Signal Status & Impairments

JPR Engineer Darin Ransom climbs the KSOR tower on King Mountain to make a winter repair.

JPR operates one of the largest terrestrial broadcast networks in the United States.  Much of our equipment is housed in remote mountaintop communication facilities that can be difficult to reach during harsh weather conditions.  And, very few of these facilities have back-up electrical power making them susceptible to service interruptions when commercial power fails.  Additionally, many listeners receive JPR via low-power FM translators which are not able to be monitored in our studios.

Because of these factors, JPR relies heavily on listener reports of service anomalies, impairments and outages. Known impairments and/or outages will be posted to this page.

If you're experiencing an interruption in your service please submit your report using the form below-- this will alert our chief engineer and also other key staff about issues that need to be addressed. When in doubt please let us know!

 

Scheduled utility maintenance at our Gunsight communications site will affect the Classics & News service and we are expecting be off the air Monday, August 21st - August 22nd. We expect power will be restored on August 23rd and service will return to normal.

During this outage you can listen to any of our three services using the listen live feature at the top of the page. 

Thanks for your patience!

Updated 8/16/2017 | 9:30 am -- Engineers will be at our Hatchett Mountain site today, working to improve signal quality for this microwave link, which is currently impacting the Classics & News service in the Redding area. Service may experience intermittent interruptions as they complete their work. 

Updated 8/1/2017  -- JPR engineers replaced the microwave system that delivers our Classics & News service audio to KNHT.  The system has been intermittently malfunctioning causing audio drop outs.  KNHT is now at full strength.

Updated 7/24/2017 | 9:00 am -- JPR's Classics & News service is now at 102.5 FM. 

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has reassigned some of the frequencies in Humboldt County and is requiring JPR to move our Classics & News frequency to 102.5 FM. 107.3 FM will no longer be a JPR station.
