***UPDATE*** King Mountain Transmitter FIXED!
Posted By admin On December 26, 2012 @ 9:00 am In Announcements | Comments Disabled
“MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!” says our engineer. We are receiving the King Mountain signal in addition to the Medford Baldy signal. If you are still experiencing issues, let us know.
Weather permitting, our engineers will travel by helicopter to King Mountain this weekend, tentatively Saturday. Our goal is to get the Transmitter back on air by Sunday evening.
Our joint expedition with KDRV to King Mountain today was unsuccessful. We were unable to reach the transmitter due to deep and soft snow conditions. The Snow Cat does not have a plow. If you have access to snow equipment–plow or snowmobile or ??–and would like to volunteer to get our engineer to the site, please give us a call. 541-779-0808 ext. 225.
Due to severe weather and snow conditions last week, SOPTV lost service from its main Ch-8 Transmitter on King Mountain last Friday at approx 8:30pm. Severe snow and weather conditions are preventing access to the mountain site to repair the transmitter. Due to these weather issues, our engineers will try to reach the site via Snow Cat later this week–tentatively Thursday for the best weather window to get there. This outage mainly affects our viewers who use over the air antennas. You can try rescanning for Channel 42, which is still working. Thank you for your patience while we try to resolve this issue.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and will restore services ASAP.
