Work Underway Near Alliance on NET’s KTNE Radio Antenna

LINCOLN, Neb. (Oct. 19, 2020) – For those who listen to NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, in the Alliance area, work is underway to improve radio service with a new antenna.

The new antenna will offer a more reliable FM and HD service for the KTNE listening area.

Removal of the old and installation of the new antenna should last about a week. During this time, KTNE-FM will be off the air. This work should not affect television.

For the most up-to-date information, call the NET Help Desk at 800-698-3426 or email customerservice@netNebraska.org for assistance.

For those unable to listen to radio during this installation period, visit netNebraska.org to listen live or visit our library of live and on-demand programs and podcasts. The free NET Nebraska App can also be downloaded on mobile devices for live and on-demand viewing.

The KTNE radio coverage area includes the counties of Arthur, Banner, Box Butte, Cheyenne, Dawes, Deuel, Garden, Kimball, Morrill, Scotts Bluff and Sioux.
