    WAVE 3 Louisville KY: New 1000 foot antenna and channel changes


    New antenna to be attached to WAVE 3 News broadcast tower ahead of FCC changes



    "FLOYDS KNOBS, Ind. (WAVE) - Crews climbed to a height of 1,000 feet and a helicopter swarmed overhead at the WAVE 3 News broadcast tower in Floyds Knobs, Ind., on Friday. It was part of an operation to replace the antenna and allow WAVE 3 News viewers to continue watching after changes mandated by the FCC.

    The Federal Communications Commission has required 900 stations to change channels by Oct. 18. Because the old antenna would not work for viewers to access the channel that WAVE 3 News has been assigned to, replacement of the transmitter and antenna was necessary.

    "Those who have maybe lost our signal for now will hopefully get it back by then,” said Jim Sears, WAVE 3 News Technology Director. “This may actually help since we're at a lower channel. Right now we're channel 47 and we'll go to 36.

    There goes another DX target... lost due to cochannel WQHS 36 at 25 miles. I've noticed many markets I used to DX will be completely non-DXable due to being now cochannel to locals after repacking.
