We apologize to our listeners in the WJAZ and York listening areas. WRTI is experiencing a failure of a critical piece of equipment that is affecting our service in your area.
Unfortunately, due to its age, no parts are available and replacing it requires replacing several other components for compatibility reasons. It is also a substantial expense well beyond our emergency and capital expense budgets.
We are working with the manufacturer and hoping they can rebuild the failing unit with some modern, yet compatible, hardware as a short-term solution. If possible, we expect to fix the problem by April 30th, but this is highly dependent on the manufacturer, so the date could change. In the long run, WRTI will be investing in a more modern distribution infrastructure that will greatly minimize this specific type of failure.
We will update this page as new information is available. Thanks for your patience.
