Schenectady Channel 6 TV Station Turns Off FM Simulcast


CBS affiliate WRGB(TV) in Schenectady, broadcasting on Channel 6, has turned off its analog simulcast on 87.9 MHz.

That's because the station doesn't have Federal Communications Commission authorization to transmit an analog signal — only digital.

"We are reviewing our options and I apologize for any inconvenience to our audience," says GM Robert Furlong in a message on the station's Web site. "Thank you again to all of our viewers for their patience as we work through our digital issues."

WRGB broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on VHF Channel 6 from a transmitter northwest of New Salem.

If the Consumer Electronics Association was on the ball they would encourage their members who make portable radios to add DTV audio reception to their products. Or perhaps HD Radio channels should add deive audio services for local TV channels to their additional program streams.

Sheesh, I typed deive instead of deive where did it go? Anyway that should have read: If the Consumer Electronics Association was on the ball they would encourage their members who make portable radios to add DTV audio reception to their products. Or perhaps HD Radio channels should add deive audio services for local TV channels to their additional program streams.

This website does have the same problem that RadioWorld has... You can not type S-c-r-i-p-t or C-a-s-t and have it show up. Example: B-r-o-a-d-c-a-s-t comes through as broad.
