WOHL increases transmission power


LIMA – WOHL television in Lima has increased its power from 11,500 watts to 15,000 watts.

The power increase, done on March 17, is the maximum allowed by the Federal Communications Commission for a Class A Digital Television station.

Viewers can find the digital over-the-air stations on 35.1-ABC and 35.2-CBS.

Due to the power increase and the previously installed translators in Minster and Leipsic, the WOHL signal can reach from Wauseon in Fulton County to Sidney in Shelby County.

The change only affects over-the-air viewers. There is no change for those who watch television via cable, dish or the internet.

WOHL is owned by Block Communications, which also owns WLIO-NBC and Fox in Lima.

Viewers in southern Auglaize County can visit www.wams-minster.com for technical information.

Questions concerning transmission and reception can be sent to tech@wlio.com or by calling 419-228-8835 during the normal business day and asking for the engineering department.
