Wenatchee, Chelan Signals Experiencing Problems
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.
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.
Until the signal is fully restored, you can listen to our NPR and Classical music service on this page. The NPR News service translators in Wenatchee (90.3) and Ellensburg (89.9) are not affected.
We sincerely regret the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
