Needham antenna work?

Tue Aug 21 09:42:34 EDT 2012

See the latest issue of Scott Fybush's NERW (North East Radio Watch) at AFAIK, no stations are off the air but Scott mentioned that,
until the work is complete, some others (besides WGBH-TV, which has been at
reduced power since the problems arose) may have to operate at reduced power
from time to time--to prevent overexposure of the tower workers to microwave

I have seen no reports of any plans to provide a permanent backup to the
"Channel 4" tower to prevent a repetition of this outage. The Candelabra has
been mentioned as a permanent backup site, but the costs would be huge.
Since the percentage of viewers in the market who receive over-the-air
signals is so small, the broadcasters may have decided to pretend that there
is no problem.
