TV/FM Translator Services

The Pitkin County TV/FM Translator maintains and operates a mountain top translator system that re-broadcasts FM radio and television signals to residents of Pitkin County and other portions of the Roaring Fork Valley.

Maintenance and Outages:

1/6/17 - Upper Red (Aspen) Translator: The translator for 101.5 FM serving Aspen and Snowmass Village has failed. We have pulled out the unit for service and repair. We estimate that this could take up to two weeks to repair and place back in service.

12/6/17 - Redstone (Elephant) Translator: TV channels 2 and 20 are experiencing low power output due to aging equipment. We plan to completely rebuild the site in 2018 and will install new equipment at that time.
