Thu 9/20: KQET DT25 transmitter at low power for several days

We have had a failure in a major piece of equipment at the transmitter for KQET DT25 on Fremont Peak, servicing the Monterey/Santa Cruz/Salinas areas. The result is it can only operate at 20% power, a situation which will last for several days. A technician from the manufacturer is flying out with new equipment to facilitate repairs, but at this time we don’t have an estimate as to when we’ll be back at full power.

This is likely to affect many Over the Air viewers, and any cable/satellite company which pulls its signal from that tower. We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to learn more by Monday or Tuesday of next week, and as we do, this page will be updated.

Thu 9/20 & Fri 9/21: KQET DT25 possible OTA interruptions

Maintenance work is being done during the day on the transmission tower on Fremont Peak. All stations on the tower, including KQET DT25, will need to reduce power at different parts of the day as the crew climbs near their particular transmission antennas. This may cause some Over the Air viewers to temporarily lose our signal. Most tuners should then automatically re-acquire any lost signal when it returns to full strength. However, if you still have no signal after sunset, you may need to do a rescan.
