Spokane television station KQUP, which calls itself UPN 24 because it broadcasts United Paramount Network’s programming, plans to expand by adding a transmitter in the Moscow-Pullman area.

Currently, KQUP’s signal mostly reaches television viewers in Spokane and Kootenai counties. The new transmitter, which is scheduled to become operational next month, will allow the station to reach about 65,000 viewers in the Palouse potentially, says Rod Hall, KQUP’s general manager.

In the Moscow-Pullman area, KQUP will broadcast on Channel 24 and will be carried as Channel 18 on cable.

“We are excited to be the only Spokane-market commercial station to have a full-power transmitter in the Moscow-Pullman area,” says Hall.

KQUP began broadcasting in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene area about a year and half ago. It’s owned by Equity Broadcasting Corp., of Little Rock, Ark.

Cable subscribers in Spokane County can watch KQUP on Channel 24. In Kootenai County, KQUP can be viewed on Cable channel 16. KQUP broadcasts its over-the-air signal in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene area on Channel 47.

Hall says KQUP is in the process of adding its signal to two satellite systems here. He says within 60 days KQUP will be on the Dish Network.

He also says improved technology soon will allow cable subscribers in Sandpoint to receive KQUP.
