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 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

October 4 —  The channel 10 transmitter is back and broadcasting. Our channel lineup is back to normal but with Fox on 10.4 and NBC News Channel 20 on 10.3

September 18 — We have sent the channel 10 transmitter off for upgrading. We expect to have it back in about a week and then should have a more reliably strong signal this winter. For this week, we are airing ABC on channel 8.2, but will be without Fox, Channel 2 and NBC Channel 20.

Aug 1 — Attention classical music lovers: You may have already noticed that KCME is coming in a little stronger or that you can receive it more places as you drive around the county. This is because the station was able to enhance the signal that they send to us, allowing us to send you a significantly stronger signal. If it didn’t quite come in on your home radio before, give it another try.
