SYRACUSE -- If you work in downtown Syracuse and you rely on WRVD 90.3 to listen to the programming of the WRVO stations, you may be left in the dark for most of the day on Tuesday, March 31.
Program Director Fred Vigeant says there have been several recent complaints about poor reception from the transmitter atop the SUNY Health Science Center. WRVD is licensed for 280 watts, a whopping 13 meters above average terrain... not much, but enough to cover downtown areas WRVO's main signal from Oswego can't penetrate.
Vigeant says WRVD will be taken off the air around 9:00 Tuesday morning, and engineers should have it signed back on by 3:00pm. In the meantime, if you can't tune in WRVO's main Oswego signal but you're near a computer, you can listen live at www.wrvo.fm.
