Where do you broadcast?

In addition to cable and satellite systems, KKCO’s family of channels is available for free over-the-air. The information below is intended to help you locate and enjoy these channels.

KKCO is run off two main transmitters in Western Colorado. Our Grand Junction tower site is located on top of the Colorado National Monument. In Montrose, it’s located on Raspberry Mountain, in the Uncompahgre National forest (see map). In addition, a smaller ‘translator’ site in Paiona is fed from the Montrose tower.

In the digital TV world one ‘signal’ can feed several high definition channels. KKCO runs NBC, MeTV and Telemundo.

While these transmitters cover a very broad area of Western Colorado, your proximity to them will determine your ability to pull in a viewable signal. To do so, you'll need a television and an antenna. Some viewers may be able to pull in a signal using the set-top "rabbit ears" type of antenna. Others may require a larger rooftop antenna, which should be aimed in the direction of the transmitter you're trying to access. In either case, a signal amplifier may also increase your chances of pulling in a viewable signal.

**Special Notice: Since June 13, 2009, full-power television stations nationwide have been required to broadcast exclusively in a digital format. KKCO continued to maintain an analog signal to viewers in Montrose County on analog channel 50. That signal was shut off in July of 2018.

We recommend a signal test to ensure you'll be able to pull in a viewable signal. If you have questions, email engineering@kkco11news.com or call us at 970-243-1111 and we’ll do our best to assist you.
