County TV District May Have Channel Disruptions
MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (June 14, 2021) –There are scheduled maintenance projects taking place in Phoenix for the ABC-15 KNXV and the NBC KPNX-12 TV networks. Because of this, there may be temporary service disruptions to those channels and sub-channels. The reason for the maintenance on the Phoenix side is so tower climbers on South Mountain can climb and not be exposed to harmful excess RF radiation so they “power down” their transmission to about 10% of the normal broadcast power.
This directly affects the Mohave County TV District, which is 89 miles from South Mountain to the pickup point that delivers to the main County hub at Hualapai Mountain.
Curiously, in the past, ABC-15 has powered down with no noticeable effects to the TV District. As in the case of NBC KPNX-12, their power down process has been very noticeable. They (KPNX) will be doing more work. Everything is being done to minimize customer impact until the maintenance is completed. It is expected that all the work will be done within two weeks and services will resume as normal.
