KSUT's 88.1 FM signal serving Northwest New Mexico experienced the failure of one it's key components last weekend. Engineers visited the site on Friday (August, 23) and were able to diagnose the problem and we are working on getting replacements equipment to the site. We apologize for the loss of service and will get the signal back as soon as possible.
The greatest gift KSUT can give you the listener is less on-air fund raising and more on-air programming.
That is exactly what we are going to do! We know that it’s the great music, trusted news and quality public service programs that keeps you tuned to KSUT - the very same reasons you support Public Radio every year with a financial contribution.
A RED FLAG warning has been issued for today; this is the fourth day in a row where conditions are ideal for rapid fire spread and for the chances of any ignition source starting new fires. Winds that have been pushing the fires will continue from the southwest at 15 to 20 mph with gusts to 35 mph wind gusts up to 50 mph on exposed ridges. The fires are again expected to make significant runs. The size for the West Fork Fire Complex that now includes the Papoose Fire is 53,544 acres.
A RED FLAG warning has been issued for today; this is the third day in a row where conditions are ideal for rapid fire spread and for the chances of any ignition source starting new fires. With the predicted weather and the volatile fuels, the fire is again expected to make significant runs. The total acreage for the West Fork Fire Complex rose from 12,710 acres Wednesday morning to 29,911 acres as of 6:00 AM Friday morning. Most of the gain in acreage was on the West Fork Fire.
This morning, the mandatory evacuation order went out for the town of South Fork. We have shelters open and ready to accept evacuees. Transportation for those needing assistance has been pre-staged and is being coordinating through the Alamosa EOC.
KSUT's main transmitter site on Missionary Ridge experienced a massive power surge sometime last night or early morning causing the breakers to trip on both the main and backup power supplies. The yet to be determined cause of the surge forced the 90.1 FM transmitter to fail, which in-turn caused 88.1 FM in San Juan County, New Mexico to go down too. Crews responded and were able to restore power around 10:30 AM this morning.
Due to a power outage at our Missionary Ridge transmitter site last night, 90.1 FM is temporarily off air. We have an engineer on his way to the site to remedy the problem. Tune to 89.3 FM in La Plata County or 105.3 FM in San Juan County, NM or listen on-line. Sorry for the inconvenience.
