Outages Possible as New Generator Kicks On

Wednesday, April 01 2015

The lights could dim over Unalaska this week as utility workers test out the city’s newest diesel generator.

The fourth engine will be switched on Wednesday at 12 p.m. Utility director Dan Winters says it will operate at a quarter of its full capacity before workers begin ramping up the load.

"So that could take a day," Winters says. "Or if we see any problems during that process, we’ll shut it down, fix any issues we may have and then bring it back up and start over where we left off at."

Channel 8 has more than 30 years of video history in our archives. There are about 1900 tapes in our attic that are rapidly degrading. Tapes need to be digitized for our permanent archive, and for local viewing and use.We are in the midst of a campaign to raise $8,000 in order to digitize 10% of our tape collection. Digitizing tapes will allow us to use, share, and preserve this valuable content.  
What can you do?
  • All donations are appreciated.  Check out our campaign here.  Keep an eye on our fundraising campaign page, and our Facebook page, because we'll be posting more highlights from the archives throughout the next two months.  
  • We are looking for a broad support base from people who have been involved in Channel 8 over the years, including folks who have moved away from our community.  We couldn't possibly track down contact information for all of the friends of Channel 8, so we hope that YOU will share the link with your friends near and far in an effort to reach as many potential supporters as we possibly can.
