A construction project in the area of the television broadcast transmission towers on South Mountain in Phoenix will cause intermittent signal issues for some 3TV (KTVK) and CBS 5 (KPHO) viewers until October.

The signal power for both 3TV (KTVK) and CBS 5 (KPHO) will be periodically lowered substantially for the safety of the construction workers.

This is mandated by law.

The signal power will be lowered from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the next few months and will affect some viewers who receive 3TV/CBS 5 with an antenna.

This does not affect anyone receiving 3TV/CBS 5 via satellite, cable or internet streaming.

Primetime television hours will be broadcast at full power.

Thank you for your patience regarding this matter.
