Reception/Frequencies, Weather and Road Conditions


We are currently experiencing transmitter issues on 90.9 KUWG, Gillette. Shane will travel to the site and investigate as soon as possible.


After receiving a high temperature alarm from Fort Washakie last week, I briefly shut the transmitter down on Saturday while I drove to the site.  When I arrived, I found this…

The hub of the air conditioner fan blade had failed and literally chewed the motor shaft in half.  The building was 120 degrees inside but reducing transmitter output to 50% and opening a fresh air damper brought it down to 90 degrees.

I have new parts en-route and expect to make repairs today. Never a dull moment.



If you are experiencing a signal issue not listed here, please contact us at 307-766-3531 or e-mail stoven@uwyo.edu.
