Program: My TV Channels Are Moving Again? Seriously?

by Jay Adrick, K8CJY

Join us to hear about television broadcast changes coming to Cincinnati this fall. Jay will cover not only the spectrum repacking that is forcing 1000 US TV stations to move to new channels but also the second generation digital television system that will be implemented over the next few years. Cincinnati is one of the 40 TV markets that are part of the initial transition happening on October 18th so don't miss this timely program!
