Transmitter Repairs May Cause Outages on 89.1 WBOI

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!

Update On 89.1 WBOI's Signal Strength

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.
