UHF (Virtual: 38)

38.1: MyNetworkTV / CBS (alternate)
38.2: Heroes & Icons
38.3: Comet TV
38.4: Charge
38.5: Circle

thank you for solving this mystery. i rescanned many times but there is no signal. i think virtual 38 is still actual 39 on my tv. i'll update here later.

Are all other OTA channels still coming in as they were before WSBK went away? If you have rescanned and still have no picture, the next step it to raise your antenna and rescan, and/or lower your antenna and rescan or relocate your antenna at different heights and rescan until you get a picture. If that's not successful its time to try a different antenna and --- rescan.
