UPDATE: today's scheduled shutdown is not going to happen, due to a nesting osprey up on our tower.  The climbers have to wait until winter when he/she will leave.

------------------------------

This Saturday (Sept.27) beginning around 1pm and possibly lasting until sunset, our 102.7FM signal will be either off the air, or operating at reduced power.

AT&T Wireless needs to perform work on their cellphone antennas just below our FM transmitter antenna on the tower.  To protect the tower climbers' health and safety, we have to reduce power.   They're not sure how long they will need; it might be just an hour or two, it might take several hours...although we're hopeful that the times they'll need a total shutdown (instead of reduced power) will be more limited.

Please note, this does not impact our 88.1FM Providence or 91.5FM Coventry signals, nor our webcast.

Apologies for any inconvenience!
