Viewers in our digital coverage area who have an outdoor UHF antenna and an HD-TV tuner should be able to receive Channel 13.1. Point the antennae in the direction of Fairchild, Wisconsin, the location of our digital transmitter.

WEAU has received reports of solid reception from Rice Lake, to
the north; Amery to the west; Sparta and downtown LaCrosse to the south.

In addition to over-the-air broadcasts, WEAU's digital signal is carried by some area cable providers. Charter Communications in Eau Claire carries WEAU-DT on Digital Cable channel 783. Check with your provider for availability. Currently, WEAU-DT is carried Direct TV but no other satellite system at this time. It is anticipated the signal will be carried on additional cable and satellite systems as viewers begin to
convert and request the service.

WEAU always broadcasts HD signals on 13.1 when available. Example of this would Prime time and the Today Show.
