Further Repairs Needed To Restore 104.7FM in Bellingham

KZAZ is still not producing a usable HD-2 signal, so our Bellingham translator at 104.7 is still airing the NPR and Classical Music service.

Our engineers are working with the transmitter manufacturer on the problematic parts so we can 

 restore the NPR News service to 104.7 as soon as possible.

We sincerely apologize for the extended delay, and  appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to in get things back to normal in Bellingham in the next few days. 

You can listen to both program services online on this page.

KVTI Temporarily Operating At Reduced Power

The NPR and Classical Music service in the Tacoma area on  KVTI 90.9, is currently running at reduced power.


Some parts in the aging transmitter stopped working.  We are broadcasting with a lower power backup transmitter to keep the signal on the air while we obtain parts from the transmitter manufacturer.


Our engineers hope to receive the replacement parts and restore the signal to full power in about a week.

The explosions happened in quick succession four hours after the beginning of the race, the world's oldest and one of the most prestigious road races in the world. At that point, the majority of 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line. Thousands, however, were still out on the course.

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.
