Impact Broadcast Signal Update

Hello Impact lovers and listeners alike!

The past month has been a rough patch for you, as well as the 200+ MSU students that make 88.9 your favorite radio station. As you may know, our broadcast signal strength has been greatly reduced since early December due to weather damage to our transmitter wire. Since our last update we have gotten our damaged equipment evaluated, and have hired a crew to begin repairs on our transmitter permitting weather. Though we are not back on-air yet, this is a major step forward in the process to getting there. Impact hopes to be back at full strength in time for our 25th Birthday Celebration Concert on February 20th with The Soul & The Sun alongside Flint Eastwood. We have a lot of surprises to unveil in appreciation to our fans for 25 years of listening, so please hold tight as Impact looks to come back better than ever!

Samuel Riddle,
Station Manager

Staff Year End List: Assistant Music Director Stacey Karl’s Top 10 Albums of 2013

1. Thee Oh Sees–Floating Coffin

I pre-ordered this record without even hearing it because, 1. I was pretty fond of the album art and 2. It’s THEE OH SEES.  Needless to say I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest.  John Dwyer is basically the reason I keep living.  He turned 39 this year and is still the master of all that is psych-rock.

Impact 89FM’s Broadcast Signal Strength Temporarily at Minimal Power

East Lansing, Mich – On December 11th, 2013, an issue with the Impact 89fm (88.9 WDBM-FM) transmission system caused the main transmitter shutdown during the evening broadcast. Upon inspection by the chief engineer, it was determined that the problem was not with the transmitter itself, but with the transmission line leading to the transmitter. The chief engineer was able to get one of Impact 89FM’s transmitters to power on and broadcast at a significantly reduced power. We continue to broadcast at this reduced power setting until the system can be evaluated and repaired.
