TIA Ukiah - The Television Improvement Association
Help keep Ukiah's community television on-the-air. Contribute!
Feb 2014: Ukiah Viewer, Please Contribute
TIA has not received enough contributions to cover our power bill for the TV transmitters, let alone our annual insurance costs. Obviously, we cannot survive indefinitely this way.
We've started running the scrolling message again to help educate viewers and make them aware that Ukiah TV stations need the financial support of the community. These stations are, after all, on the air for the good of the community. They provide an alternative to other more costly TV services.
We realize that the TIA channels aren't perfect. We've installed a new antenna to help improve NBC which has been difficult to receive. The antenna cost $1000 and will took our volunteers a day to get installed and working. We think it will help, but that's just one small project out of many that require both time and money.
If you watch our Ukiah stations, even if you only watch PBS, please press the contribute button and help keep Ukiah's TIA TV on the air.
About Digital TV in Ukiah:
TIA has begun digital transmissions for various SF channels, including KQED. To receive the signals select the channel (antenna) rescan on your digital DV set or converter box.
If you have a good antenna, you will notice that the picture has improved a lot! For many viewers, it's a perfect picture now.
However, at times, TV signals may "break up into little boxes" or be lost (no signal). Usually this is temporary, but depending on the weather, the condition could last a few hours or days. Unfortunately, this is how digital TV operates. That's considered technical "progress".
We work hard to keep as many stations on air as we can!
