Trust me I have lived here nearly all my life, there is no Springfield, but there is a Springville.
When I said 'They', I meant WNYO 49, not all of the Grand Island stations.
What I meant to say ... WNYO swapped TX locations with WNLO.
Meaning WNLO used to be where WNYO is, and WNYO used to be where WNLO is today.

Back to status, WNYO is still off the air.

Earlier this morning something was lighting up Hauppauge signal monitor on rf 49. No lock and it's gone now.. Wonder if it was them or a distant stray signal.. Interesting

I e-mail Sinclair and they got back to me saying it was a power issue from the electric company and said the station should be back broadcasting by 7 pm tonite.so channel 49 should be back

They're back up, but it seems like there's a pulsing on the signal.. shoots up to 28 SNR and drops out. Maybe a warm up.

Same here now too; it seemed to straighten itself out shortly after I posted

Now that WNYO is back, has anyone else noticed reduced signal strength on WKBW?

WGRZ, WIVB and WNYO all have strong signal strengths whereas WKBW is much lower.

WKBW (since last week) will not even lock on one TV. Very low on others.

Pretty much the same as usual here, despite the cold and ominous looking sky; actually maybe a tad higher at this very moment (27.5 SWR, usually around 23-25 for me).

Anyone with normal reception of WBXZ (rf17) notice reduced strength or no signal altogether? Not even a blip for me in 2 days, normally stable reliable signal. Yesterday they said there were no issues, today a couple reports in their area of no signal..

I watched WBXZ-LP last night with no issues - however, I can see the tower from my house...

WBXZ confirms there's an issue, they're at reduced power. Hope to have it resolved around Saturday. Apparently my annoying inquiries alerted them to the problem.

Canadian channels will stay on Spectrum; "TBD" arrives in May - The Buffalo News

WUTV's 29.2 sub-channel will not be changing to "TBD" until May sometime...

I'd rather Sinclair launch Charge instead of TBD on WUTV.
