It was discovered today that OPB’s transmitter on Glenada Hill had failed. There were already plans to replace it with a new transmitter and that was done at approximately 1:00 PM today. The transmitter that was replaced today and the two transmitters that we proactively replaced last week were all older and obsolete. All of our transmitters are the same modern model now that those three transmitters have been replaced which should improve the signal quality and reliability of KEPB (28.x), KEZI (9.x) and KLSR (34.x).

Please accept our apologies for the unanticipated interruption of OPB’s service.
