WMTV Channel 15, Madison, Wisconsin
Final Analog Sign-off - Tuesday, 17 February 2009

Page modified Monday, 10 2020

Wisconsin capital city's NBC station is one of the oldest UHF stations in the U.S., commencing operations 'way back in July, 1953. It's analog farewell consisted of only a static station ID graphic and a voice-over announcer, similar to that of its sister station WNDU-TV in South Bend, IN, followed by a live shot of the U.S. and Wisconsin state flags waving, presumably from the State Capital building. After that is a minute or so of the classic "Indian Head" black-and-white test pattern before the analog signal is shut down.
