The Annapolis WMPT television transmitter is scheduled to be turned off on Friday, February 15 at approximately 9:30 am for 1 to 3 hours. The purpose of this action is to allow a tower technician to repair the failing lighting beacon at the very top of the tower. All efforts will be taken to minimize the total off the air time. This event is conditional as it requires favorable weather conditions to complete.
