KOIN TV triples output transmit power

Final power output will be completed in the first quarter of 2019

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- On Saturday October 20, 2018 KOIN TV tripled the output transmit power of our transmitter.  

Included in the upgrade is a new antenna that was installed higher up on our tower located on the west hills of Portland. This upgrade will help many viewers in our viewing area receive our signal.  

If you have not been able to receive KOIN TV in the past, please re-scan your television set to find our signal. Details on how to re-scan are below. 

This upgrade is not the final power output, which will be completed in the first quarter of 2019.

You can continue to watch KOIN News on KOIN.com, plus you can also watch KOIN TV and CBS programming using  “CBS All Access”

How to rescan

To rescan your TV, select "scan" or "autotune" on the TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process. Instructions are usually available by pressing the "set-up" or "menu" buttons on the remote control. 

Main points
>> Rescan your TV if you only use an antenna
>> No need to rescan if you watch via cable or satellite
>> KOIN will remain on Channel 6
