The days of a “snowy” WNHO picture are numbered as the station converts to a new HD signal. The transmission site is located just east of Sherwood and will host both a new transmitter and antenna.
UPDATE (August 20): A tower crew is scheduled to install the antenna the week of August 26th. This date could move depending on the company’s timetable in completing other projects. The transmitter building has been installed and the state-of-the-art transmitter has been delivered to the site. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has notified us that the transmitter cannot be commissioned until late September or October due to a backlog of installations around the nation.
The FCC has mandated that over 1000 TV stations change frequencies within a three-year period. This has caused an avalanche of equipment orders and demand for tower crews that the industry is having difficulty meeting. Thank you for your patience as do everything within our power to convert WNHO to a new HD signal.
When the WNHO build-out is complete, all OTA viewers will need to rescan their TV set in order to receive the new signal. The channel lineup will appear as the following:
26.1 WNHO (Northwest Ohio Community Programming)
26.2 WTLW (Lima Christian TV)
26.3 WOSN (West Ohio Sports Network)
STAY TUNED FOR A RESCAN DAY SOMETIME THIS FALL!
