In Wyoming, Classical Music Is Planned on Multicasts

Wyoming Public Radio said it is installing HD Radio gear to create a statewide radio network, and a 24-hour a day classical service, with BBC newscasts, will be heard on the multicast channels.
Newcastle station KUWN(FM) at 90.5 FM is the first site to be converted. Transmitters have been installed at network stations in Gillette, Jackson and Douglas, according to project engineer Larry Dean. HD is planned for stations in Laramie, Rock Springs Afton, Buffalo, Casper, Pinedale, Powell, Sheridan, Sundance and Thermopolis by fall.
The network is funded by $828,000 from CPB and $245,000 from the state legislature. Jon Schwartz is WPR general manager; the network is run by the University of Wyoming.
