Community Safety and Awareness Report for Thursday, March 1st, 2012

•This week you might tune to 88.3 to find nothing there. Time to try a click to the left!  The installation of the new transmitter for KMUE has begun. Progress and weather permitting, a tower crew will mount our new antenna this week. Once that work is completed KMUE, 88.3, will be switched off and come back much better and stronger on 88.1 FM. Just a click to the left, and you’ll find your favorite station on 88.1.  More information is available at kmud.org.
