Nov. 21 - WHQR at low power again

Once again, workers will be climbing the tower housing our signal today to make changes to TV equipment there. While they are on the tower, we will be reducing power to protect them. Some listeners may experience signal problems, and our HD signal will not be operational. Thank you again for your patience.

WHQR is [no longer] experiencing technical problems

Update Wednesday afternoon, November 2nd:

We were able to restore all functionality early this afternoon. Thanks to Operations Manager George Scheibner and a very special SA-lute to Jobie Sprinkle, Chief Engineer of WFAE in Charlotte, who took the day off to drive down here and make needed repairs. Both our FM and HD signals should be back on track now.

My first car was a 1957 Triumph TR-3 that I found under a tarp in a neighbor's garage.  Over the years, my admiration for the athleticism, intuition and intelligence of the great drivers has never waned.
