Most of HPPR's network of stations will be on-and-off the air on Thursday, December 6th between 1 and 3 pm CT due to required maintenance work. During this time technicians from the Public Radio Satellite Service will be making adjustments and upgrades to satellite system that HPPR uses to distribute programming to its 21 FM stations. The most likely period for being off-air will be between 1:30 and 2:30 pm. The only exception to this service outage will be KANZ-FM in southwest Kansas and the adjacent translator stations in Ashland, Elkhart, Liberal, Ness City and Tribune, where we can use a back-up microwave system to continue broadcasting.
We regret this necessary interruption and service. Should you experience any reception problems after this planned period, please leave a note below or directly email HPPR's chief engineer, Chuck Springer.
