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.
