WYSU's Ashtabula radio service on 88.1 FM is now operating normally.

At approximately 9pm on April 5, the sprinkler system in our Ashtabula transmission room activated for nearly 20 minutes before the building maintenance team disabled it. Unsurprisingly, this caused many problems with our broadcast equipment and resulted in a total loss of transmission. Further investigation has not revealed any evidence of fire, smoke, or increased temperature in the room, strongly suggesting that the sprinkler system malfunctioned. Repairs to all facilities and equipment have been completed.

As always, we appreciate your continued patience and support!
