UPDATE: For most of our over-the-air viewers, the installation of Local 22/44’s new antenna has resulted in a stronger, crisper signal.
Our chief engineer, Dave Turner, says the antenna went to full-power status shortly before 7:00 p.m. Saturday.
The Federal Communications Commission has forced WVNY, WFFF and hundreds of other television stations nationwide to change frequencies in order to free up more of the airwaves for wireless broadband internet and other uses. The FCC has been calling this initiative the Repack Program.
After 5 weeks of broadcasting on temporary antennas, Local 22 (WVNY) and Local 44 (WFFF) are now on the final top mounted antennas at their new frequencies and at higher power. If you lost the over-the-air signal you should be able to receive it now if you rescan your TV receiver.
If you are still having issues with the WVNY or WFFF please contact our engineering department.
