Tower Maintenance

Jan 3, 2017

On Wednesday, January 4, we performed some tower maintenance work.  This project was separate from our antenna replacement project, and involves the de-icing equipment, which allows us to broadcast during inclement weather. 

Today's work is complete, and we are back on-air.

Thank you for your patience!
