The first sign-off was recorded on an early weekday afternoon and features a few shots of BRPTV technicians at work. I suspect that BRPTV also used this clip at sign-on time as well, for no mention of signing-off is mentioned. The second clip was recorded late at night and displays video of the Roanoke skyline at night, then to some very brief color bars before the carrier is cut. BRPTV officially became Blue Ridge PBS on 19 February 2007. The Blue Ridge PBS stations now transmit digitally on different channels, as follows: WBRA-TV 3, Roanoke, WSBN-TV 32, Norton (serving the Tri-Cities area of Tennessee), and WMSY-TV 42, Marion.

The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues.
