KBYU Eleven’s signal originates from the Harris Fine Arts Center on the Brigham Young University campus in Provo, Utah, and is sent from a digital transmission tower located on Farnsworth Peak in the Oquirrh Mountain range about 18 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. That single transmitter, however, cannot reach throughout the state due in part to Utah’s mountainous nature. Translator stations are used to cover the more remote or sparsely populated areas of the state.
A translator station is a miniature television transmitter that repeats the original signal, thus providing coverage for areas outside the range of the transmitter. These stations are owned and operated by many different entities, including county and local governments, corporations, and other television stations. Eleven owns and operates seven translators throughout Utah. Almost all translator stations use different channels than the original signal; for example, Eleven can be found on channel 38 in Blanding.
Below is a list of Eleven translators. Due to the digital transition
, some areas currently have two translators, since the federal government has given translator stations an extended date to switch to a digital transmission. This means that some stations have already switched to digital while others have not. Whether a station is digital or not can be determined from the “–D” in the station ID.
This translator list was updated by Eleven in July 2009 and is as accurate as possible, since Eleven does not own most of the stations. If you see an error or know of any changes please contact us.
