JPR operates one of the largest broadcast networks in the United States. Much of our equipment is housed in remote mountaintop communication facilities that can be difficult to reach during harsh weather conditions. Very few of these facilities have back-up electrical power making them susceptible to service interruptions when commercial power fails. Additionally, many listeners receive JPR via low-power FM translators which are not able to be monitored in our studios.
Because of these factors, JPR relies heavily on listener reports of service anomalies, impairments and outages. Known impairments and/or outages are posted to the bottom of this page.
If you're experiencing an interruption in your service please submit your report using the form below -- this will alert our chief engineer and other key staff about issues that need to be addressed. When in doubt please let us know!
On Wednesday, June 23 our engineer is planning to troubleshoot the microwave link from our King Mountain site to several Coos Bay transmitters, including KOOZ 94.1 FM, KZBY 90.5 FM, and KSBA 88.5 FM. These services may experience interruptions during the afternoon.
Following the upgrade of JPR's Classics & News service to its new frequency on 101.1 FM, we are now offering our News & Information service on 96.9 FM in the Redding area. We encourage you to check it out!
