WEKH

Judy posted this on the website at WEKU.fm regarding last week’s Eastern Standard,  “Thank you for your recent program on the projected effects of climate change. I was able to hear only a portion of the program as I was in transit to a meeting and listening on my car radio."

We’ve had another major problem with our transmitter at 90.9 FM. It went off the air last Tuesday morning during a thunderstorm and our engineer worked two full days trying to get it back to full power. Sadly, Phil Hayes was unable to do so and apparently the outdated and elderly equipment has passed the terminal stage.

    

The signal is back on the air operating at very low-power until further notice. Thankfully, we are able to provide service once again to immediate Hazard/Perry County area and communities nearby.

Transmitter problems that developed over the weekend have taken 90.9 FM WEKH off the air. 

 

Engineers are working on diagnosing the problem and getting the station back on the air.

First up, an announcement regarding technical matters.  For the next few weeks, we are likely to have outages on 90.9 WEKH out of Hazard as a result of tower work being done by our “landlord” KET. 

These outages will happen during daylight hours, on days when weather permits work on the tower and they are unavoidable due to the nature of the work as a matter of safety for the tower crews.

You’ll find more information on the WEKU Facebook page and at WEKU dot FM.

We just thought you'd like to know what it takes sometimes to keep a network of public radio stations on the air.  Follow this link to the WEKU Facebook page for a complete photo album with more shots from a trip up Buffalo Mountain in Hazard, KY. to put WEKH (90.9 FM) back on the air.
