New Digital Translator on Grizzly Mtn

Today we installed a new digital translator on Grizzly Mtn servicing Prineville/Madras and the surrounding areas. The translator is channel 20 and will provide the following services:

KFXO-HD, Fox Central Oregon – Ch. 20.1
KQRE-SD, Telemundo Oregon Central – Ch. 20.2

The channel 27 translator located on the same site has been reassigned the following services:

KTVZ-HD, NBC News Channel 21 – Ch. 27.1
NTVZ-SD, Central Oregon’s CW Network – Ch. 27.2
KFXO-SD, Fox Central Oregon – Ch. 27.3

The other translator on this site (Channel 22) is still functional. However, the new channel 20 translator is operating at a significantly higher power and will provide a more robust service for the area. In order to receive the new digital service and update your existing channel 27 guide you will need to perform a channel rescan on your Digital Television Tuner or Digital Converter Box.
