I am sorry to let you know this post-event but we had a transmitter part fail and it was replaced last Saturday which meant that we were off the air on Saturday morning. This was unforseen and we apologize for the interruption of our programming service for Saturday morning. Because we rebroadcast our HD-2 stream on our Short Mountain translator it was also off the air for the repairs. Everything is back up now and we will try to let you know in advance of any future planned transmitter maintenance.
