San Diego DTV Transition in Home Stretch

Local TV stations KNSD, KUSI, and KPBS on Mt. San Miguel are poised to shutdown their normal analog services June 12 with most of the rest of the nation. None of the three must change channels. KNSD’s Director of Engineering David MacKinnon says current plans have them providing “nightlight” information service on UHF channel 39 until June 26 at full power.

That will leave only low power broadcasters left on analog, along with Mexican broadcast stations like English-language XHDTV 49 Tecate and XETV 6 Tijuana.
