12:50PM UPDATE ON 4/23/19:

Engineers have isolated the part that is causing the problem.  These are not off the shelf parts.  It has to be assembled and tuned to the right frequencies.  The manufacturer hopes to have that completed today.  Then, it would need to be sent by truck.  Once here, WAAY can swap out the units and get back to full power while a permanent repair is made.

Sorry about the inconvenience.  We're as frustrated as everyone else... especially since the transmitter and assorted equipment is brand new and has only been in operation for 10 days and we worked with the world's largest transmitter company to get the job done.

- Paul Dughi, VP/GM

4:20PM UPDATE:

WAAY 31 is currently broadcasting at low power due to transmitter issues.  We are working with experts to fix the problem.
