Our chief engineer began working on the problem immediately to prevent further damage, but the incident forced us to utilize a back-up transmitter with reduced signal strength. This means fewer listeners outside the Fort Wayne metro area can hear us clearly as of now.</p><p></p> Tue, 25 Mar 2014 18:08:58 +0000 Sean Bueter 28184 at http://wboi.org Update On 89.1 WBOI's Signal Strength 89.1 WBOI Running at Reduced Power Due to Electrical Issues http://wboi.org/post/891-wboi-running-reduced-power-due-electrical-issues <p>Due to electrical issues beyond our control, 89.1 WBOI is running at reduced power. &nbsp;We hope to have the issue resolved as soon as possible. &nbsp;Remember, you can always listen online at wboi.org or by downloading the free NIPR app for your smartphone or tablet. &nbsp;We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience!</p> Thu, 20 Mar 2014 11:15:02 +0000 Katy Anderson 27959 at http://wboi.org 94.1 WBNI to Broadcast Fort Wayne Philharmonic's "Audience Choice 2013/14" http://wboi.org/post/941-wbni-broadcast-fort-wayne-philharmonics-audience-choice-201314 <p style="margin-bottom: 15px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-size: 15.555556297302246px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Georgia, Times, serif; line-height: 22px;">94.1 WBNI&nbsp;is proud to broadcast the Fort Wayne Philharmonic's Masterworks Series. &nbsp;This Thursday, March 13th&nbsp;at 7pm we will be featuring the March 1st&nbsp;concert, &nbsp;"Audience Choice 2013/14." &nbsp;</p> Wed, 12 Mar 2014 20:43:22 +0000 Katy Anderson 27627 at http://wboi.org 94.1 WBNI Signal Disrupted Due to Weather Conditions http://wboi.org/post/941-wbni-signal-disrupted-due-weather-conditions <p>Snow and ice have accumulated on the antennas that send our signal from our studio site to the transmitter site in Roanoke. &nbsp;We are working on finding a solution to this issue. &nbsp;In the meantime, you can still listen live at wbni.org or on 89.1 HD-2. &nbsp;Thank you for your patience!</p> Wed, 12 Mar 2014 17:53:36 +0000 Katy Anderson 27616 at http://wboi.org
