WSFA 12 News has shut off our analog television transmitter and are now broadcasting in digital only.
If you have been getting WSFA 12 News over the air with an antenna using a digital television or a digital converter box before Friday June 12th buy cannot recieve us now, the most common issues affecting reception of WSFA 12 after the Big Switch are rescanning and antenna .
Our signal was UHF until Friday, June 12th. Now it is VHF. It is important that your antenna is VHF capable. If it is, try pointing the antenna toward Grady, Alabama in lower Montgomery County and rescanning your converter box or digital television for channels.
If you are using rabbit ears make sure the poles are set to 12 inches long and in the "V" configuration. You may have to rescan several times or even manually enter 12.1 to receive us. If you don't pick us up then move your antenna slightly and try again. If you received WSFA before Friday, June 12th, you are well within range of our signal and should be able to receive us now with the proper antenna.
If your antenna is part of your DirecTV or DISH Satellite system you may have to reset your satellite reciever box and rescan for available channels
