ASO trial in Wilmington NC

Commercial full-power TV broadcasters in Wilmington, North Carolina, will turn off their analogue transmitters for good and only transmit Digital TV from noon on Sept. 8, 2008, more than five months before the digital television transition nationally, the FCC announced last week.
The early analogue shutoff will be done with the commission’s blessing because the Wilmington TV market will serve as the first in the nation to test the DTV transition in advance of the Feb. 17, 2009, digital television transmission switch over.
