What We Do

Needed: SPRTV Community Outreach Staff Person

Would you or someone you know like to get paid to spend 10-20 hours per month promoting the free over-the-air TV and radio that you love? SPRTV is looking to hire a part-time Community Outreach Coordinator. This person would organize special events, speak to community organizations, promote us on social media and develop and carry out other efforts to promote awareness and use of SPRTV, increase membership and foster funding sources. Contact Terese Keil tkpropmgmt@aol.com for more information.

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

May 18, 2016 — KCME has corrected their hiccups. Thank you!

May 8, 2016 — KCME listeners may find the station a little “choppy” from very short outages. The station thinks the problem may be at their end.

The channel 10 TV translator (KMGH/ABC, KWGN/CW; KDVR/FOX and KDVR/Antenna TV) is operating at lower than normal power due to a technical difficulty. Viewers with strong signals may not notice any problem, but those on the fringe may experience weak or no signal. It may come back strong, but otherwise repair or replacement will have to wait ’till this summer.

March 27, 2016 — The recent TV channel outages were overcome thanks to Colin Scollard and Alistair of Mountain Multi-vision & Sound followed a few days later by Jon Heckman of the High Country Snowmobile Club. Both parties ventured up to our site by snowmobile and worked with SPRTV engineer Gary Peterson to resolve the problems. Many thanks to Colin and Alistair, and Jon and HCSC president, Rich Holcroft. FOX remains on Channel 10.4 in lieu of Antenna TV until FOX is restored on Channel 10.3.

December 23, 2015 — SPRTV is aware of the 89.7 MHz KUVO interference issue. The problem is under investigation by the FCC. Your patience is appreciated while we await its resolution.
