Idaho Public Television Transmitter Signal To be Interrupted Thursday Morning, Afternoon

The Idaho Public Television signal from the KIPT-Channel 13 transmitter will be interrupted Thursday morning (September 12) and early afternoon while engineers install a new piece of equipment.

The over-the-air signal will be down from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. throughout the Magic Valley and as well as the translators it serves at Hagerman, Burley, and the newest one on Picabo Mountain for the Bellevue area.

“The interruption is necessary to install a transfer switch for a new emergency back-up generator system, which is being installed for the KIPT transmitter,” says Rich Van Genderen, director of technology. “We apologize for the inconvenience to our viewers.”
