WILMINGTON -- For local TV viewer's concerned about the big switch, Dan Ullmer's Guide is a must read.

Dan Ullmer is the Chief Engineer at WECT and has put together a free guide to the September 8 switch to digital broadcasting.

Inside it are answers to questions about converter boxes, coupons, signal strength, and all the other issues associated with the transition.

To get a copy of the guide you can click here, or go to the station on 322 Shipyard Boulevard during business hours.

This weekend you can get digital TV questions answered at two locations.

Government experts will be at a Children's Miracle Network event at the Elizabethtown Wal-Mart on Saturday.

They will also be set up at the Waccamaw Paddlefest and Native American Exhibition in Columbus County.
