What We Do

We Welcome Valuable New Additions to the SPRTV Family

We are very pleased to announce the addition of Leigh Girvin as a part-time, community outreach staff person for SPRTV.  Former Executive Director of the Continental Divide Land Trust for many years she also brings a wealth of other non-profit and civic experience in Summit County.  Her addition was made possible by a grant from the Town of Frisco.                        

We also have two great new additions to our volunteer Board of Directors.  Accountant Jane Hankison will be our new Treasurer and consultant Don Craig brings a wide-range of urban planning and other experience as well as ham radio interest

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, 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 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

Feb 11 — KBCO is off the air. Something was bound to go, with all these high winds. We’ll get someone up there to check it out what the problem is as soon as we can.

Jan. 28 — Well, turns out the work around for KUVO wasn’t as good as we thought it would be and seems to be working only intermittently.  We apologize, but it looks like it will most likely remain like this until we can repair the antenna.

Jan 20 — KUVO is now back up, using a satellite internet link to receive the signal.

Jan.10 — KUVO is currently off the air and may be for a while. The satellite dish used to receive the signal was blown over and damaged by one of our recent wind storms. We will see what can be done. We also had problems with the internet system we were using to receive KCME, but have gone to a back up system, which seems to be eliminating the problem we had with the signal intermittently dropping out.

All of the other SPRTV translators are operating properly at this time.
