Translator

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.  

UPDATE: The NPR News service translator in Ellensburg at 89.9 FM was back on the air on Wednesday evening.

The translator serving Pullman and Moscow on 89.9 FM moved to its new frequency on 93.3 FM, on Friday morning.

Broadcasting Northwest Public Radio's NPR News service 24 hours a day, 93.3 FM will have a stronger signal than 89.9.

 

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.  

It happens more than 200,000 times a year in doctor’s offices throughout Washington. An interpreter is called in to help bridge a language barrier between the physician and patient. Soon though, that interpreter may join the appointment by phone or even video. Olympia Correspondent Austin Jenkins explains.
