I know this is not that much newsworthy seeing that WNPX-LP analog 20 will be switching from analog 20 to digital 20 soon, but if you are like me and have noticed that WNPX's low power analog channel 20 has been off the air for sometime now and thinking they may be going to digital soon, well, think again. They just filed with the FCC a silent notification. With that notification, they have explained what happened to the station. By the way, the station has been off the air since July 9th.
"THE STATION'S EXCITER FAILED AND WHEN A SWITCH TO THE BACKUP EXCITER WAS MADE, IT TOO FAILED. THE EXCITER'S MANUFACTURER, COMARK, DOES NOT HAVE PARTS TO REPAIR EXCITERS. EFFORTS ARE UNDERWAY THRU COMARK AND OTHERS TO LOCATE SUITABLE REPAIR PARTS. IT CANNOT BE DETERMINED AT THIS POINT HOW LONG THE STATION WILL BE OFF THE AIR."
If there is any more news, I will post it here.
