Colorado PBS Stations Suggest DTV After Antenna Damages

Jan 26, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Some PBS stations in Colorado are urging viewers to make the switch to DTV reception early in order to receive station signals after the analog antenna of Denver’s KBDI was damaged by heavy winds, TVNewsday reports. A spokeswoman for the station said repairs could take as long as four weeks to complete, the site says. Additionally, an analog transmitter for the Rocky Mountain PBS station KRMJ failed at the end of the year and may not be fixed, the site say.

  1. The same thing happened in Erie, PA, with PBS station WQLN-TV54. The damage was bad, so they were broadcasting exclusively in DTV. When the cost of a new analog transmitter was too high, they just decided to make the switch early. Since then, it’s broadcasted exclusively in DTV. It’d be a waste to spend money on repairs of an analog transmitter, even though the date is now June-something.
