How do they get to have 2 channels, 10 and 29? Other stations don't get to do that.

29 is a low-power translator to cover nulls in the channel 10 signal in areas of south Lansing. A lot of full-power TV stations use translators use translators to cover nulls or fringe areas.


Shortwave is the ORIGINAL satellite radio.

Dumb question perhaps:
Why would WILX have signal issues in south Lansing? Is it due to RF overload from all the FM stations in the area?

I realize the Onondaga tower location and the FCC's absurdly weak VHF power levels probably don't help the cause. It's good that Gray took the initiative to address signal gaps.

Would not surprise me if RF 29 is eventually repurposed to house ATSC 3.0 transmission.

No it happened right on schedule. I was watching Perry Mason Friday night and exactly at midnight it switched to the GRIT channel and MeTV switched over to WILX 10.2 which was the previous H&I channel.

I see they dropped the Studio 10 show, that was at 4 pm. That does not happen much, a station dropping a local newscast.

When they lost all the lead on-air talent for Studio 10, the show was axed and they replaced it with short Studio 10 branded segments during other newscasts. At the time, they claimed it will return later this year. Here's that info:
