early Thurs 9/29 1am-6am: planned KQET/DT25 outage

September 28, 2016 · Filed Under KQET · Comments Off on early Thurs 9/29 1am-6am: planned KQET/DT25 outage 

(DT25-1 through DT25-3)

Late Wed/early Thurs 9/29 1am, the KQET DT25 transmitter will be turned off for maintenance and electrical upgrades. The plan is that the signal should be restored at approximately 6am.

Most Over the Air TVs will automatically restore the signal once the transmitter is turned back on. However, a few viewers may need to do a rescan to re-acquire the signal.

Xfinity/Comcast viewers will not be affected by this work. Viewers of providers which use the Monterey signal as their source will be affected, but those providers should restore service shortly after we turn the transmitter back on.

(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)!

Sun 12/13: KQET DT25 Over the Air signal down

December 13, 2015 · Filed Under KQET · Comments Off on Sun 12/13: KQET DT25 Over the Air signal down 

(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.
(This post will continue to update whenever I learn more. –Red)

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.
