Some photos I've found
« on: August 03, 2011, 10:35:25 PM »
I came across this website thats mostly about DXing over-the-air television signals and found this interesting section that features a collection of TWC and TWN local forecast pictures. Some of these photos are however messed up or just shot in front of the TV screen and were captured between 1993-2009.

Anyways, these are not my photos, but I hope you'll still enjoy these pictures.

Pretty cool! I'm thinking about doing something similar on my site. Can't decide, though, on whether to post images or videos.

Thats neat! I recognize some of those STARs too! It even lists Peoria IL (which is where you live)  :biggrin:
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

The photo from Morton, IL may be the same IntelliStar from my area's Comcast headend. It's #22878 (I still remember the ID number). I beleve the Comcast headend in Morton is part of the same cable system as the one here in my town, so I think they even get the same channel line-up.
 
BTW: here's another picture I've found on the same website, this one features former TWC OCM Bruce Edwards (Kalinowski) at WOIO-TV. This was from September 2001.
