What the heck’s happened to the KZYX weekend broadcasts?

As many listeners noticed, we had a few spots of what sometimes is referred to as “dead air” Saturday and Sunday. Technically speaking, this wasn’t true “dead air” as the transmitter was transmitting just fine. The problem was in Philo, where we experienced two unrelated problems almost simultaneously.

It's Thursday afternoon, and Mariah Gilardin was in the Philo studio to host a Pledge Drive edition of TUC Radio featuring a talk by acclaimed progressive activist and author Naomi Klein. KZYX is offering Naomi Klein's new book, "No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump's Shock Politics and Winning The World We Need" as a Pledge Drive thank you gift for a pledge of $150 or more.

KZYX News reporter Valerie Kim, currently on maternity leave, dropped by with infant daughter Juno to pitch Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Terry's guest on Fresh Air was Minnesota Senator Al Franken, and we are pleased to offer Franken's new autobiography, "Al Franken: Giant of the Senate," as a thank you gift for a pledge of $150.

Make the leap from listener to listener-supporter. If you're already a member, consider making an additional donation or becoming a sustaining member. And finally, encourage your friends and neighbors to support locally owned and operated community radio, KZYX.

There are many ways for you to communicate with KZYX. One of them is to

attend the upcoming meeting of your Community Advisory Board. It's in at the

Fort Bragg Library on June 7th. A member survey went out with the recent

Board of Directors ballots. We will discuss the many responses, and snacks

will be served. You're encouraged to attend this meeting in the Community

Room of the Fort Bragg Library, 449 East Laurel Street, on Wednesday June

7th, at 6 o'clock.

Welcome to the KZYX tech blog. Here I hope to provide periodic updates on the technical state of the station, inject a bit of humor now and then and maybe answer some of the more commonly asked technical questions. I hope not to be too techno-jargonish and will try to give timelines and links to more information whenever possible. Thanks, Rich Culbertson

Today, I just want to very briefly explain a bit about our signal path and some of the obstacles we face getting KZYX to your radios.
