The transition has begun: WEAU (NBC 13 Eau Clare, WI) switches to all digital

At around 12:34PM this afternoon (Monday 2/16/09) Eau Clare's NBC WEAU 13 shut off both their analog and digital channels (formerly ch. 39). They moved their digital channel from channel 39 to ch. 13. and should be broadcasting at 26KW. Reports are in that it is up and running.

As has been stated before, WKBT 8 (CBS LaCrosse, WI) and KTTC 10 (NBC Rochester, MN) will be switching tomorrow. WKBT will be moving from ch. 41 back to ch. 8 and KTTC will be moving from ch. 36 back to ch. 10.

Keep re-scanning those channels, folks.

UPDATE: From all that we've gathered, WEAU is extremely weak. Many viewers who got a perfect picture on WEAU analog can not lock WEAU-DT. It seems as if there's a major issue with the station it self. As always, we'll keep you posted on the station. Check out the latest developments for your self on the AVS Forum's LaCrosse/Wausau, WI thread.
