• WPBN-TV Ch. 7 Traverse City was granted a construction permit for a DTV translator on Ch. 50 to be used to better serve the greater Traverse City area. WPBN was using this facility as its temporary DTV facilities and found that after moving to Ch. 7 in June many viewers were experiencing reception issues. WPBN has also petitioned the FCC to move its digital broadcasts to Ch. 47 from a new tower location in Kalkaska county.
