Hopefully they will be transmitting soon. I really don't want to repoint/change my rooftop antenna - if I have to - when there is snow on the roof.
Taken from fcc.gov website on an application dated 09/24/2008 granting an extension on the construction permit that had expired on 08/18/2008.
"The antenna and transmission lines are scheduled to be installed at the new site on September 15, 2008, and the transmitter is scheduled to arrive between the last week of September and the first week of October. It is anticipated that KTTW-DT will be ready for operation by the middle of October.
Since grant of the Permit, Independent has worked diligently to construct the facilities at the new site, but requires an additional two months to complete construction. Although the station is expected to be operational by mid-October, out of an abundance of caution, Independent requests that the expiration of the Permit be extended until the end date of the transition, February 17, 2009."
