WLNY programming was broadcast on two frequencies, with towers in different locations.

The "main" stick was (and still is) out in Suffolk County. This transmitter covers Suffolk and southern Connecticut / Rhode Island. The "translator" was in Nassau County, and provided coverage to Nassau County and New York City.

When CBS bought WLNY, they had no need for the translator (or couldn't keep it, since they owned WCBS-DT), and sold it.

Yes. WLNY still broadcasts OTA (RF 47, Virtual 55), but the transmitter is out in Suffolk Country, and is difficult to impossible to receive in NYC, let alone anywhere north of town.

If you can pick up WMUN-CD (RF 45), then before the sale, you could have watched WLNY on that station. This was the "translator".

Anyone know what happened Sinovision English on WMBC (63.3)? It seems that this and some other channel 63 subchannels stopped broadcasting recently.
