Weather/fog/wind did NOT permit the Sutro Tower inspection work originally planned for last Saturday 7/09 (see post below). In addition, there is a day needed for installation of equipment. As a result, KQED is now scheduled to be on its auxillary antenna, for the safety of the climbing crew, both Thurs 7/14 & Fri 7/15, again weather/fog/wind permitting. They will start at 9am, plan to be done by 3pm each day. This work also might roll over into Mon 7/18.
This will affect some Over the Air viewers, who may need to rescan to restore their lock on our signal once the inpections are completed, and we return to our primary antenna at the top of the tower at the end of the afternoon. Cable will not be impacted in anyway.
KQET’s transmitter on Fremont Peak will shut down for a short time mid-day on Thurs 9/16 for fan belt maintenance. Exact outage time is not yet known.
While most digital tuners should handle a short interruption of apx 30 minutes without problem, some Over The Air viewers of DT25 may need to “rescan” or “scan add” to restore their tuner’s lock on our signal.
Comcast Cable customers should see no interruption in service. Other Cable and satellite companies will restore their signals as soon as the transmitter is back up.
