Antenna Back Up!

Radio Boise’s transmission has been challenged lately.

Good News! We’re back on air, at quarter-power, until the full repair can be done.

Bad weather during Treefort Music Fest brought some broadcast downtime and caused damage to our antenna. We went to the transmitter site with a tower crew and determined the issue was a damaged component inside of our antenna array. We were able to bring the FM signal back online with a quick-fix – knowing we would need to go back soon with a full repair.

Then, with the severe weather Sunday and Thursday night, our tower-patch failed and we were off the air again for the last few days. Our tower crew has been on site getting us up broadcasting again. We’ll provide updates as we’re coming back online fully.

You can listen anytime anywhere on our mobile player. Add it to the homescreen on your mobile device for easy access. You can also find us on Tune-In radio

    Well, I was considering withdrawing my monthly support payments…I am still unable to pick up the station in 3 of the 4 rooms in my house (all 4 used to be loud and clear). The signal strength in my living room is only marginal, with lots of static. I live in SW Boise, between Fairview and Franklin just east of Cloverdale Rd. I cannot (well, could not the past few weeks) pick up the station at all in my pickup truck, which used to ‘get’ KRBX loud and clear all the way to the border (Ontario). I really hope you can fix the antenna permanently soon! I MISS KRBX and sitting by my computer in the back of the house isn’t something I can do all day to hear my favorite shows. Nor is listening to it on my phone…

    Hoping for a resolution soon! I can’t afford to support the station if I can’t listen to it in the house….but I realize you need our financial support to afford the costs of repair/replacement to the antenna. So, I’ll remain patient with the knowledge you’re doing all you can to fix the problems.

    Best of luck with the repairs!

    I have been wondering where the signal went. I live in Payette and never had a stereo signal but the mono was strong. Now I see there has been an antenna problem. Seems like right around Tree Fort it went south.

    Thanks for all the great programming.

    I have missed having you at my finger tips, so I’m glad to hear you are almost back to 100%. I couldn’t think of life without this station! Thanks for all your hard work!
