Bringing Connectivity to Pitkin County
What We Do
Do you listen to the radio in the morning for the latest snow report? Maybe you watch the evening news to catch up on anything you missed. We build and maintain the translators that provide these over-the-air TV and FM radio stations.
What is Telecoms
Telecommunications (or telecoms for short) is the practice of communication over a distance by cable, telegraph, telephone, or broadcasting.
Our team ensures the Pitkin County Regional Emergency Dispatch Center, law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services, search & rescue and other public safety partners have the communications infrastructure needed to respond to any emergency.
Updates & Outages
Internet Outage from Aspen to Basalt
Due to an internet outage from Aspen to Basalt telecommunications services are down. We are working to restore service and hope to be back in the broadcasting business shortly.
Audio Problems with 7 & 9 and 2 & 20 completely out
All Channels should be functioning properly now as of 7/14/22. We have been having power outages in the Roaring Fork Mid Valley that has created problems with our internet feed of 7, 9, 2, and 20. We are currently working to fix the problem but seem to have run into more gremlins than anticipated.
