KOIN on Low Power After Fire Knocks Portland Stations Off-Air

koin-transmitter-fire-021014Portland CBS affiliate KOIN, along with Sinclair owned ABC affiliate KATU and Tribune owned CW affiliate KRCW were knocked off the air yesterday by a fire.

According to KOIN the fire in an electrical room in a building in Tualatin, OR, spread to transformer lines before being put out quickly.

The LIN owned station said over-the-air and satellite signals were affected, but the cable broadcast was not. Service was partially restored a little over an hour after it was disrupted.

Viewers living far from the transmitter site may not be getting KOIN’s signal since the station said it’s been running on low power since the fire.

KOIN said it has no estimate on when full power would be restored.
