An unregistered user submitted this in our "Ask Fox Cities TV" area, but I thought I'd move this over to the forums.

Has anyone else complained about losing channel 14.1 after the storms Sunday? We live 19 miles north of Green Bay and the picture hasn't come back as of today. The signal is very low (in the bad range). 14.1 signal used to be in the good range. Just wondering what happen after the storm. We adjusted our antenna and even bought a new antenna to see if that would help (needed one anyway).

P.S. We are getting it OTA.

Sincerely, Robert

Anybody else experience this?  I know at various times during the storms this weekend, we would get incredibly lousy over-the-air signal from WBAY on our Digital Stream conversion box, but it would be fine later on.

hi Jeff Bartel here,

hi
Jeff Bartel here, promotions manager at Wisconsin's CW. Our digital signal has experienced occasional decreases in power, and even outages, due to a faulty part in our digital transmitter. The problem almost always happens during bad weather.
A replacement part needs to be manufactured, and the estimate is for the faulty equipment to be replaced is in late summer or early fall. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
