Weather http://redriverradio.org en Ice On Our Towers Causing Reduced Power http://redriverradio.org/post/ice-our-towers-causing-reduced-power <p>The weather in Alexandria, Lufkin, and El Dorado is causing ice to build up on our towers and antennae which has forced us to reduce power at this time. We will continue to operate at reduced power until the ice melts. This may cause poor reception in some areas. &nbsp;So far&nbsp;KDAQ is not affected by icing but conditions may change overnight. We appreciate your patience during this period of severe weather.</p><p> Wed, 16 Jan 2013 02:00:00 +0000 22343 at http://redriverradio.org Ice On Our Towers Causing Reduced Power Red River Radio on Backup Power http://redriverradio.org/post/red-river-radio-backup-power <p>The campus of LSUS lost power early Wednesday morning and the damage has caused considerable problems for the campus and Red River Radio. Repairs may take several days and during that time Red River Radio will be running on a backup generator. We will have power for only critical equipment and will have neither phones nor email service during the repair time. We will still have access to our web site which is located on a server off campus and unaffected by the power outage or repairs.
