Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WBIH shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 29, on May 22, 2006. The station "flash-cut" its digital signal into operation UHF channel 29.[2] Because it was granted an original construction permit after the FCC finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997.[3] The station did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station.
