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

February 22, 2017 · Posted By Red Dana · Filed Under KQET · 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.

loss of KQED 88.5 on channel 960 for some Comcast/Xfinity customers

February 13, 2017 · Posted By Red Dana · Filed Under KQED Public Radio Sacramento, Radio · Comments Off on loss of KQED 88.5 on channel 960 for some Comcast/Xfinity customers 

We are aware that some Comcast/Xfinity customers have lost access to local radio stations in the upper 900 channels, particularly KQED 88.5 Public Radio on channel 960. Comcast has begun another system-wide upgrade of their equipment.

It is our understanding that late last year some Xfinity customers received notices along with their bills that, in order to maintain some of their services, such as On Demand and/or the local radio stations, they would need to upgrade their settop boxes.

You will need to contact their customer service staff in order to discuss acquiring a newer box.

Wed 11/30: planned momentary outages of DT54 over the air signal

November 29, 2016 · Posted By Red Dana · Filed Under KQED Plus · Comments Off on Wed 11/30: planned momentary outages of DT54 over the air signal 

(this is a continuation of the work originally announced for 11/28, which was not completed on Tuesday.)

At some point during the morning of Wednesday Nov. 30th, the KQEH transmitter will switch from its main antenna to the auxillary one, to allow for the safety of workers doing maintenance for another TV station on the tower. When work is completed, we will switch back to the main antenna.

These two switches will cause momentary outages for Over the Air viewers of Channel 54.1 through 54.5, and for viewers of any services using the DT54 signals as their source. Because of the short duration, most TVs will automatically restore the signal once the switches take place.

Xfinity/Comcast viewers and viewers of the DT9 and DT25 signals will not be affected by this work.
