Your feedback is extremely helpful as we work to negotiate carriage on the satellite systems reaching our area.

To receive our station using an antenna, new viewers will need to re-scan their TV or digital converter box. In some cases, you may need to re-scan a few times to receive our station. Here are a few other tips:

  • An amplified rooftop antenna on a rotor will generally provide the best reception of antenna TV signals. When a rooftop antenna isn’t an option, an amplified indoor antenna is usually the best option. If your antenna has a power switch, it’s amplified.
  • Our tower is located near M-55, about halfway between Cadillac and M-66. Pointing your antenna toward our tower will give your TV the strongest signal.
  • When re-scanning your TV to find MI News 26, you may need to re-scan a few times, slightly adjusting your antenna between scans, before your TV recognizes our station.
