The other Quincy Newspapers stations are WSJV-TV/DT, Elkhart, Ind., WVVA-TV/DT, Bluefield, W.V., WAOW TV/DT, Wausau, Wisc., WQOW-TV/DT, Eau Claire, Wisc., WYOW-TV/DT, Eagle River, Wisc., WXOW, Lacrosse, Wisc., KTTC-TV/DT, Rochester, Minn., WREX-TV/DT, Rockford, Ill., and WKOW-TV, Madison, Wisc.

WGEM, WSJV, WVVA, WAOW, WQOW, WYOW and WXOW are upgrading their 1.8 kw DHD8 model DiamondCD transmitters to 7.25 kw DHD30 models. Each station also is adding the Harris Apex digital television exciter to its transmitter.

By upgrading their power, the QNI stations are enhancing and augmenting their digital signal coverage areas in preparation for the FCC-scheduled analog phase-out in 2006.
