(DT9.1, 9.2, 9.3)
KQED (and 3 other local Bay Area stations) will be doing full-load testing on new equipment at Sutro Tower early Tues 4/22 between 1am & 5am. If all goes as planned the KQED transmitter will go off twice during the early part of this period for between 15 and 30 seconds each time.
This should only affect KQED’s over the air signal and will not affect Comcast or Astound Cable carriage of KQED. Whether it affects DirecTV and/or DishTV will depend on whether they are taking our studio fiber feed or using our Sutro Over the Air signal as their source at the time of our tests.
