In an effort to add a bit of local flavor to the site, I asked Jon Thorwaldson (J.T.) to share his recent experiences with the members. I hope you enjoy his writing as much as I did!
IT’S GOOD TO BACKUP WHEN MOVING FORWARD!
As you all know, a good backup plan includes backup equipment. If that equipment doesn’t exist, one failure can turn catastrophic real quick. That is what happened at KPHO TV almost a year ago when we lost a piece of our transmission line. This was actually the only loss of this kind that has happened to us in the thirty six years I have been here. Being off-air for more than a few minutes never turns out to be a good thing. To help improve the odds of that not happening again, KPHO has now finished the installation of a new auxiliary transmitter and antenna.
