(DT9.1, 9.2, 9.3)
KQED DT9′s Over the Air (OTA) signal from Sutro Tower will experience a few extremely brief outages on Tuesday 4/15 between 10am and 5pm (and possibly on Wed 4/16 if the work cannot be completed in 1 day). Each outage should be measurable in seconds (not minutes).
This work will not affect Comcast Cable and Astound Cable customers. Viewers and other paid providers who get their signals from our Sutro Tower OTA transmission should see their signals automatically restored after each brief outage, as these timings are well within the capacity of most tuners to remember the signal while it’s missing.
(DT 25.1, 25.2, 25.3)
At some point between 5am and 6am early Tuesday 4/15, KQET’s signal from the transmitter on Fremont Peak northeast of Monterey will shut down for a short period of time to allow AT&T to do work on our fiber interface. The outage should be relatively short, but its precise start time and duration is not known.
Comcast Cable subscribers will not be affected by this work.
Any other paid signal providers using this signal as their source will restore service to their customers when the signal returns. For Over the Air viewers, most receivers will automatically restore the signal as well when it returns, since the outage will be relatively short.
