Something strange happened Sunday night. All of a sudden 36.02 and 36.03 appeared with the callsign WUPNW (or something along those lines). Did anyone else notice it? It looks like they were rebroadcasting 25.02 out of Indy.
The signal from WFFT-DT 36, about as powerful as a small appliance bulb, and with their antenna barely off the ground, was blown away by WUPW, analog channel 36 , Toledo, OH. The station transmits with almost 2 million watts from a 1200- foot tower. I've recently been seeing that station here in Indy quite often, and I'm 186 miles from their tower. This could continue to be a problem as long as WFFT-DT continues to broadcast with this low power.
I've never seen WFFT-DT nor WISE-DT 19 here in Indy. I have, however, received WTVG-DT 19, Toledo and WXMI-DT 19, Grand Rapids.
