The KQET transmitter on Fremont Peak is running at very low power levels. This is a temporary situation until the necessary parts are delivered.
Thank you for your support and patience.
Comcast will be doing work on Friday morning 12/20/13 (1:00AM-5:00AM) that will affect some local broadcasters. KQED channels will go off for approximately two minutes at some point during this window.
KQET at Fremont Peak is off the air till further notice. A PG&E outage caused damage to the controller in the transmitter.
(DT 25.1 through 25.3)
On Friday, June 21st, we will be doing maintenance on the KQET transmitter servicing the Watsonville, Monterey, Salinas, Gilroy areas. Starting around 11:30am our Over the Air (OTA) signal will be down for 10-20 minutes.
This should not affect Comcast Cable viewers. Other paid signal providers which use the Over the Air signal as their source will restore their programming as soon as our signal is back up.
Most OTA tuners will automatically find the signal again once it is restored, but a few viewers may need to rescan to re-acquire the signal.
KQET on Fremont Peak will be shut down for maintenance on Friday, March 15, from approximately 11am until 11:30am.
We are aware of the lack of sound on current transmission of “Nature: Cold Warriors”. Engineers are working to solve the problem.
KSBW is requesting we shut down KQET for tower work this Friday Morning, December 14, 2012. The outage is scheduled to begin at 12:30am.
12/14/12 Update: The work was not completed last night, so the tower is scheduled to be shut down again early 12/15.
We are aware that on-screen program information (PSIP) is currently missing for Over the Air viewers. The software company has been contacted, and hopefully repairs will happen quickly. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
We are aware that the audio on KQET DT25 is low. Replacement parts should arrive Wednesday 11/14, at which point repairs will be able to be made. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We are aware that Over the Air viewers of KQET DT25 are currently receiving KQET 25.1, but 25.2 and 25.3 have gone missing. Engineers are looking into the issue, and we appreciate your patience while we work on the resolution.
