Thurs 6/28: KQED Plus (KQEH) transmitter back on air

June 28, 2012 · Filed Under KQED Plus · Comment 

Repairs have been done to our transmitter atop Monument Peak, and our DT54.1 through DT54.5 channels are once again available Over The Air. Many receivers will automatically restore our signal within a few minutes of our return. However, if your receiver has not yet restored the signal, you may need to manually delete and re-add our channel, or perform a rescan, to reacquire our signal.

Our KQED Plus (KQEH) transmitter atop Monument Peak northeast of San Jose has gone off air. This affects Over the Air reception of DT54.1 through DT54.5. Engineers are working to resolve the problem, but we do not have an estimated time of repair at this time.

Comcast Cable viewers are not affected by this outage.

Thurs 6/28: Fremont Peak transmitter maintenance

June 26, 2012 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

Our KQET transmitter on Fremont Peak, northeast of Monterey, will be off air for apx 25-30 minutes late Thursday morning, for maintenance. This will affect over the air channels DT25.1 through DT25.3.

Most receivers should reacquire the signal automatically after an outage of such short duration, but a few viewers may need to manually re-add the channel or do a rescan to restore it.

Planned short outages: KQED 9s, Wed 6/06 am & Fri 6/08 pm

(DT9.1, DT9.2, DT9.3, possibly Comcast 9 & 709)
Wednesday morning PG&E will begin what is projected to be 3 days of work replacing nearly 70-year-old equipment in the Sutro Tower area. This will require KQED and several other stations transmitting from there to switch off their primary electrical source to a generator for the duration of the work.

The schedule is a bit fluid, but assuming all goes well, the outages will be of short duration. We anticpate two outages on Wednesday morning, apx 2 minutes around 8am, and apx 5 minutes around 10:30am, as the work begins. We also anticipate two outages on Friday evening, apx 2 minutes around 7pm, and apx 5 minutes around 9:30pm, as we switch back to electrical power on PG&E’s new equipment.

These outages will definitely affect Over the Air viewers, but most receivers handle outages of this short a duration with no problem, and should re-acquire our signal each time it returns. However, a few viewers may need to manually add channels back, or if several “go missing”, to do a rescan. This work might affect Comcast Cable viewers as well, in which case Comcast will restore signals as soon as they return.
