KPR Engineers, Tower Crews Keep KPR Humming Along

Both of Kansas Public Radio's frequencies in Lawrence -- FM 91.5 and FM 96.1 (KPR2) -- were temporarily off the air this week so crews could climb the transmitter tower and make a variety of repairs. The maintenance work included checking tower lights and replacing burned-out bulbs. Working tower lights are one of the most important safety features on all radio and TV broadcasting towers. The blinking red lights help alert nearby aircraft, so they can avoid flying into the towers (and the guy-wires that surround the towers) while flying at night or in dense fog conditions.

Thanks to KPR's engineering department and the tower crews for looking after #MyKPR's tower on KU's west campus!

Thanks also to KPR listener-members for their financial support. Listener-members make everything possible at KPR, including tower maintenance.
