Signal Status & Impairments

JPR Engineer Darin Ransom climbs the KSOR tower on King Mountain to make a winter repair.

JPR operates one of the largest terrestrial 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.  And, 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 will be posted to 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 also other key staff about issues that need to be addressed. When in doubt please let us know!

 

Several JPR stations in the Rogue Valley will be off the air on Thursday, December 13th. Services will go off the air starting mid-to-late morning and the outage will continue for several hours. Our engineer will be installing a backup power generator on Mt. Baldy which will keep us humming along during future power outages and public emergencies. The services affected are:

The News & Information service 930 AM in Grants Pass is currently off the air.

Our engineer is working to diagnose the issue and restore service as soon as possible.

In the meantime you can hear all three services using the listen live feature at the top of the page. 

Thanks for your patience!

All three JPR services are being affected by weather conditions and an issue with the microwave transmitter at the tower site at Soda Mountain. The issue is causing intermittence and some silence.

Our engineer plans to visit the site this week to diagnose the issue and work on repairs.

In the meantime you can hear all three services using the listen live feature at the top of the page. 

Thanks for your patience!

The Rhythm & News service in Redding is operating at low power due to a damaged antenna on the tower. While repairs have been scheduled, our engineer will not be able to complete the work until the snow melts at the tower site.

In the meantime you can hear all three services using the listen live feature at the top of the page. 

Thanks for your patience!
