A failure in a satellite uplink is blamed for knocking out High Plains Public Radio.
The uplink from Garden City, Kansas, serves four stations and 16 translators in the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles, western Kansas and southeastern Colorado.
The Dodge City Daily Globe quotes Chief Engineer Chuck Springer as saying repairs to the uplink are not an option because the manufacturer is no longer in business. The problem developed Tuesday morning. The organization is using online streaming to keep in touch with listeners. A replacement uplink has been ordered and High Plains is trying to get its hands on a loaner in the meantime.
