Lake City Translator Off the Air

Jul 25, 2017
Jeff Reynolds

 

To our Lake City Listeners-

KVNF's Lake City translator is down for repairs. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are ordering necessary replacement parts & making preparations to go up & make repairs. We will keep you posted as we have updates.

Lightning has apparently once again zapped our receiving equipment on Round Top, interrupting the KVNF signal into Lake City. We are awaiting delivery of replacement parts, and will get the 88.7 translator back on the air just as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you can stream KVNF here. Thanks for your patience.

KVNF's Lake City translator is down for repairs. We apologize for the inconvenience. Lake City listeners can still tune us in online at KVNF.org.

We hope to have everything back up & running in a few days.

The North Fork Valley in Delta County opened to settlers in the early 1880's. The founders of Paonia, Hotchkiss and other communities in the area lived in Hinsdale County's Lake City before coming to the valley. As part of our Local Motion episode on community roots, KVNF's Laura Palmisano interviewed North Fork Valley historian and author Chuck Farmer to find out more about the area's connection to Lake City. Farmer co-authored the book "In the Footsteps of the Hotchkiss Brothers" with his wife Mary.
