WYIN (PBS for Gary/Merrillville/Northwest Indiana) responded to my email inquiry with this info: since they requested a change in their license, FCC approval is again required. However, the transmitter has arrived and is being tested - the antenna is being installed, but operation is probably "a couple of months away." At the same Cedar Lake location (ground elev. 725') a new 1535' antenna for WYIN analog Ch. 56 is being installed, and power will be increased to the 5000kw maximum (from present 1350kw and 1004' onsite antenna) "within a few weeks." So many of us in Chicagoland who have not been receiving WYIN will have a shot at the analog signal soon, but DT17 will be delayed a bit longer.
