BMTD broadcasts from three sites in the Union County and Baker Valley area. Mt Fanny, over the town of Cove is our main broadcast site. Mt Harris east of Imbler and Beaver Mountain south of Baker City also broadcast most channels.
An outdoor UHF antenna will provide the best reception. A separate pre-amp may be needed depending upon your location. Visit www.antennaweb.org to learn more about the equipment needed for your location!
This is the most common type. We have a small inventory in our offices or we have names of independent contractors that can completely install and set up for you. Contact us for more information. Remember all who use the signal are obligated by Oregon Revised Statute ORS 354.690 1) When a district broadcasts television signals through a translator on a regular basis and any property within the district receives those signals, the owner of the property receiving the signal shall be liable to the district for the service charges. If you are a renter..ORS354.690.2 the statute reads, the owner of that property is liable to the district for a service charge; which will be through their annual county property tax.
