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!

 

Updated 1/18/2017 | 10:45 am -- As winter weather continues around our listening area service may be affected by a build up ice on some of our towers. 

The Classics & News signal is being affected by a build up of ice on some of our towers. The issue is expected to clear up when the weather warms in the next few days.

The areas affected are:

Coos County - KOOZ
Redding - 90.9FM

In the meantime you can hear any of our three services using the listen live feature at the top of the page.

Thanks for your patience!

Updated 1/4/2017 12:30 pm -- Rhythm & News service has been restored to low power. Our engineer continues to work to get the service back to full power.

The Rhythm & News service is off the air in the region surrounding Redding. The outage is likely due to a build up of ice on the antennae. Our engineer is working to restore service.

In the meantime you can hear any of our three services using the listen live feature at the top of the page.

Thanks for your patience!

Service Alert for KAGI in Grants Pass

Dec 8, 2016

Updated 1/18/2017 10:30 am -- Due to heavy rains KAGI listeners can expect intermittent interruptions in service due to wet tree branches located around one of the relay towers between our main studio in Ashland and Grants Pass. We continue work on a long term solution for this problem. 

Updated 12/15/2016 4:30 pm -- Some branches have been trimmed and the owner is assessing which additional branches to take. If we are not able to resolve the problem by trimming branches around the tower we are looking at the possibility of raising the antennae above the level of the trees.

Update:  Wednesday, 9/21 -- Work at Brookings was completed and we're now broadcasting at 101.7FM. The new translator is operating well but will undergo additional improvements in the coming weeks.
