WNLO

Strange that WNLO would spent money for a new tower and not just stay on WNED tower or move to WIVBs tower which they own.

Nexstar got over $46 million to give up their channel, the cost of a tower, upgrading to NTSC 3.0 etc is peanuts in comparison.

They've also partnered with Sinclair for the transition to ATSC3.0

None of the stations that sold spectrum are "worse off", they all made out like bandits, including the "religious" begcasters who should never have been granted spectrum, IMHO.

WUTV has applied to move to old WIVB Tower

They request 800 kw but some directional.Antenna at 313m mark on tower.This is at top of the tower so reception will be similar to current WIVB.
