UPDATE: This morning’s maintenance took place at 8:36am, with the signal restored at 8:45am.
(DT54-1 through DT54-5)
At some point early Monday morning Sept 26th (before 9am), the KQEH transmitter will be turned off for about 10 minutes for maintenance.
Because of the short duration, most TVs will automatically restore the signal once the transmitter is turned back on. However, a few viewers may need to do a rescan.
Xfinity/Comcast viewers and viewers of the DT9 and DT25 signals will not be affected by this work.
UPDATE: power was restored at 6:45am Tuesday. Most TVs will restore the channels automatically, but a few viewers may need to do a rescan.

late Monday/early Tuesday 9/13
The DT54 Over the Air signal will be shut down early Tuesday 9/13 morning around 1am for electrical maintenance work on the transmitter tower. The signal should be restored sometime between 4am and 6am.
Most receivers will automatically re-acquire the signal once it is restored. A few viewers may need to do a rescan to recover all the stations which transmit from that tower.
This will not affect Comcast/Xfinity customers, or viewers of our DT9 or DT25 signals.
Another TV station that shares the Monument Peak transmitter with KQEH (DT54.1 thru DT54.5) needs to perform maintenance on their equipment Monday, meaning that we will need to switch antennas and/or lower power for our OTA signal at various points, for the safety of the crew. Work is likely to begin around 11:30am, and should end by 5:30pm.
Most equipment should handle these changes without problem, but there is the possibility that a few (older) receivers may get confused. Should that happen, try manually deleting then re-acquiring the signal for DT54, or do a rescan to acquire a new lock on the signal after sunset, when everything should be back to normal.
