(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.
(DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3)
All stations operating from the transmitter on Fremont Peak (northeast of Monterey), including KQET-DT25, will need to shut down for a period of time in the overnight hours late Mon/early Tues 10/16 to allow the crew to safely do needed maintenance work. The shutdown will start apx 12:30am, and should be finished by 6am Tues morning.
This will affect Over the Air viewers of DT25, and any paid service provider who uses that signal as their source. Tuners should automatically restore the signals once stations power back up, but some viewers may need to do a rescan.
(DT25.1, 25.2, & 25.3)
Our KQET DT25 transmitter on Fremont Peak is repaired, and back to operating at full power.
(DT25.1, 25.2, & 25.3)
We have had a failure in a major piece of equipment at the transmitter for KQET DT25 on Fremont Peak, servicing the Monterey/Santa Cruz/Salinas areas. The result is it can only operate at 20% power, a situation which will last for several days. A technician from the manufacturer is flying out with new equipment to facilitate repairs, but at this time we don’t have an estimate as to when we’ll be back at full power.
This is likely to affect many Over the Air viewers, and any cable/satellite company which pulls its signal from that tower. We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to learn more by Monday or Tuesday of next week, and as we do, this page will be updated.
