If CKWS (Corus) decides to upgrade their two analogue stations in Eastern Ontario to ATSC 3.0 digital, here are their newly assigned channels.

Rob50312 has corrected me.

     Since WIVB's hardware license was sold and will be using WNLO's signal to broadcast, they must use WNLO's current tower and parameters.  Since Nexstar hasn't publicly stated what tower they will use, this tells me that would prefer to use their tower in Colden, but must seek FCC approval to do this. 

     Also, they must vacate the RF39 frequency no later than 6 months after they receive their ransom auction money.

                                                                                      Sorry for the misinfo.

Was speaking to an old WKBW engineer about this and he seems to feel that they will use the transmitter on the Island. If this information changes I'll let everyone know..

LPTV stations and TV translators that are displaced by the incentive auction should study last week’s Public Notice carefully, as it sets out various procedures for filing, and even mentions that the FCC will itself make available its “Channel Finder” software that was used to repack full-power stations in the incentive auction to help find new channels for displaced LPTV and translators. Displaced LPTV/TV translator stations can change sites to find an open channel – up to 48 kilometers for stations already operating digitally, but only 16.1 kilometers for stations still in analog.

The only WNY station this applies to is WNLB-LD Rochester .
