NOTES FROM THE KNPB TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT:

OFF-AIR NOTICE (updated 07/21/14):

There was a lightning strike on a power pole that feeds the power to Duck Hill where our translator is housed. This happened on the afternoon of Saturday, July 19. NVEnergy was able to replace the pole but the storms that came through on Sunday chased them off the site. With the massive power outage from south Carson City all the way to Stateline, they had their hands full getting home back to normal power. I was at the Duck Hill site this morning and they were at work restringing the pole and hanging the new transformer. They expect to have power restored to Duck hill by early this evening.

If you find you still do not have KNPB programming by tomorrow morning, please call me at 775-682-7825 and leave me a message. I do hope they can get power back to normal soon.

Thank you for watching KNPB.
