Here's an update on our transmitter problems.  The exciter on the analog transmitter needs repair.  Because it is down we are using our hd transmitter in analog mode to restore service.  This is not as powerful a transmitter so the signal is not quite as strong as usual.  The parts should be here anytime to allow us to restore everything back to normal and we will keep you updated as we hope to  finish this work this week.
