Canfield-Butte Mountain: KSPS 7.1/7.2/7.3/7.4 on CH-26
Communities Served: Coeur D’ Alene

The antenna work at the Canfield-Butte site has been completed. Unfortunately, with the completion of the project its been determined that the transmission of KSPS from this location is significantly lower than it was prior to the installation of a new antenna at the site that we share with Idaho Public Television. At this time we are looking into the issue with Idaho Public Television. Due to the lower power transmission issue some over the air viewers in the Coeur D' Alene area may find it difficult to receive us. If that is the case please let us know by calling KSPS Engineering at (509) 443-7687.

The other issue caused by lower power transmission from the Canfield/Butte site is with the cable company in Coeur D' Alene, Spectrum. We are presently working with Spectrum to receive our over air signal directly from Spokane rather than from Canfield, which should greatly improve the reliability of the KSPS Program Service on the Cable System.

Sandpoint Baldy Mountain: KSPS 7.1/7.2/7.3/7.4 on CH-23
Communities Served: Sandpoint – Spirit Lake

The KSPS primary transmitter is now back on line at the Sandpoint Baldy Translator Site.

Back in August the air conditioning system in the building at the site was intermittently failing to maintain proper operating temperatures within the building. As a result we had to turn off our primary transmitter and put our lower powered backup transmitter on the air. Due to operating at reduced power there were reception issues for some of our viewers watching us over the air via antenna. Unfortunately, given the building is owned and operated by Avista Corp. we could not return our main transmitter to air until Avista addressed the HVAC system, which they were finally able to do this week. Yesterday (Wednesday 11/6) we put our main transmitter back on the air. KSPS viewers around the area who watch KSPS via antenna should now be receiving the station. If not viewers should try a re-scan. If after performing a re-scan KSPS is still not available please call KSPS Engineering at (509) 443-7687.
