Monument Mountain KSPS 7.1/7.2/7.3/7.4 on CH-19
Communities Served: Quincy – Moses Lake
There are two translators collocated on Monument Hill near Quincy. These two translators feed Quincy, Moses Lake and the surrounding areas. One translator carries four Spokane primary stations in SD including, KSPS 7.1, KREM 2.1, KHQ 6.1, and KAYU 28.1. The other translator, which KSPS owns carries KSPS 7.2, 7.3 and 7.4, in addition KXLY is carried with their secondaries on this shared translator as well. Recently, we received a call from a viewer in Moses Lake concerning the translator carrying the Spokane primary stations. The viewer reported that all the primary Spokane Stations, including KSPS 7.1, had gone away, which meant the LocalTel Translator Transmitter carrying the four Spokane primary stations in SD has failed.
KSPS Engineering reached out to LocalTel Engineering on Monday 5/4 and again on Thursday 5/7 but have yet to get a response regarding the issue. Based on the fact that we have not heard from any other viewers in either Moses Lake or Quincy in the last few weeks we believe the issue was isolated to the viewer who originally reported the outage in early May.
If you are a KSPS viewer in Quincy or Moses Lake and you are having issues receiving our over the air signal please let us know. Call KSPS Engineering at (509) 443-7687.

Communities Served: Coeur D’ Alene
The recent KSPS translator transmission issue at our Canfield Butte site has been addressed. If you are a KSPS Viewer in the Coeur D' Alene area who watches the station via an over the air antenna and you are still having issues receiving KSPS please call KSPS Engineering at (509) 443-7687.
Following the installation of a new transmission antenna at the Canfield Butte site this past December the transmission signal of KSPS from the Canfield site has been significantly reduced compared to what it was prior to the installation of the new antenna. As a result, some over the air viewers of KSPS in Coeur D' Alene and the surrounding area may find it difficult to receive KSPS via antenna. The new antenna was install by Idaho Public Television, who owns the translator site. At this time, Idaho Public Television Engineering is working with the antenna manufacturer to address the on going issue.
If you are presently a KSPS viewer in the Coeur D' Alene area who is having issues receiving KSPS over the air via antenna please let us know by calling KSPS Engineering at (509) 443-7687.
KSPS 7.1/7.2/7.3/7.4 on CH-16
Communities Served: Craigmount – Cottonwood – Grangeville
At this time neither KREM or KHQ are available via the Cottonwood-Butte Translator site. KHQ is working on a solution to return service to the area this summer. KREM at this time has no plans to return service at this time.
Recently it was reported by viewers that they had lost the KSPS over the air signal. One viewer said we had been down for 2 weeks. Unfortunately, our remote monitoring equipment for the site did not indicate that there was an outage. On Tuesday the KSPS Field Engineer traveled to the site to investigate the problem. Upon arrival he found that a piece of equipment downstream from our transmitter was not functioning properly. The equipment was reset and with it the KSPS over the air signal, which includes KSPS 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 7.4, was restored. While at the site the Field Engineer made some wiring changes so in the event the equipment downstream from the KSPS transmitter should fail again we can now quickly reset it by remote control from the station, which should significantly reduce down time in the future. Please Note: If you are a KSPS Viewer who receives KSPS over the air via the Cottonwood-Butte translator site and you should lose our signal, please let us know by calling KSPS Engineering @ (509) 443-7687.
