Update 5:00 PM 5/13: As of this afternoon we have completed installing, testing and restoring our HD broadcast on 88.1, 88.1 HD1 & HD2 frequencies.
Update 11:30 AM 4/30: We have received a ship date on the new equipment of 5/6. Updated estimate for restoration of services is 5/15 COB.
Update 2:00PM 4/18: The delivery of replacement parts was delayed due to weather. Once received and installed we were able to determine that another component had failed in the HD system. Due to age of equipment we have opted to replace the entire HD generation system with up to date hardware instead of investing in a 10+ year old system. We have placed the order and waiting for shipping information. We hope to have HD restored by end of month.
Update 12:00 pm 4/5: We expect to have the needed replacement parts in hand on 4/9 and hope to have services restored by 4/10.
Update 3:30 pm 4/1: Due to a hardware failure we are currently broadcasting analog only on 88.1. This means 88.1 HD2 will be off air. We are in contact with the manufacturer and suppliers to get replacement parts. We will update this post when we have a time frame for shipping.
We will be performing transmitter maintenance this morning at our broadcast plant on High Top. From this location we broadcast our primary 88.1, 88.1 HD1 & HD2 frequencies. This may result in brief interruptions in service. We hope to restore normal operation by mid-day.
We will update this post as we have more information.
