What We Do

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

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 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

January 2015 — SPRTV’s volunteer board is hard at work planning and seeking funding for a major project to replace the power line to the Baldy Mountain electronics site. A $50,000 grant from the Summit Foundation announced in January provides a major boost to the effort.

January 27, 2015 — We are again encountering intermittent problems with KUVO. We are working with KUVO to try and resolve the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience. All other stations are working normally.
