Early Thursday 1/22/15, GLT's main transmitter shut down and would not restart. We are now broadcasting on our backup transmitter. As a result, GLT listeners outside of McLean County will have problems picking up our broadcast signal, if they can pick it up at all.
After extensive troubleshooting, our engineers, with the help of a tower crew, have determined the problem is the main GLT antenna.
As of 1/28/15, we are planning to bring in another tower crew to bring all or part of the damaged antenna to the ground for further analysis. We still do not know the extent of the problem or how long repairs will take. It appears GLT will be broadcasting at low power for an extended period of time.
We're very sorry for the inconvenience. Please continue to check back here for updates on our progress. Thank you for your patience.
