WHQR no longer at low power!

May 31, 2017

Note: WHQR 91.3 returned to full power shortly before 1 pm, Thursday 6/1. Thank you for your patience.


Dear friend of WHQR,

If you're having trouble picking up 91.3 today, you're not alone. We have been operating on low power since Monday night. Thanks to George Scheibner, John McHarry and our consulting engineer Jobie Sprinkle, we have identified the problem as a failed power supply for the main transmitter.

Late Tuesday afternoon we ordered a replacement power supply, and we are hopeful that by tomorrow (Thursday), we should  be back at full power.

In the meantime,  we are at low power on 91.3fm. This means that

  • Our HD1 and HD2 signals are not operational
  • Our Classical HQR translator in Myrtle Beach is also silent when the HD is out of service
  • HQR News in Myrtle may be affected as well
  • The good news is that 92.7 in Wilmington is broadcasting Classical HQR uninterrupted
  • Both streams are live on whqr.org
  • Both are live on our new smartphone app.

We know how much you depend on continuing to receive WHQR. We are determined to restore full service as soon as possible. Thank your for your patience.

Sincerely, Cleve Callison, Station Manager
