WCNY is required by the FCC to make changes to our transmission antenna’s and broadcast facility. As part of this ongoing process, a new TV antenna is planned to be installed on our tower on October 18 (contingent on good weather) & expected to be fully operational the first week of November. As we prep the tower, we are operating off a backup antenna. At times we have to turn it off and interrupt TV programming, to ensure the safety of the personnel climbing up and down the towers. On the night of Oct 3rd, however the backup antenna transmission was disrupted at 9 pm due to the failure of electronic components, causing WCNY TV channels to go off air. After trouble shooting and repairs through the night, the antenna & WCNY channels were returned to air at 1am. We apologize for the disruptions and continue to focus on getting the new antenna operational. These disruptions have no effect on cable and satellite viewing.
