Under normal conditions, the audio feed is brought from Billings via the KTVQ-TV
cross-state microwave system. The 5-element Yagi antenna at the lower right can
receive the KEMC signal directly from Billings as a backup to the microwave feed.
Also at the site, but not visible in this photo, are antennas for translators for
Reier Broadcasting and
The original YPR translator at the Quinn site was the TTC unit on the left.
It was replaced with the Inovonics tuner and Crown FM500 transmitter on July 29, 2004.
On October 12, 2004, the Inovonics tuner was replaced with a Fanfare FT-1AP tuner.
This photo is from a visit on January 2, 2007.
In order to have reliable backup power, and access to the KTVQ state-wide microwave
network, the YPR translator was moved to the
KTVQ-TV microwave building. The Fanfare tuner and Crown transmitter can be seen
in the lower part of the left rack, March 18, 2008.
