High winds and heavy rain are being blamed for the collapse of two towers in the Berkshires over the weekend that affected broadcast, cell and Internet service.
Some cell and Internet service has been restored to certain Massachusetts residents.
That’s according to boston.com, quoting the Associated Press.
Engineer Paul Thurst writes on his blog that WUPE(FM), North Adams, Mass., was affected. Indeed, a crawl on the website for “WHOOPEE” Radio tells listeners they can still hear the signal from the website and on 1110 kHz AM during the day.
A University of Massachusetts-owned translator for “New England Public Radio was also affected, pushing back its sign-on date,” according to Thurst.
The Berkshire Eagle reported that police urged residents who lost service to tune to WNAW(AM), North Adams, Mass. (1230 kHz) or Channel 22 television.
