Until December 2007, it aired only a standard definition digital signal at an effective radiated power of 980 watts limiting reception to within miles of the station. It now broadcasts in 1080i.

Famous quotes containing the word television:
“Photographs may be more memorable than moving images because they are a neat slice of time, not a flow. Television is a stream of underselected images, each of which cancels its predecessor. Each still photograph is a privileged moment, turned into a slim object that one can keep and look at again.”
—Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
