No, it definitely is VHF. It's in Florida, Wesh 2 on channel 11, 198 mhz.
My antenna is a Mediasonic HOMEWORX UHF / VHF (HW-27UV).
When I connect the antenna straight to the TV I only get the UHF channels.
When I run it through a UHF/VHF combiner (from the antenna to the VHF input on the combiner, and from the output to the TV), then I get the VHF channels (no uhf ofcourse).
Any ideas why I don't get VHF when it's connected straight to the TV?
That doesn't make sense. There must be another factor that is now unknown.
The only reason I can think of is that the UHF/VHF combiner is blocking strong interference that knocks out the weak WESH VHF real channel 11 .
Are you using an amplifier?
What UHF/VHF combiner are you using?

I'm in a typical Florida residential area with my house surrounded by tall pine trees on neighbor lots and mostly 1 story buildings in the area.
Your Mediasonic HOMEWORX UHF / VHF (HW-27UV) antenna doesn't have much gain for VHF channels. I think you will need an antenna with more VHF-High channel gain for reliable reception of WESH because of the trees to the NNW.
That is the same advice you were given on another forum in April, 2017, but I'm not allowed by the rules of this forum to give a link to another forum:
Since WESH is on VHF, you need an antenna that includes reliable, predictable VHF reception. All three of the antennas you cited are UHF antenna designs.
Where is your antenna mounted?
Since you don't want two antennas, that leaves a medium-large combo antenna as the most logical choice.
The antennas you chose are all UHF designs, they will not be expected to receive WESH. If you go that route, you'd need to add a second antenna just for WESH, one like our ClearStream 5. It can certainly be done, we've done it that way for years. The C5 is a compact antenna but the alternative, performance-wise, would be the traditional stick-style antenna that is long. These are the constraints that the physics of the VHF operating channel place on the size of the VHF antenna.
