Problems With WVPR 89.5

If you've had trouble listening to VPR at 89.5 over the last several days, I just wanted to let you know that we have been experiencing problems with our transmitter, which affects the signal at 89.5, our translator at 94.5, as well as our HD channels.

We are not sure yet what the exact cause is, but our engineers report there is a problem with the the filter/combiner network that leads up to the antenna. It's causing the transmitter to automatically reduce power in order to protect itself from being damaged.

Engineers working on it, and hope to have the problem corrected and WVPR restored to full power very soon! Thank you for your patience!

    Each morning, on my early morning drive to work, I enjoy listening to the international perspective of the BBC on 89.5..I have missed this refreshing relief from the constant barrage of partisan political incompetance emanating from virtually every other outlet. Hoping the equipment issues are resolved soon!!
