Wenatchee, Chelan Signals Experiencing Problems http://nwpr.org/post/wenatchee-chelan-signals-experiencing-problems <p>The transmitter serving Wenatchee and Ellensburg on 90.7 is running at low power and the signal is very weak. As it serves as the audio source of KHNW 88.3 in Chelan/Waterville/Manson, that signal is also compromised.</p><p>Engineers are unable to access KNWR to investigate and fix this problem, because the road tothe transmitter site is impassable due to deep snow and ice. They're keeping a close eye on temperatures, and as soon as warmer temperatures allow access, they are ready to take the snow cat up the mountain.</p> Sat, 08 Mar 2014 18:53:32 +0000 Gillian Coldsnow 42485 at http://nwpr.org Wenatchee, Chelan Signals Experiencing Problems Designing Better Asphalt http://nwpr.org/post/designing-better-asphalt <p></p> Mon, 03 Mar 2014 19:03:19 +0000 Gillian Coldsnow 42227 at http://nwpr.org Designing Better Asphalt From The Top Auditions Due http://nwpr.org/post/top-auditions-due <p></p><p>Young classical musicans: <a href="http://www.fromthetop.org/casting">send in your audition tape now</a>!
