KQET planned overnight outage, early Friday 3/13

March 12, 2015 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

(DT25-1 through 25-3)

Another station on Fremont Tower needs to perform more maintenance work overnight, requiring other TV stations to shut down their signals for the safety of the workers.

KQET’s signal will turn off late Thurs/early Friday between midnight and 12:30am, and should return by 6am Friday morning. Many receivers will be able to recover from this outage on their own, but some Over the Air viewers may need to do a rescan to recover the various signals.

This work will also affect any paid signal providers who use DT25-1 as their source for KQED/KQET. Comcast Cable subscribers will not be affected.

Thurs 3/05, DT54-1 thru DT54-5: 2 planned, extremely brief Over the Air outages

(DT54.1 through DT54.5)

Our Over the Air signals from our KQEH transmitter on Monument Peak (the DT54s) will need to be switched from our Main antenna to our Auxillary antenna while climbers inspect the tower for possible maintenance needs. Once the inspection is done, we will switch back. The two switches will account for two extremely brief outages of just a few seconds, so most receivers should handle recovering the signals each time with no problems.

Exact times for the switches are unknown, but the work should be completed by mid- to late-afternoon, if not sooner. This work will not affect Comcast Cable customers, or the OTA signals for KQED Plus on DT9.2 or DT25.2
