Update Tuesday, 3:20pm C.T.: WKPB-FM is now back on the air following the replacement of electronic components that failed on Sunday. There may be some intermittent signal interference for a day or two while everything is fine-tuned. The onset of windy, icy weather is delaying progress this afternoon.
Thanks for your patience, and thanks to our engineers for staying on top of this!
