Farnsworth Peak is located approximately 18 miles southwest of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, near the northern end of the Oquirrh Mountain range (pronounced "Oh-Kerr") The name "Farnsworth Peak" actually refers to at least three seperate sites in close proximity to each other along the ridge.
The so-called "Big" Farnsworth site is the highest, northernmost and
oldest of the sites. This is the site of most of the digital TV
transmitters that serve the Salt Lake City area, some low-power TV
stations, and the majority of the Salt Lake
FM broadcast stations. Immediately south of "Big" Farnsworth is
KSTU site. A bit farther down the ridge is the
"Little Farnsworth" site, home of several other TV stations and a
myriad of land-mobile services.
This site is named after Philo T. Farnsworth, one of the inventors of electronic television.
