Lightning strikes WHQR
Updated Saturday evening 7/28: Our all-classical HD2 signal, on HD and online, is now back in service. Thank you for your patience.
Our studios at 254 North Front Street in Wilmington were struck by lightning Tuesday night. There was some damage to the building itself. In our studios, many of the computers were knocked off, but most control rooms were not seriously damaged. Our new control room is only partially operational, however.
Many thanks to Bob Workmon, Lan Nichols and others, who were able to get most systems working.
