Telemundo 47 resumes transmission from One World Trade Center

With the push of a button, Telemundo 47 / WNJU became the first Tri-State television station to officially resume over-the-air transmissions from One World Trade Center in New York.

The Spanish-language station’s TV signal is powered by the most powerful, solid-state broadcast transmitter ever constructed.

Only twelve linear feet in size, Telemundo 47’s over-the-air transmitter is powered by 66 kilowatts of cutting-edge technology. This power provides Telemundo 47 with the largest coverage area of any television station in the New York market.

The transmitter is also planned to power the over-the-air signal from sister station NBC 4 New York / WNBC, which is preparing to relocate its transmission facilities to One World Trade Center.
