KCOY 12’s main transmitter at Tepesquet Peak is running at 20% power, with 800 watts as of 6 p.m. Sunday. Engineers continue to work on restoring the transmitter to full power. When that is complete, this story will be updated. Some viewers may be able to re-scan their television sets to receive KCOY’s digital signal from Cuesta Peak in the interim.
The KCOY Main Transmitter on Tepesquet Peak has a fault which has kept it off line since Saturday evening. Our engineering team has been working to correct the issue since that time; however, the issue has not yet been resolved as of 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
OTA (over-the-air) Viewers in Lompoc, Santa Ynez and parts of Santa Maria are likely impacted.
OTA (over-the-air) Viewers in other parts of the DMA can pick up the over-the-air signal originating from KCOY’s two other transmission facilities (Cuesta Peak and TV Hill in South Santa Barbara).
None of the MVPD’s (Charter, Comcast, COX, Dish or DirecTV) customers are impacted.
We will update viewers online as soon as new information becomes available.
