"Off-the-Air" Situations around the Network and other Technical Issues

10/18-19/2017: Sheridan  (91.3)

This site will be off the air Thursday as we move to a different transmitter site due to displacement at our current site.  We will be increasing our power output over the next year in the Sheridan area.  This signal will be off-the air from about 8:30am - 5:30pm.

10/2/17: Lander/Riverton Wyoming Sounds signal (90.5)

Upon improving the signal in the greater Lander/Riverton area earlier this year, we found that the new signal was lower in some parts of Lander due to shading from the mountains near Sinks Canyon.  As a remedy we have added the Wyoming Public Radio Main channel on 90.5.  You can now find Wyoming public Radio’s Main channel at both 90.9 and 90.5.  Wyoming Sounds will be found at a new home on 102.9 in the next few weeks. You can listen to Wyoming Sounds online until then (click here).

8/10/17: Lander Signal (fm 90.9)
Status update:
We have received the new antenna that will beam a signal directly into Lander without interfering with the main signal from Limestone Mountain.  We are also getting a data circuit put in to synchronize the two signals.  This is important as the signals could cancel each other out in some areas if this isn’t done.  We will install a new booster transmitter that has capabilities to adjust the delay of the signals to synchronize them.  I have to get a tower crew out to install the antenna.  Hopefully we can get these things done in the next few weeks and get a good signal back into central Lander.

1/30/17: All audio streams for Wyoming Public Media (WPR, Classical Wyoming, Wyoming Sounds and Jazz Wyoming) have been changed so as to meet new international standards for SSL (Secure) connections.

If you listen on the WPR App: Close your app. Update. Re-launch.
