No OTA of KPBS-TV (all 4 ch) since 8/27.
News is scarce, but "unplanned maintenance" sounds a lot like "transmitter system failure."
...any insider info out there?
Transmissions back on early afternoon of 8/28.
I just stumbled into new content on KBNT: 17.3 ("Stadium" sports net) and 17.4 ("Comet" sci-fi), physical ch. 25.
