Schenectady Channel 6 TV Station Turns Off FM Simulcast

August 27, 2009


CBS affiliate WRGB(TV) in Schenectady, broadcasting on Channel 6, has turned off its analog simulcast on 87.9 MHz.

That's because the station doesn't have Federal Communications Commission authorization to transmit an analog signal — only digital.

"We are reviewing our options and I apologize for any inconvenience to our audience," says GM Robert Furlong in a message on the station's Web site. "Thank you again to all of our viewers for their patience as we work through our digital issues."

WRGB broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on VHF Channel 6 from a transmitter northwest of New Salem.
