So let’s say you were driving down a country road in Herkimer County, NY, and you come across a giant TV antenna on a telephone pole, next to the road, in a field. Strange right? Well it’s not some conspiracy theorists’ dream. It’s an actual analog TV translator.
W04AE serves Herkimer as a relay of WTEN out of Albany.
This late summer trip was a good excuse for us to update a rather neat little corner of New York. Not quite Albany, not quite Utica, the stations of the Mohawk Valley serve the “tri-city” area of Johnstown, Gloversville, and Amsterdam. A total of six AMs serve
Three in Johnstown/Gloversville
and WFNY 1440.
WFNY’s translator is not located here, but rather up on a hill north of Gloversville, along with an LPTV (Co-Owned with WFNY), and WNGG 90.9
Amsterdam has two AMs
Amsterdam also has one large TV tower with FM side mounted to it.
Plus one of New York’s newer AM’s, that had a little controversial startup with the FCC rejecting the original license application.
This update also includes the Herkimer County Community College station WVHC…
And of course, a complete update to the Stewart’s Shops page from a summer of Western New York travel!
