WRTN is Currently Having Problems and More

- Posted April 26th, 2017 at 1:37pm
I just got an e-mail from the WRTN owner. He said, "We are having transmitter issues which we are repairing." So, if anybody has been having problems trying to receive WRTN channel 6, that is why. Also, if you have noticed, WJFB channel 44 has been having equipment problems. Up until last month, they haven't been broadcasting at 1000kw. With the equipment problems, they had to reduce that to just 314kw since then. They will have to stay there until they have fix it. That is all the news I have for you right now until later.

Other than RetroTV, I hadn't noticed any prolonged issue with WRTN. (Of course RetroTV is the one subchannel I really want on 6). However WJDE, 31, hasn't been coming in at all for me for a few days now... I'm on the fringe of reception but I can normally get at least intermittent blips, especially over multiple days. Anyone else?

For the past few months, it seems that WJDE is off the air for a couple weeks, then they will be back on the air again for a couple weeks....until they go off again. As far as I've been able to determine, there's no phone number or website to contact them and find out what's going on. It's very frustrating.

Now I've had issues with WRTN reception in recent days. WJDE has continued with no reception at all. The only WJDE contact information I have been able to find is here, they are based out of Louisville, KY.

WJDE is back on the air as of today. Anybody's guess as to how long that will last though.

Tuesday, May 16 at 5 pm I got my first good recording from WJDE, 31, after their latest problem. WRTN, 6, I still have no reception at all (I have had weak audio on rare occasion when scanning through). Verified amplifier appears to still be working, other weak stations coming in well, so it would seem to be broadcast related.

And... WJDE 31 appears to be off the air again starting yesterday. *:-) And it returned again today.

Got a brief but degraded recording from WRTN last Saturday, then weak or no signal after the storms for the rest of the week. Tonight I'm getting "Mode Not Supported"... whatever that means for a TV channel.
