After months of construction and operating at low power, the KUWZ and KZUW Rock Springs / Green River transmitter site is operational again. The KUWZ signal is now operation at it’s full licensed power of 35,000 watts. This will now allow listening along the I-80 corridor from the Rawlins area to the east to the Evanston area to the west and also provide a listenable signal to many small towns along the Wyoming / Utah border.  KZUW (Classical Wyoming) is also operating with it’s new transmitter and provides service primarily in the Rock Springs and Green River area.

Wyoming Public Radio Signal Improves West Of The Tetons

Feb 6, 2014

Wyoming Public Radio’s signal has moved from 91.3 FM to 91.7 FM.  Responding to public comments about signal deterioration, Wyoming Public Media applied to the FCC and was granted a modification for translator station K217ED.  The signal is boosted from 99 to 250 watts, and the transmitter will be raised higher.  This should improve both the quality and the signal strength of Wyoming Public Radio for listeners in the west side of the Tetons.

Construction of the new signal to serve Kaycee and I-25 between Casper and Buffalo is complete.  The new 1,600 watt signal can be heard in many areas where no other WPR service was previously available.  We are already receiving reports from a number of listeners about the new signal. Turn your dial to 88.7 FM if you happen to be traveling in that part of the state, or if you live in or near Kaycee.
