Recent TV Reception Issues, Projects and Updates

Scheduled Maintenance Newport- Otter Crest TV and Alsea River Cable
When: Wednesday, July 2nd 
Duration: 6 hours
Impact: TV translator will be down. 
Day Wireless will be performing antenna work which is in the aperture of our transmit antennas. Due to safety requirements, we (and the other 4 TV stations there) need to turn our translator(s) off.

Newberg- Ch 32 Officially Off Air
When: Monday, July 1st 
Duration: New Channel Switch Pending
Impact: 
Last week KNMT-TV in Portland rechanneled to CH 32 (FCC-mandated repack). Because their transmitter overpowers our translator in Newberg, OPB viewers have lost signal there. Since KNMT is a full service station and OPB’s CH 32 is a low power transmitter, FCC rules require us to accept the interference and change our operations in order not to interfere with them. 

We are working on acquiring a new frequency and the equipment to support a channel change, but that will likely take around a month. In the interim, some viewers in Newberg may be able to pick up CH 10 out of Portland, but that is largely dependent on exact geographical location.
