We shall see how that translates into reception for us OTA folks! Hopefully for the better!
A couple of things.
First, the on air PSA mentioned nothing about March being when the transition would occur.
That information was only on the station's website. I'm sure in watching the PSA, many people
thought the change was imminent. Not very responsible, and not very good communications.
Second, concerning the new signal.
Of course, it depends on where you live.
It also depends if/when the host channel, WNJU moves from its current location on the upper
UHF antenna to the lower one. The lower one is planned to be directional unlike the current
antenna being used.
I live on the Upper Eastside and WNJU's signal strength actually went down compared to ESB.
Those living near 1WTC are supposed to receive a stronger signal if the move to the lower
antenna takes place.
Lots of variables.
