Almost since WSEE signed on with its digital station on 35-1 (DT16), sister station WICU would be added as a sub channel on 35-3. This was due to WICU’s very low powered digital signal then on DT 52. With the digital upgrade from analog 12 to digital 12, the station’s chief engineer John Wilkosz stated in an earlier PBRTV article that once all cable outlets and Dish Network were converted to receive the 12-1 signal, 35-3 would go away soon after. However, this could be a problem for those with outdoor UHF only antennas who will now need a combined UHF / VHF antenna in order to receive all of Erie’s digital stations.
