Need a favor, I'm out of town and was wondering if weathernation was showing weather alerts. I know there is bad weather at home and was just curious if weathernation would do that.

Thanks!

Weathernation is running a scroll and radar for the Severe Thunderstorm Warning this evening,

WIWN has been added to Direct TV's Milwaukee market local channel lineup.

Has WIWN been added to any other satellite or cable systems?

Earlier this past summer , I did a scan and Weathernation 68.1 showed up. I was only able to get it for a  few hours. Since then (and multiple scans later) I have not been able to pick it up. I have our indoor antenna picking up EVERY local ota channel at 100% signal strength ,. but STILL can't draw it in. What gives? We are even getting channel 10.1 @ 100% and from what I understand , WIWN is using their tower. We are in Muskego so I would think we should be able to get WIWN. Any suggestions? :bang: I was impressed with what I saw , it is very much like what the Weather channel USED to be decades ago....ONLY WEATHER and not NBC/Liberal- pushed agendas.

You're not really missing much anymore- it's pretty much turned into a 24/7 infomercial channel.  Whoever bought the station is just biding time until the FCC spectrum auction.

Are we talking about the same channel? My brother in GA says it's not like that there...very few commercials.:huh?:

You are referring to the WeatherNation network, of which WIWN is nominally the WeatherNation affiliate for the area.

However, WIWN preempts many hours of the WeatherNation programming day to carry the OnTV4U paid programming network instead.
