How To Receive Digital Television Signals

TV Channel Guide


Television Service

USE THE SCAN FEATURE ON YOUR DIGITAL TELEVISION OR CONVERTER BOX TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE RECEIVING ALL AVAILABLE CHANNELS.

The over-the-air television translator system provides exceptional quality digital television signals. Most areas receive up to 20 channels including Discover, Rocky Mountain PBS, Create, ABC, NBC, CBS, CW, FOX, ME-TV, NASA and more. There are two local channels, Crested Butte TV (10.1) and Gunni-Guide TV (12.2). For a complete listing of channels available in your area please refer to the TV Channel Guide below.

TV CHANNEL LISTINGS

  • An on-air TV Guide is available on the translator system on channel 12.1 in most areas.
  • View TV Listings online at GunniGuide.tv Listings
  • You may set up customized online TV Channel Listings at TitanTV.com. For your convenience, here are step-by-step instructions on how to set up your own Titan TV account.

HOW TO RECEIVE DIGITAL TELEVISION SIGNALS

To receive over-the-air digital television signals, you will need a digital TV or a digital-to-analog converter box for your analog TV.  To obtain the digital signals available in your area, use the scan feature on your digital television or converter box. If you receive duplicate channels during the scan process, delete the weakest signal. The TV Channel Guide below shows the channels available in your area.

The quality of the pictures you receive is directly related to the equipment and installation used to receive the signals. A good quality outdoor VHF/UHF antenna is required in most areas. The antenna should be securely mounted outdoors and pointed toward the District's translator site serving your area. If your antenna and coaxial cable is more than 10 years old, it may need to be replaced. Rabbit ears and small digital antennas, and attic installations, may not be sufficient to receive the over-the-air signals. Systems that split signals may experience reduced signal quality.

  • Outdoor VHF/UHF Antenna Recommendations:
    Following is information for outdoor antennas that perform well in receiving the over-the-air digital television signals. To receive signals in the Gunnison area, select an antenna that receives low band VHF channels 2-6, as well as the UHF channels 7-69.

Antennas available locally:

AntennaCraft, Color King Model 5884
Boom style, 58”
Performs well in Gunnison and other areas

AntennaCraft, Model AC9
Boom style, 30”
Undergoing testing (contact Paragon Computers for more info. 641-6438)

Channel Master, Stealth, Model CM3010
Compact profile
Not suited for Gunnison area (does not receive low band VHF signals)
Performs well in other areas

RCA, Model 751

Other antennas:

Winegard: Metrostar MS-1000 (non-amplified)
Compact omnidirectional design receives signals from 360 degrees
Not suited for Gunnison area (does not receive low band VHF signals)
Performs well in other areas

This is not, by any means, intended to be a complete list of antennas that may perform well for this purpose. In fact, many older existing boom style antennas work fine; a “digital” antenna is not required to receive the signals. An outdoor installation with good connections and coax cable in good condition is key. 

  • DTV Converter Boxes:
    A digital-to-analog converter box is necessary if your television does not receive digital signals. 

Antennas and DTV boxes are available locally and on the web.

For questions regarding antennas or how to receive over-the-air television signals, please contact the Operations Manager, Bill Cote, at 641-9148 or via email at: tech@gcmetrec.com.
