Engineers Upgrading Translator Equipment in Eastern Idaho

August 17 2006 by Peter Morrill

Beginning August 17, 2006, over-the-air viewers in the Georgetown area will begin receiving Idaho Public Television on Channel 15. The previous channel was 69.

Beginning in early August, over-the-air viewers in Lava Hot Springs will begin receiving IdahoPTV on Channel 14. The previous channel was 59.

Starting August 30, over-the-air viewers in Mackay should notice improved signal quality with the upgrade of our translator to channel 15. The previous channel was 17.

Beginning in mid-August, over-the-air viewers in Salmon will begin receiving IdahoPTV on Channel 49. The previous channel was 57.

And finally, as viewers in the downtown Rexburg area have long known, IdahoPTV's KISU-DT signal from East Butte is obscured by Menan Butte, making reception difficult. But beginning in early September, newly installed equipment will make it possible for us to provide free over-the-air digital coverage on channel 43 to the Rexburg metro area.

These upgrades should provide an improved signal and picture quality for viewers who receive our signal over the air in these communities.

These improvements have been made possible from a grant from the State of Idaho as a result of action taken by the 2006 Legislature.
