WLNS-TV channel sharing postponed again

Post by statmanmi » Mon Apr 02, 2018 5:40 pm

July 15, 2018 new deadline: WLNS-TV encoded into WLAJ

(I posted this on AVS Forum last week, but perhaps some audience here wouldn't have seen it there....)


Hi, I've happened across yet another approved extension of the channel sharing implementation date (now to July 15, 2018) for WLNS-TV to be combined into WLAJ's signal:

https://publicfiles.fcc.gov/api/manager ... 3006af.pdf

Change is imminent, but apparently can be fraught with delays and encoder problems.


Note that WLAJ's Construction Permit Modification request from November 2017 to transmit from the WLNS-TV tower (that has the abandoned analog 6 transmitter atop it) as part of their repack effort is still Pending:

Enjoy! -- Statmanmi

I sure hope that transmitter isn't up there, whatta mess it would make descending.
WLNS has two antennas at the top of that stick, a V and a U.

9/18/2016 was the last post on AVS about the Lansing market until yours.
I had thought it was no longer a viable information source, despite conversations being so much more civil there.
Can you keep us posted if anything else develops?
Thanks!

BTW, it has not been postponed, the date was set months ago.
You will start seeing crawls and PSA's very soon.
IF you can receive WLAJ, then you should be just fine.
IF you cannot receive WLAJ, best call the Antenna Men, as you will not see WLNS either.
