KTLN Update

Mice have been living inside some of the KTLN transmitter equipment. We're working on repairs now (and have put in a call to the Farmer's Wife).

90.5 KTLN-FM has been experiencing technical difficulties since we relocated our transmitter to a new broadcast tower.

This past weekend our engineer Robert Carroll discovered evidence of a family of mice in the transmitter's remote control equipment.

It will take several days to replace and repair the damaged electronics, but we're confident KTLN is on a path to full service once again.

Please let us know your comments and concerns: comments@wwno.org

NPR believes the issues and perspectives that Michel Martin and the Tell Me More show team have brought to public radio should be infused into every aspect of NPR's journalism.
