Thu 9/20 & Fri 9/21: KQET DT25 possible OTA interruptions

September 19, 2012 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

(DT25.1, 25.2, & 25.3)
Maintenance work is being done during the day on the transmission tower on Fremont Peak. All stations on the tower, including KQET DT25, will need to reduce power at different parts of the day as the crew climbs near their particular transmission antennas. This may cause some Over the Air viewers to temporarily lose our signal. Most tuners should then automatically re-acquire any lost signal when it returns to full strength. However, if you still have no signal after sunset, you may need to do a rescan.

Wed & Thu, Sep 12-13: Reception issues related to antenna maintenance work

September 13, 2012 · Filed Under KQED, KQED Plus, KQET · Comment

Thurs 8/02: KQEH & KQET audio issue resolved

August 2, 2012 · Filed Under KQED Plus, KQET · Comment 

Our engineers were able to resolve the Over the Air audio problem for our KQEH transmitter (DT54s) around 3:30pm this afternoon, and for our KQET transmitter (DT25s) by 3:45pm. Most receivers/converter boxes should automatically restore the audio, since they never lost our actual signal.

However, if anyone is still experiencing a lack of audio Over the Air, doing a rescan should solve the problem.

Thurs 8/02: audio issue for OTA 54s & 25s

August 2, 2012 · Filed Under KQED Plus, KQET · Comment 

We are aware that Over the Air (OTA) viewers are receiving video but no audio from our KQEH transmitter (DT54.1 through DT54.5) and from our KQET transmitter (DT25.1 through DT25.3). Engineers are working on the problem, but a repair time is not yet known.

Thurs 6/28: Fremont Peak transmitter maintenance

June 26, 2012 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

Our KQET transmitter on Fremont Peak, northeast of Monterey, will be off air for apx 25-30 minutes late Thursday morning, for maintenance. This will affect over the air channels DT25.1 through DT25.3.

Most receivers should reacquire the signal automatically after an outage of such short duration, but a few viewers may need to manually re-add the channel or do a rescan to restore it.

4/23: KQET DT25 OTA signal restored

April 23, 2012 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

UPDATE: We believe we have the faulty part replaced, and the KQET DT25 signal fully restored as of early Monday afternoon. Thanks again for your patience.

Original Post:4/23: KQET DT25 off air intermittently
Due to a mechanical problem, the KQET DT25 transmitter has been cycling on and off air intermittently, beginning Saturday 4/21. This affects predomininantly Over the Air (OTA) viewers in the 831 area, although a few paid service providers may be using that OTA signal as well. We are working on repairs, but a final fix time is not yet known. We thank you for your patience.

Planned outages: KQET (DT25) 4/10, KQED Plus (DT54) 4/12

April 10, 2012 · Filed Under KQED Plus, KQET · Comment 

We will be shutting down the KQET (DT25) transmitter on Fremont Peak on Tuesday, April 10th, from about 11am to 11:30am, for planned maintenance work.

We will also be doing maintenance for KQED Plus (KQEH DT54 transmitter on Monument Peak) on Thursday, April 12th, also around 11am to 11:30am.

Comcast Cable customers will not be affected by these outages. Most Over the Air (OTA) TV tuners will restore the signals automatically at the end of an outage this short, but a few OTA viewers may need to manually re-add the channel.

Tues 1/24: KQET DT25 digitization problem resolved

January 24, 2012 · Filed Under KQET · Comment 

As of 1:45pm Tuesday 1/24, we believe the KQET digitization issues affecting Channel 25’s signal delivery to viewers in the 831 area via most paid service providers have been solved. Other carriers are confirming a good signal. (Over The Air viewers and Comcast Cable customers were not affected by the problem.)
