Signals go digital

By Bill Rautenstrauch

The Observer

The Blue Mountain Translator District on Thursday completed its transition to a digital format.

Ken Patterson of the district said that with the conversion complete, people with digital televisions will need to re-scan for channels, and those with older, analog sets will need to get converter boxes.

There shouldn’t be any need to replace antennas, though.

“The older antennas will work,” Patterson said.

The translator district provides over-the-air television to about 1,200 subscribers in Baker and Union counties.

A transmitter on Beaver Mountain sends signals to Baker County, while Union County is served by transmitters on Mount Fanny and Mount Harris.

Patterson said that people using the Mount Harris transmitter may have to search for their channels because they
 are now on a different location in the spectrum.

In other news about the Blue Mountain Translator District, Patterson said he is currently seeking volunteers who would like to sit on the board of directors.

He also said he encourages people
who do not subscribe but who get TV
signals from the transmitters to sign up
as subscribers.

For more information, call Patterson at 541-786-1788.
