Another WRTN Update

- Posted June 18th, 2017 at 8:54am
Thanks to CompuPaul for the update, he got a response back from WRTN. In the e-mail he got, it says, "Yes. We got hit by lightning and it damaged both amplifiers. One is fixed and waiting on parts for the other so we are at 30% power. " So, there you have it. If you are like me and haven't been able to receive WRTN, then that is the reason why. Again, I would like to thank CompuPaul for this.

It will be good when WRTN gets back to full power. I can only receive it at night now. It is too weak now to watch it full time. However tonight the Luken channels have vanished. 6.7 has the Western channel instead of Retro TV while Jewerly TV (6.2) and Rev'n (6.5) are blank (no big deal for these channels). I don't know if he has satellite problems or if Luken has been dropped from WRTN. Ron

Actually, the reason the Luken Channels (RetroTV and Jewelry TV) have vanished is because the satellite that Luken used has failed. They are now on a new satellite. Now, it is up to WRTN to realign their satellite dish to the new one. I heard this happen to the affiliates in Phoenix. I am really hoping that this is the reason why RetroTV has been freezing up. Now that it is on a new satellite, maybe it won't freeze up.
