WCSH is having technically difficulties. Cable is OK but it's unavailable OTA and on satellite.

Thanks for the update, was wondering if something foo was going on as I haven't been able to watch Mad Money in a few days. Seems like a pretty serious problem to be down this long though!

It is curious that it is down that long. That suggests to me equipment failure with no spares on hand so they are waiting for them to be delivered. But I don't know.

Yeah someone seriously screwed up...granted cable has the bulk of viewers, but satellite and OTA have a decent number too...advertisers are not going to be happy.

WCSH claims it is a damaged cable some 400 feet up their tower.

Yikes. Damaged transmission line is probably one of the worst things that can happen to a station. Unless the station has a fully redundant transmission system, (extra transmitter/line/antenna) it's off until it's fixed.

Strange my signal level was fine until 2 days ago so not sure what to make of this post by WCSH, but as of right now it has dropped dramatically.

As of June 22, still no signal over in Central NH.

WCSH is, or at least WAS, on a backup antenna at reduced power while the damaged transmission line was repaired/replaced.

I'm noticing a stronger signal, although I can't say if it's back to prior levels, but here in Epping, NH, I'm able to once again watch WCSH.
