Age of Stealth (Episode #104)

KQED 9: Tue, Nov 3, 2009 -- 9:00 PM

The final hour examines the computer age avionics and stealth planes that are all but invisible to the enemy eyes. Over the trenches of World War I, planes had been indispensable. Since that time, developers have worked endlessly to make planes harder to spot and shoot down. The program explores the computer technology and new materials that have not only transformed air combat, but also positioned the world's most advanced air forces for a future where in-cockpit pilots may no longer be necessary.

Jet Age (Episode #103)

KQED World: Sun, Nov 1, 2009 -- 5:00 AM

Part 3 examines the vital arms race and the invention of the jet engine. In the later days of World War II, Britain and Germany feverishly advanced early dreams of a jet airplane that would revolutionize existing airplane roles and create an entirely new generation of mission-specific machines. The program profiles the designers, test pilots and combat crews who took huge risks to push the boundaries of sound and space.

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]

    • Wed 10/15 morning: KQED Plus (KQEH) Over the Air signal down

(DT54.1 through 54.5) KQED Plus’ Over the Air transmission is currently off air via our KQEH transmitter on Monument Peak northeast of San Jose. Technicians are working on the problem. No current estimate regarding how long this will exist. We […]

    • KQET (DT25) Over the Air: Wed 8/27

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.
