News

Are you experiencing radio signal disruptions in Calgary? Get the latest info here.

JANUARY 18 UPDATE from Rod Setter, CKUA’s Director of Engineering and IT:

We are at 6% of our normal transmitter power: 1000 watts. This should be the lowest we will need to go. The originally calculated value was 80 watts. We will go back to 50% power later in the day and overnight. The power will be at 6% for at least a portion of of the day on both Thursday, January 19 and Friday, January 20. The crew here is working to maintain optimal safety, and keep these low power levels to a minimum.

JANUARY 17 UPDATE from Rod Setter, CKUA’s Director of Engineering and IT:

Maintenance work will take place at the Calgary transmitter between Tuesday, January 17  and Friday, January 27, weather permitting.

A tower crew will be working on the master antenna system in Calgary. Eight other stations broadcast from this tower, and they will also be affected.

For the safety of the workers on the tower, a reduction in power is necessary for most of this time. These power reductions will range from not noticeable to a signal with static for some listeners.

For short periods, the broadcasters will need to shut down their transmitters completely. These interruptions should last no more than three minutes.

We will try to keep everyone informed as new information comes in. Thank you for your understanding.
