KFFB Back On Air

Thanks to our engineers, tower crew, electricians, and others that worked tirelessly all day Saturday, KFFB was able to return to the air Saturday evening.

KFFB left the air Thursday morning. This was due to a partial collapse of our transmitting tower. At approx. 11:15 a.m. Thursday morning, the top 50 foot section of the tower broke away due to ice buildup and wind load, taking our transmitting antenna with it.

We are currently on a temporary antenna and are running at a reduced power level. We will be working over the next several days to get new, permanent equipment into place so that we can return to full power.

For those who listen on the web, our internet provider is working on the outage. We are told it will be restored sometime Monday.

Meanwhile, phone lines have been the new problem for KFFB. The phone lines at our office and studio have not been functioning over the last several days. All calls are being answered at our call center in Batesville from 8 a.m. till 9 p.m. Phone service is also expected to be restored on Monday.

Thanks to all the listeners who’ve called expressing concern over our being off the air. We appreciate each of you and have worked to quickly restore service for you.
