On February 12, 2020, WAND shifted its broadcast frequency to its new channel 20 location on the UHF frequency spectrum. Weather conditions along with equipment delays and the inability to hire a qualified tower crew have pushed back the final work of installing a new antenna on the mast of the stations broadcast tower between Argenta and Oreana. In the interim, a temporary antenna has been installed at the 1004-foot level at the tower to broadcast a lower power, 231 kW. WAND has now applied for a power increase to 507kW to adequately send a signal to the station's translator stations in Danville, Jacksonville, and Effingham.


It also seems that WAND will be on the interim antenna for longer than what was originally expected. WAND has authorization by the FCC to move it's repack completion to now be in the Phase 8 schedule.  This information is from the avs forum and a contributor to that website.
