Normally, when I get a phone call on this, to try and lighten the mood, I tell said caller that this is a major upgrade for the radar, and we think the 1980's look of it is rather retro and we plan on running with this look. Some people get rather ticked about it, so I stopped with that story before they show up at the station! (Not that I'm not dead serious on getting it fixed, I am: but some folks out there (not pointing at you Steve) watch that channel constantly and are very unhappy about it.)
Steve: the radar has been down for quite some time now sadly (long, long, LONG story behind this) and is currently being evaluated at the manufacturer. To get something up on 15.2, we've taken an inbound feed from our provider of national weather information and put it up on the air.
Once the repairs are made (I hope by the end of next week) we'll get a crew in to take it back up the radar tower.
