(WTXL) — WTXL engineers and a tower repair crew completed work on the ABC 27 transmission tower on Saturday, returning the station to its primary antenna by late afternoon.

Crews have been repairing damage from a February lightning strike at the transmitter tower site over the last several weeks. As part of the repairs, workers had to switch to a temporary antenna Saturday morning, which impacted reception for some customers watching the station via an antenna.
