Summit Public Radio & TV works on outage

Power to Summit Public Radio & TV’s electronics site on Bald Mountain has been out since June 3, and the organization is asking for support and patience as it works to restore over-the-air television and radio broadcasts.

According to a news release, volunteers have made four trips hiking up the mountain so far to locate the problem, with remaining snow making driving difficult. 

Replacing the power line has long been in the works, and the nonprofit hopes for complete construction in September. A solar backup can handle short and moderate outages, but not one of this length.

Summit Daily is embarking on a multiyear project to digitize its archives going back to 1989 and make them available to the public in partnership with the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection. The full project is expected to cost about $165,000. All donations made in 2023 will go directly toward this project.

Every contribution, no matter the size, will make a difference.
