FM Transmitter Work Today October 29, 2013
HEADS UP: FM Transmitter work today.
Expect our over the air radio signal to be interrupted for 15 minutes at around 10:30 and again at around 12:30. You *will* be able to access our stream at http://ideastations.org/radio/stream/hd1
Details:As part of the process to replace our current satellite-dependent studio-transmitter link with a more reliable and cost-effective system, at approximately 10:30 Tuesday morning, the 88.9 WCVE transmitter will be taken off the air for a 15-minute period to test the new system. After about two hours of testing with the new system, lines will be unplugged and re-plugged into the current equipment, requiring another 15 minutes of down time.
Throughout the process, our Heathsville and Chase City transmitters will not be affected, and both of our audio streams will continue to be available at ideastations.org. The Virginia Voice signal will be off the air for the duration of the test period, from approximately 10:30 until the old system is plugged back in about about 12:30.
**UPDATE (October 30, 2013 10:55 a.m.) - we were not able to complete this system update and testing yesterday. We will let you know as soon as we know when the update will be performed.
