Ch 30.1/2/3 in La Pine and South County

Feb 1 2017 4:30 pm – Channels 30.1/2/3 have been restored.

Feb 1 2017 Update – Yesterday we attempted to head up Finley Butte and were unsuccesful at getting up the trail.  We have rented snowmobiles and will be heading back up to make another run today.  We will post more when we reach the translator and are able to assess the situation.  Thanks for your patience.

January 30th – We have been informed of a possible outage on our Ch. 30 translator servicing the La Pine area.  We will be heading that way as soon as possible to check on the issue.

Thank you for your patience and if you are picking us up OTA in the area you likely can receive the analog channels that are still transmitting from that same location.

We hope to have service restored by tomorrow, assuming we are able to safely get up the butte.
