WJFB New Information

- Posted October 6th, 2019 at 10:49pm
I'm sorry for not posting this sooner, but I got a reply back the other week from a contact with WJFB. He said, "We are running on a lower power backup transmitter until we finish installing the new transmitter." So, my guess is that they will be like this until Oct. 18th after WTVF vacates channel 25, where WJFB will be changing their channel to. That is all the news I have for you right now. Until then, see ya later.

Do you know if the Heartland network that was on 42.4 has stopped broadcasting because it's been nothing but a test pattern for like a month or more?

I haven't heard anything. I just checked their website, and there's nothing there. The website is gone. Also, sister network, RetroTV's website is gone as well. I don't know if parent company, Luken Communications, has finally went bankrupt or out of business or what. I haven't seen any news about it. I will try and see into it.

Luken communications site is still up and running although the links to those 2 channels are not so it may be just those channels

Heartland is playing (all be it a bit pixelated and glitchy) on 6-7. 6-2, which has been RetroTV is showing a black screen, but this is nothing new. 6 has always had problems with satellite alignment, equipment, etc. for RetroTV.

RetroTV has been that way all week. The Luken website still shows RetroTV as of their channels although if you click on it's schedule it will not come up.

Sent Rick at WRTN an email. Hopefully he'll be able to get whatever is wrong with 6-2 (and 6-4) fixed soon.
