I'm seeing a site 63 show up in Unitrunker as a neighbor of sites 30, 44, 20, and 59, I'm sure other sites as well but those are the ones I can pick up from Elgin and a quick trip to the Forest Acres area yesterday.

Unitrunker is reporting the control channel as 853.8000 but that's listed in the database for the site 4 (Prosperity/Newberry) so my original thought is that they changed the site number for site 4 to site 63, however site 59 (Winnsboro) is still reporting site 4 as a neighbor with a control channel of 853.4750. Site 44 (Harbison) is no longer reporting site 4 as a neighbor. I can't receive site 4 or 63 out here in Elgin or from Downtown / Forest Acres. I have a feeling that a new site might be on the air in the south-western part of Fairfield County or southern Newberry county. Anyone over that way that can verify?

FCC database is showing 853.8000 licensed to Little Mountain. Maybe the Little Mountain site has been put back on the air as site 63.

I passed through Newberry on I-26 and verified site 4 on 853.475 and site 63 on 853.800. 853.475 is licensed for a site right outside of Newberry along I-26. I have updated the database accordingly.

Thanks for doing the research on this one. I was going to pack up the equipment and ride out that way this weekend. That saved me a 80 mile round trip.
