WNEP-TV/WILLIAMSPORT, PA is reporting that BACKYARD BROADCASTING Country WILQ is now broadcasting at one-tenth of its regular 9200-watt power, thanks to someone crashing a log skidder into their transmitter building.
The building was totaled, and early damages are estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The station is still up and running, and the signal should be fully restored within a month.
