WTVJ - Repeaters


In addition to its main signals, WTVJ is also carried on repeater W44AC channel 44 in Key West, which is owned by Miranda Broadcasting Company of Key West, LLC.

WTVJ was previously seen on two other translators, W58BU channel 58 in Hallandale (from a transmitter in Pembroke Park) and W52BB channel 52 in Big Pine Key. Prior to the analog shutdown and digital conversion, W58BU (originally W61AA until late 1992) was necessary because of WTVJ's former analog transmitter location in Redland, which is 20 miles (32 km) southwest of downtown Miami. This location is farther south than other Miami television stations. As a result, Fort Lauderdale and the rest of Broward County received a grade-B signal from the analog tower. WTVJ shut off the analog transmitter for the last time on June 26, 2009, though W58BU remained on the air for nearly two years afterward; however, with WTVJ's digital transmitter now located in the same area as other major Miami television stations, the need for W58BU was diminished, and by April 5, 2011 the translator was closed down and NBC surrendered its license, with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) formally deleting it on June 2. W52BB remains in operation as a separate station, WGZT-LP channel 27 in Key West.
