|Sign-off of the station known as Fox
Rochester, back in the day before it became known as
such. From its intial sign-on in January 1980 up to
becoming a charter affiliate of the Fox Network in
October 1986, WUHF-TV was a typical independent, running
lots of cartoons, old sitcoms, dramas, movies and
religious programs. The video kicks off with thefinal
seconds of a program that was syndicated by the Lexington
Broadcast Service Company (LBS). Following an animated
WUHF 31 station ID comes the sign-off announcement,
running a mere seventeen seconds, mentioning only the
studio and transmitter locations. The MOOG SSB film comes
right after this, with the first few seconds cut off
(kettle drum roll). The final seconds of the SSB film is
also cut when the color bars appear at the end of the
