Not really related, but I have never thought WOAY had its transmitter in a good location--the tower WSWP is on seems like a much better location.

I actually thought WSWP was on Flat Top (near Winterplace Ski Resort on the Mercer/Raleigh County line), but I looked and it's ENE of Beckley. Is there ANY TV on Flat Top? I know WJLS-FM is on Flat Top.

To my knowledge, there is no TV on Flat Top.

Here's a coverage map for WJLS-FM: http://www.rabbitears.info/contour.p...Y&appid=291082

And here's what 1000 kW on channel 25 would look like from Flat Top: http://www.rabbitears.info/contour.php?appid=317&map=Y

WOAY Apparently Still Off the Air -

This is simply amazing, but sad. According to FB posts, ABC-affiliated WOAY in Oak Hill-Beckley is still off the air - for almost 2 weeks now. Think of all the lost revenue from Christmas advertising. No doubt, WVNS (CBS/FOX) and WVVA (NBC) have picked up some local news viewers.
