Power was restored to Summit Public Radio & TV’s electronics site on Wednesday afternoon, June 22. 

Service to the site on Bald Mountain had been out since June 3, and now five FM radio stations and all antenna-served television are back up and running. The fault near the top of the aging power line was located at an elevation of approximately 12,000 feet. 

According to a news release, Summit Public Radio & TV is continuing to work with Summit County government, the town of Breckenridge and the U.S. Forest Service to install more replacement power lines.
