Local public radio station KYAQ Siletz/Newport has just signed on the air and they’re asking everyone in the region to give them a quick listen and say how the signal is coming in.
KYAQ is testing its new transmitter and antenna atop a tall hill in Newport. There are already reports the signal is listenable in Waldport and of course Newport. But regardless of where you live, turn your FM radio to 91.7 (on the far left of your FM dial) and tell them how they’re doing where you are. Just go to their Facebook page – KYAQ News and leave them a message of where you live and how the signal sounds. They’re not running local programming yet so it’s an alternative news and public affairs network you’ll be hearing.
