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.
