What We Do

Read a nice recent article about SPRTV in conjunction with the Town of Silverthorne granting funds to SPRTV for infrastructure improvement.

SPRTV is a member-supported, all-volunteer, non-profit organization that rebroadcasts public and commercial FM radio, and over-the-air antenna TV signals that are naturally blocked by the splendid mountains surrounding Summit County, Colorado.

SPRTV is managed by an all-volunteer working Board.

As a community broadcasting service, we strive to provide diverse and previously unavailable programming that enriches everyone who lives, works and vacations here – with minimal overlap with local FM radio stations and cable/satellite TV providers.

Our stations originate in the Denver area, Eagle and Summit Counties. Signals are captured at our electronics site on Bald Mountain and rebroadcast into Summit County.

Our Challenges

Thank You

A heartfelt thank you goes to the 86 people who contributed nearly $10,000 to Summit Public Radio and Television on Colorado Gives Day 2015 — and to all of you who contributed throughout the year.


Our electronics site at 12,600 ft. on Bald Mountain provides great signal coverage for Summit County.

However, due to the high elevation and harsh weather, maintaining and improving our facility is costly.

Without the hard work of our volunteers and the financial generosity of our supporting members, half of the FM radio stations and nearly all the free, over-the-air antenna TV channels would disappear from Summit County.

We do not receive funding from the stations/channels we rebroadcast. Nor do we receive any annual operating funds from groups like NPR and PBS; or state, county or local town governments.

We rely 100% on donations from our listeners and viewers . . . Like you!

Current Status

March 27, 2016 — Our recent outage of most of our TV channels was overcome thanks to Jon Heckman of the High Country Snowmobile Club. Jon ventured up to our site in the midst of a snow storm and worked with our engineer, Gary Peterson, to resolve the problem. Many thanks to Jon and club president, Rich Holcroft. Fox remains on 10.4 for the time being in lieu of Anntenna, until we can restore it on 10.3.

SPRTV is aware of the 89.7 MHz KUVO FM translator interference issue.

The problem is under the highest order of investigation.

Your patience is appreciated while we await its resolution.
