Been through area since late April and noticed it is off. Yesterday heard it streaming, but today certainly is not on the air.
When will it return and why is it off?
Thank you in advance.

I'm right down the road, they are off the air. Tried calling and got the "your call can not be completed as dialed".

Don't know if they went tits up or if it's a technical issue. Sorry.

Thank you for checking. I did hear a stream a few days ago. Haven't checked that.
Was able to get J-96 (Ashland,WI) Hot 96-7 (Wausau area) or WBDK (Door County)
Rolling down MI-95 yesterday, near Republic, nothing. I knew it wasn't that weak. Ugh!
Again, thank you for checking.

What I don't understand is why they have a 96.7 in BOTH Marquette and Republic. Somewhere in between you can hear both stations fighting each other with the exact same station and it's quite annoying!! A smart station manager/owner/whoever-makes-the-plan would grasp a better understanding of surrounding terrain and should have a few best places in mind to construct a tower for best station range and efficiency...shouldn't they?? (Hint...if you want your station to get out AND reach Marquette then DON'T transmit from Marquette or Republic. Morgan's Meadows and that site on CR510 seems to work well)
