  • WEAU IS BACK AT 2,000FT

    4 January, 2012

    At 12:30pm CT on Wednesday, January 4th WEAU 13 NEWS began broadcasting from its new 2,000ft tower in Fairchild, WI. WEAU is transmitting a stronger UHF signal from the new tower. Over-the-air viewers will need to point a UHF antenna towards Fairchild (between August and Neillsville) and rescan channels on their converter boxes and/or digital televisions. Satellite and cable subscribers will be unaffected by the change. WEAU will no longer broadcast a VHF signal.


    WEAU will cease simulcasting on 18.3 (WQOW/Eau Claire) and 25.2 (WLAX/La Crosse) on January 12th at 1:30pm.


    The new tower is at the same location and height as the former tower that fell due to an ice storm on March 22nd, 2011. The original tower was completed in the spring of 1966 and was Wisconsin’s tallest structure until it fell. The new tower is now the tallest structure in Wisconsin.

  • WEAU-TV completes assembly of new 2000-foot tower

    Mounting the antenna completes the tower assembly phase of the project, which began after WEAU’s previous 2000-foot tower collapsed March 22 during a spring ice and snow storm. “It is a heck of feat to get back to this stage before the end of the year” said Jim Ocon, VP of technology for Gray Television.
