WEAO (Channel 49) has resumed broadcasts after more than two weeks off the air.
The public-broadcasting station, part of Western Reserve PBS, went off the air April 14 because of problems with an 800-foot line running from its Copley transmitter to its antenna tower. Rain and heavy winds delayed repairs.
Viewers who received the station via Time Warner Cable, AT&T Uverse, Massillon Cable and DirecTV have been able to get broadcasts after those services picked up the signal from its companion station, WNEO (Channel 45). But people getting the WEAO signal over the air or from other service providers have been out of luck unless they got Channel 45 over the air.
A station representative said viewers getting the over-the-air signal might have to rescan their receivers to pick up WEAO again.
