TV Technical Profile: WYLE
Located near the Underwood Heights neighborhood of Colbert County,
Underwood Mountain Road and Little Egypt Road. This may not be
entirely correct; earlier listings from when the station was still
on the air show it to have been broadcasting from a site slightly
down the road on Waterloo Road, where WFIQ-DT and WQPR (FM) now
41 dBu protected
map, from the FCC.
Before having the
calls, the station was WTRT, an independent station that came on the
air in April of 1986 under the ownership of Alabama Management, Inc.
This has been an independent station for a
long time but in February 2003 it flipped to Shop-at-Home network
It has been reported silent since February 7th, 2007
On March 12th
2009 the FCC issued a report stating that the station had stayed off
air for too long after an STA (special temporary authority) to go
expired. The station apparently came back on the air for one
period on February 3rd 2008, airing only a test pattern,
went back off the air. This did not satisfy the FCC, who has
deleted the analog record and the digital construction permit.
digital permit was never built out.
