Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 3rd May 2002:
WQED 13 Pittsburgh, PA
DirecTV 13/947 Dish 8136
Late Sat Mid EDT Black Orchid pt 2 of 2
At press time, it was unknown if WQEX 16 would be back on the air by the time of the Doctor Who broadcast. WQEX 16 is off the air while a new transmitter is put up which can broadcast both WQED-DT and WQEX-DT, when those digital channels launch. Satellite subscribers don't have WQEX, cable subscribers are having WQED substituted for WQEX, and most people with antennas can pull in WQED, so few people are noticing the absence of WQEX. For the few Pittsburgh area people who can only see WQEX, hope the new antenna gets put up soon.
