NORTHERN CALIFORNIA - A tower crew will be working at the KHSL tower site in Cohasset daily over the next few weeks, and Action News Now Chief Engineer Ken Rice says this will result in periods of low signal strength.

For safety reasons, Rice said, the power level of the transmitter needs to be reduced while crews are at work.

The tower crew is taking down the old antenna and feedline next to the new transmitter. They will continue this work over the next week or two, weather permitting.

Rice explained that Redding viewers who watch KHSL off of the Southfork translator will experience degraded signals during these times.

He said the output of the primary transmitter on Cohasset ridge feeds the input to the Southfork translator in Redding, so when power is reduced on the primary translator it has an impact on the Redding area signal as well.

It may not be possible to conduct a successful channel rescan on your TV during times of low power.

Tuesday was another beautiful day for northern California as a cold front began to bear down on the West Coast. We can expect increasing clouds late tonight, stronger breezes, and a chance for mountain rain and snow showers.
