NORTHSTATE PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial KFPR/REDDING, CA and two FM translators are off the air due to a power outage at the station's primary transmitter site on SHASTA BALLY, according to the REDDING RECORD SEARCHLIGHT.
The station went off the air late SATURDAY due to a downed power line and PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC is waiting for a break in the weather to locate and fix the problem. Station engineer MIKE BIRDSILL told the paper, "We expect to be off the air for another couple of days." Sister KCHO/CHICO, CA remains on the air.
