TV Signal Problems

You may experience problems with your TV Signal due to microwave interference during brief periods of the day, morning and night.   This is due to changes in the weather and extreme temperatures changes, as well as a phenomenon know as multi-path.  The District engineers also suspect that unlicensed broadcast signals outside the area play a role in the interference also.   Those outside sources have not been identified yet. The Elko Television District is currently working on a solution to these problems and hope to have them resolved within the next 60 days.
