KCSR-AM will be off the air for a few hours today to complete the repainting of the broadcast tower on the west side of Chadron. For the safety of the paint crew, the transmitter must be turned off..
Just as many structures such as the Golden Gate Bridge must be painted regularly to prevent rust and corrosion, so do broadcast towers.
The painting crew began the project 3 weeks ago on the 10th, but had to quit because of unsafe winds with roughly the lower third of the tower still to go and today is the first opportunity since then to complete the work.
Although the over-the-air signal will be gone during the painting, KCSR’s regular programming will continue online here on our website at Chadronradio.com
