Signal loss FAQ
WEKU 88.9 FM is operating under low power during the daytime on variable days of the week so tower crews can retrofit the KET owned tower at the Clays Ferry location. The repairs and work is mandated by the Federal Communications Commission and as such, WEKU has no control over work schedule or extended delays. The final stage of work begins May 20 and runs about 4 weeks. Rain and/or fog could delay that schedule.
We encourage listeners to tune in online on computers or mobile devices at weku.fm or using the WEKU mobile app available in the Apple app store or Google Play.
Listeners who want to hear WEKU online in their cars can do so if their car stereo has Bluetooth capability or by using an mp3 jack to plug their phone in directly.
WEKU online broadcasts at 128 kilobytes online which means the signal quality is excellent. Listeners who use WEKU online will incur usage charges on their cellular data mobile plans if they are not connected to wireless internet.
Data Usage Example: Listeners who tune in for 18 hours on their smart phones would use a total of 1 gigabyte of data or 1 gb. By comparison, one hour of streamed HD video would use the same 1 gb of data.
