Transmitter outage in Sitka fixed!

KCAW is broadcasting in Sitka again as of 11:30am Thursday, July 6th.  Raven Radio’s broadcast signals, on 104.7 and 90.1 FM were dropping out sporadically as of 2am on the Fourth of July and then went out for good on Wednesday morning when a component of the transmitter failed. We installed a spare component, called an “exciter”, but that also failed, so we had to get together a third solution, which is working wonderfully! We apologize for the inconvenience and would like to give a big shout out to the incredible engineering skills of CoastAlaska Chief of Engineering Rich Parker…all done remotely! Thanks Rich!

The Fates Afoot

We have had a great time working together at Raven Radio and it is time to announce that we will be resigning at the end of August, just a couple months shy of co-managing for two years. Ken will have worked for Raven Radio 27 years straight, even editing Encounters while away from Sitka for six months. We are stepping away happy, and will be staying in Sitka and making ourselves available for new opportunities. Nothing specific to report on that front…yet. Thanks to each of you that have made our time at Raven Radio such a pleasure!
