KWSS 106.7 FM May Be Back on the Air in "Five to Eight Days"

Local independent radio station KWSS 106.7 FM, which went off-air this week, will hopefully be back on terrestrial radio in "optimistically, five to eight days," according to station manager Frank Magarelli.
Magarelli says the station has voluntarily gone off-air while seeking to move to another frequency. "We were working on a long-term project to move to a new channel, a clearer channel," he says. "And when you do something like that, you file permits to move equipment and such. We gained a waiver to do that, but the waiver expired. So we had to revert to our pre-waiver facilities and setup. We went off-air a couple days to devote ourselves to the project."
"Once we get a confirmation receipt for the waiver and change [of frequency], we'll go back on air," he adds. "We look forward to getting back on terrestrial radio."
In the meantime, KWSS is still streaming online, and will host a benefit show on July 30 at Club 910.
