Kx the farm

Noticed the same on 101.1. Maybe something weather-related?  
I know we have a few folks that work at either station that follow this site. If you're reading and have more info that you can share, please feel free to post or send me a note through the contact link at the top of any page in the site.

KX96 Off the air till at least 2:30pm

Oh the irony of it all!  
You may have noticed KX96 and our sister station 101.1 FM the Farm are a little staticy this morning. In short, we're off the air.  
Here's a the play by play of how it all went down. (Literally!!!)  
At 10:30 this morning the KX96 off air alarm sounded. Upon arriving at the scene I called our engineers to see if it was a transmitter tower issue. Nope, well... not exactly. It was a power issue. We were notified by MB. Hydro that a car had skidded into one of the main Hydro power poles that was hooked up to our Transmitter tower. After years and years of saying "please drive with care and caution during the change of the seasons especially when icy conditions arrive" I arrive at work to tackle this problem while we are off the air.  
The latest from Manitoba Hydro is that we should be back on the air by 2:30pm today. If you need me I'll be sipping on a nice hot cup of irony here in the studio... ;-}  
All the best,  
Frank McGwire

I'm not on a computer right now where I can test this, but guessing that the online feeds are still a go?  
Edit: maybe not, getting dead air with the iPhone app. Thanks for the updates.. I'm sure all will be back to normal soon

Weird how they went off the air at exactly 10:30 I immediately thought this was a moment of silence because of remembrance day.
