Throughout today, intermittent outages may occur on 89.1 WBOI. These outages are necessary as our engineers work to repair the damage to our transmitter from last week's power surge. Our HD transmitter is still working so you can listen to us online at wboi.org or through the free NIPR app for your smartphone or tablet. Thank you so much for patience! We hope to have these issues resolved this weekend.
As many listeners know, on March 19th, a power surge caused significant damage to 89.1 WBOI's transmitter. 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.
Due to electrical issues beyond our control, 89.1 WBOI is running at reduced power. We hope to have the issue resolved as soon as possible. Remember, you can always listen online at wboi.org or by downloading the free NIPR app for your smartphone or tablet. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience!
Snow and ice have accumulated on the antennas that send our signal from our studio site to the transmitter site in Roanoke. We are working on finding a solution to this issue. In the meantime, you can still listen live at wbni.org or on 89.1 HD-2. Thank you for your patience!
