KPFZ Off-air due to Equipment Failure : Nov 28, 2017

Tuesday, November 28

Late on Sunday, November 26 (close to midnight) a weather event (wind, rain)
shut down the KPFZ transmitter. At first I thought there was a power outage
on Mt Konocti,  but if there was one, it was brief, and there is power up
there now.  In any event, our equipment on the mountain has not worked since
then,  and the station is off-the-air.  Remote access to that equipment from
the studio no longer exists, so there is no way to contact the transmitter.
A site visit on the mountain will occur sometime this week to asses any
damage to the antenna, transmission line, and transmitter.   However because
of the weekend rains and muddy roads, we will wait until it is safe to go up
there.

In the meantime, programmers may do their shows for the live stream, and for
repeat broadcasts.

Thanks,

andy
