Due to tower technicians having to work in very close proximity to the KEOS broadcast antenna we have been forced to further reduce or power to below 15 watts effective radiated power while workers are on the tower.

KEOS normally operates with 1,000 watts of power, so this is just over 1% of our normal power. The means that KEOS is likely no longer listenable outside of an area of a couple of miles from the tower near the corner of Leonard Road and FM 2818 in Bryan.

Safety of the tower workers and compliance with FCC and OSHA rules are of paramount importance to us. We apologize for our poor signal during this time. We’re hoping for low winds and good weather which will allow the crew to complete their work in the shortest time possible so that we can return to full power.

Thanks again to everyone for your patience!
Lance Parr, Chief Engineer
