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

Don’t Miss it

July 23 – Once again SPRTV joins our Public Radio and TV (KCME, KUVO, RMPBS and KUNC) partners in cosponsoring the National Repertory Orchestra/Breckenridge Music Festival annual joint concert and free pre-concert reception at Art-on-a-Whim.  Also watch for another great fund-raising Sunday breakfast at the Elks Lodge in Silverthorne.

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

 

The channel 10.1 – 10.4 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 in fringe reception areas may experience marginal or no signal.

 

SPRTV is aware of the FM 89.7 MHz KUVO interference issue.  The problem is being investigated by the FCC.  Your patience is appreciated while we await its resolution.
