Intermittent Transmitter for WNBZ

WNBZ has been dealing with a power failure which has affected our transmitter beyond the normal operations of a generator. Because of this the transmitter has been on and off through the weekend and early Monday Morning..  Our broadcast antenna is located approximately 300 feet above the ground on a tower at the top of Averil Peak which is a secondary summit of Lyon Mountain. Access to the mountain is sketchy at best and in most cases, during the spring months, access via snow cat is not possible and a helicopter flight for us is cost prohibitive. The next solution, should a specific problem with the transmitter be identified that can’t be dealt with via remote control, is to hike the trail to the tower which follows the power lines from the water tower at the base.. Work has been proceeding at the control site on power management which has been having an effect on the equipment which generates the signal on the appropriate frequency prior to it’s being amplified by the transmitter. We’re currently in contact with  engineers close to this issue who have knowledge about how to avoid any downtime in the future..  We’ll try to provide more details when they become available.. In the meantime, please feel free to listen here online… The Listen Link is in the top right on our website..  WNBZ remains on the air in the Saranac Lake Region at 1240am and in the Adirondacks at 106.5fm..  The Morning News also simulcasts 5am to 9am on ROCK105 which includes WLPW-FM at 105.5 and WRGR-FM at 102.1. Businesses advertising either on WNBZ, or During the Morning News Simulcast are receiving a regular schedule on the remaining frequencies. Once 106.3 is re-energized, (Which will also automatically re-energize 105.9fm) we will provide our advertisers with additional units relative to the numbers aired during the down time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
