  1. I live in Elkton and my parents in Hastings. We’ve all lost your over the air signal for a least the past week for WAWS (WFOX) channel 30. I can not find any information on the issue online. Hopefully this is a scheduled maintenance or repair. Is there a timeline for when the signal will be back up?
