KQED 88.3 FM Santa Rosa site lost in fire

February 7, 2018 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under KQED Public Radio Sacramento · Comments Off on KQED 88.3 FM Santa Rosa site lost in fire 

UPDATE 2/7/2018: Yesterday our engineers were able to work with the Internet service provider to improve the audio link to our temporary site. This should reduce the drop-outs and some interference. The repairs to the tower will still take some months to complete, but as soon as we can, we will return to the tower location.  If something doesn’t sound right we would like to hear from you: kqed.org/about/contact

UPDATE 11/01/2017: Our KQED Engineers are working diligently to restore the coverage of our Santa Rosa area translator. Since the translator site was destroyed by the Tubbs fire, it has been necessary to make it work from a new location. The new location has several technical challenges that will take time to fully overcome. Please bear with us while we work to bring back the best signal we can. We will need to occasionally turn the signal off while we make adjustments. We will keep the “Off” times as short as possible.

As soon as we can, we will return to the old location. But the restoration of power and the placement of utility buildings for our equipment may take some time.

KQED will no longer broadcast the KQEH signal from Monument Peak Tower effective 1/17/2018

December 13, 2017 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under KQED, TV · Comments Off on KQED will no longer broadcast the KQEH signal from Monument Peak Tower effective 1/17/2018 

KQED will be removing its over-the-air television signal from the Monument Peak Tower in the San Jose area on January 17, 2018 (Note: this maintenance was previously scheduled for December 15, 2017).

KQED will now broadcast our full suite of channels (KQED 9, KQED Plus, KQED World and PBS Kids) on Channel 9 and 54 from Sutro Tower in San Francisco, and on Channel 25 from Fremont Peak Tower in the Monterey/Salinas/Santa Cruz area. This change affects a small number of households, predominately located in the eastern Bay Area, that still depend on antenna reception. It has no impact on residents who receive their television via cable, satellite or the Internet. If you experience reception problems you may need to rescan your television. Visit kqed.org/54move to learn how.

KQED-FM, Sat 5/06-Sun 5/07: shift to auxiliary antenna

May 5, 2017 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under Radio · Comments Off on KQED-FM, Sat 5/06-Sun 5/07: shift to auxiliary antenna 

KQED-FM is likely to be operating on its auxiliary transmit antenna this Saturday and possibly Sunday as well. There will be workers redoing the tower light wiring on the tower that supports the KQED-FM main antenna. They have asked to begin work at 6AM and work the whole day on Saturday and finish on Sunday if necessary. This generally affects south bay listeners.

2/22/17: Fremont Peak tower transmissions, including KQET DT25

February 22, 2017 · Posted By Chris Hicks · Filed Under KQET, TV · Comments Off on 2/22/17: Fremont Peak tower transmissions, including KQET DT25 

(DT25.1 through 25.3)

Recent storms have taken out dozens of trees on Fremont Peak, which in turn have taken down power lines leading to the transmission tower located on the peak. It has been running on generators for several days, and regular trips are scheduled to re-fuel those generators with gas.

However, the truck has been blocked on at least two occasions already by more trees falling across the road, resulting in at least one interruption in Over the Air service when the generators ran out of gas before the road could be cleared. Occasional interruptions for stations transmitting from there, including KQET DT25, may continue to occur if more tree falls interfere with gas delivery.
