(DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3)

The new part arrived this morning, was successfully installed, and our DT25 Over The Air signal restored apx 12:30pm. Due to the outage, some OTA viewers may need to do a rescan to re-acquire the DT25 signal. Paid provider services should have restored their signal by now as well.

Thanks for your patience, and for watching KQED (via KQET)!

(DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3)
UPDATE Mon 12/14 4:50pm: Unfortunately, we are unable to repair our fried equipment, and will need to order/find a replacement. At this point, we do know the signal will definitely not return tonight, and do not yet have an estimated time re: when it will be back. Thanks for your patience and understanding while we work on repairs.

UPDATE Mon 12/14 3pm: We’ve been able to get to the tower today, and have isolated the problem (a piece of fried equipment due to a power surge). At this point, we’re not sure if we’ll be able to patch up the existing equipment or need to order in a new piece, so we do not yet have an estimated time for the signal to be back on air.

ORIGINAL POST Sun 12/13: We are aware that our DT25 Over the Air signal is down in the Watsonville/Salinas/Monterey area, since about 10am Sunday morning. This affects both Over the Air viewers, and viewers of provider services that use that signal as their source for the region.

This outage will probably last at least a few days, as the severe weather at Fremont Peak caused mudslides and other obstacles, and we are currently unable to get to the transmitter to assess damage.

We will update this post as we learn more.

Comcast Cable/Xfinity customers are not affected by this outage.

Tues 9/29: Planned outage for KQET DT25 Over the Air signal

September 29, 2015 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

(DT25.1, 25.2 & 25.3)

The Fremont Peak transmission tower will be undergoing one of its routine maintenance inspections Tuesday. We expect to shut down the KQET DT25 signal at approximately 2pm (along with other stations on the tower), and expect to return around 3pm.

Most TVs will automatically recover the signals after an outage of this short a duration. However, some OTA viewers may need to rescan once signals return. This work will also affect customers of satellite-model companies which get their signal Over the Air.

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.

KQED most channels, planned overnight maintenance: early Wed 1/14 midnight-3am

January 12, 2015 · Filed Under KQED, KQED Plus, KQET · Comment 

(includes all DT9, DT54 and DT25 channels, along with most paid signal providers)

We will be doing maintenance work in our Master Control area during the overnight hours of late Tues/early Wed 1/14. Work will begin shortly after midnight early Wednesday, and should be done in 2-3 hours, perhaps sooner.

This will result in all of our Over The Air (OTA) signals being down, which will also affect those paid signal providers who use OTA as their source. If you get your signal from a paid provider other than Comcast, they will restore your signal once we’re back on the air. Many Over The Air (OTA) receivers will also re-acquire the signal on their own once the signals return, but some OTA viewers may need to do a rescan in order to reestablish a link.

Most Comcast channels will continue to transmit during the work. The exception will be KQED Plus (Comcast 10/710 most areas), which will go dark during the work, and be restored along with the OTA signals.

KQED all channels, planned overnight maintenance: early Fri 12/19 midnight-6am

We will be doing upgrade and maintenance work in our Master Control area during the overnight hours of late Thurs/early Fri 12/19. Work will begin shortly after midnight early Friday, which may last until 6am, though we hope to finish earlier.

This will result in all of our TV channels being off the air via all delivery methods. If you get your signal from a paid provider (cable, satellite, etc.) they will restore your signal once we’re back on the air. Many Over The Air (OTA) receivers will also re-acquire the signal on their own once the signals return, but some OTA viewers may need to do a rescan in order to reestablish a link.

KQET (DT25) Over the Air: Wed 8/27

We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.

KQET Off Air Sun 8/03 morning

August 3, 2014 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

(DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3)
KQET DT25 was off the air for a portion of Sunday morning, due to the transmitter taking a power hit. The signal has been restored.

Most receivers should have re-acquired our signal once it returned, but a few Over the Air viewers may need to do a rescan in order to restore the signal to their systems.
