Corvallis Translator

Solution As part of an FCC-mandated frequency change, the KATU translator on Peterson Butte serving the Corvallis area, has been changed from UHF Channel 47 to VHF Channel 8, effective 7:00pm 12/18/18. It will be necessary to do a rescan in order to receive the signal. After doing a channel scan, it should still show up as Virtual Channel 2 on television receivers.

Since the new VHF antenna pattern is much narrower than the old UHF antenna pattern, it should provide good coverage for Corvallis. Albany, Scio, and Lebanon may not receive the signal as well as before, or in some cases, at all.
