Sounds Good! WYSU Antenna Repair Complete!

We are very happy to report that, except for some relatively minor fine tuning to be done in the next couple weeks, our $50,000 antenna repair is complete, and we are back and better than ever.  A lightning strike in mid-June severely damaged our antenna, reducing its power by 40%.  It took six weeks to fabricate the replacement parts, and then another full week to install them.  Thank you for your patience, and for your support of WYSU. Check out additional photos of the damage and repair process on our Facebook page.
