Until recently, two of the Youngstown area TV stations were going to cease analog TV operations on the old analog shut off date of 2/17/09. Both WKBN and WYTV stated that they were going to pull the plug on their analog operations this month. With the new guidelines I stated in an earlier article, it appears that both stations will continue with their analog signals until June 12th according to filings made with the FCC. They will join with WFMJ in serving the Valley with both analog and digital signals a while longer. However, you’ll need a converter box to watch WNEO DT 45 in some areas where you cannot watch the station on their analog translator on channel 58. Maybe if the construction permit is approved by the FCC for WYTV to go from 50kw to 1,000kw, things could be completed by the new transition date.
