KETR-FM 88.9 was off the air Thursday, July 26th, because two guys climbed the tower! But they were supposed to be there.
Every 7-10 years, broadcast towers must be painted. Now that the rain has ended, Thursday (July 26) was the day for a tower crew to climb the nearly 400 foot KETR stick south of Commerce High School. This required turning off the transmitter.
