Bellingham 104.7 Equipment Problem Recurs

A signal receiver has failed again, leaving the Bellingham translator unable to broadcast a clean feed of the NPR News service. We are working with the manufacturer to get a replacement as soon as possible, but briefly, 104.7 will air the NPR and Classical Music service instead.

We are deeply disappointed in the repeated equipment problems associated with this translator, and apologize for any inconvenience.

During this period, you can listen to the NPR News service on this page.

Bellingham Translator Briefly Off Air Tonight

The translator carrying our NPR News service to the Bellingham area on 104.7 FM will be off the air for about an hour beginning at 8 PM. This is to allow the owners of the site to carry out maintenance work.

During this outage, Bellingham listeners can still tune in to the NPR News service online on this page.  Another choice is to tune in to the NPR and Classical Music service at 91.7 FM, KZAZ. 

We regret any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
