STEPHENVILLE, Texas—After experiencing an outage for several days, Tarleton Public Radio is back on the air.

The university’s radio station, KTRL 90.5 FM, was knocked off the air on Nov. 30, but technicians were able to restore the signal and resume normal programming at approximately noon today, said station manager Lance McFarlin.

“We would like to apologize to our listeners for the technical problems over the last few days,” said McFarlin. “We know that our listeners are very dedicated to our station and we have been working all week to get our signal back on the air.”

Although the exact cause of the signal outage is not entirely known, technicians working to restore the signal believe a power surge at KTRL’s radio transmitter near Bluff Dale was the root problem.

“We appreciate all of the calls we received and would like to thank our listeners for their patience during this time,” McFarlin added. “We are back on the air today and have taken steps to ensure that this is not an issue in the future.”
