early Mon 4/22 midnight-6am: KQEH OTA planned overnight outage

April 19, 2013 · Filed Under KQED Plus · Comment 

(DT54.1 through DT54.5)
Early in the morning of April 22nd starting at 12 midnight KQEH will need to shut down for electrical maintenance and transmitter work. The Over the Air (OTA) signal should be back before 6am.

Comcast Cable customers, and customers of other paid providers using fiber feed out of our San Francisco Master Control area should not be affected by this work.

Most receivers should automatically recover the OTA signal when it is restored early Monday morning. However a few viewers may need to do a rescan in order to restore the signal.

Tues 4/09 5:20am-8:20am – KQEH (DT54s) off air

April 9, 2013 · Filed Under KQED Plus · Comment 

Our DT54.1-5 Over The Air (OTA) transmissions from our tower on Monument Peak were interrupted for 3 hours this morning, from 5:20am to 8:20am. Service Providers using the DT54.1 signal for KQED Plus restored their carriage of the channel as soon as the signal returned.

Most tuners in digital TVs and/or converter boxes will automatically recover from an outage of that short a duration. However, a few OTA viewers may need to do a rescan in order to restore the DT54 signal.

KQEH Down for Maintenance Thu, 3/14 11-11:30am

Mon 3/04: planned maintenance, Monument Peak Transmitter

March 1, 2013 · Filed Under KQED Plus · Comment 

Another TV station that shares the Monument Peak transmitter with KQEH (DT54.1 thru DT54.5) needs to perform maintenance on their equipment Monday, meaning that we will need to switch antennas and/or lower power for our OTA signal at various points, for the safety of the crew. Work is likely to begin around 11:30am, and should end by 5:30pm.

Most equipment should handle these changes without problem, but there is the possibility that a few (older) receivers may get confused. Should that happen, try manually deleting then re-acquiring the signal for DT54, or do a rescan to acquire a new lock on the signal after sunset, when everything should be back to normal.
