All Brewster and Pateros stations are off the air.
KSPS is off the air from McClure and Grizzly.
It looks like our southernmost site on Goat Mtn has been destroyed by the Chelan Complex fire.
This site transmitted the Brewster and Pateros channels and was also the source for KSPS on McClure and Grizzly.
We'll be assessing our options for getting KSPS back on the air in the upper Methow,
but it will likely be many days before we can get to our remaining Goat site to work on alternatives for Brewster/Pateros.
The generator on McClure has an internal fault, probably originating with the lightning strike on June 1, so it is not operational and will be repaired/replaced as soon as possible.
Some areas in the upper valley may have poor reception of Fox 28.1 and 28.2. We're working to resolve a subtle equipment problem.
