The signal is Pelican is back on the air after a corroded cable had caused disruption to the satellite receiving device. A huge thank you to Allen Stewart who helped our engineers troubleshoot from afar, and installed the new cable.
Over the last couple of days, our translator communities have had intermittent signal outages. With help from our engineers, we've located the problem and it should be up through the night, but possibly intermittent! Tomorrow engineers will swap out another piece of equipment. That will take the signal off the air for 1/2 hour or so, but should fix this issue for good. Thanks so much for your patience, and a big thank you to everyone who called in and let us know when problems arose!
Raven Radio experienced some technical difficulties this afternoon, and was temporarily off the air.

Thanks so much for your patience, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
After being off the air for three days, Raven Radio can now be heard in Yakutat once again. With help from Coast Alaska Engineers, Yakutat local, Kris Widdows identified the severed cable and along with another dedicated volunteer, replaced the conduit and got things back up and running! Thanks for your patience while we got this fixed, and a big thanks to the volunteers who made it happen!
