    Update:

    WHEE failed at sign-on this morning. We had a multiple card failure in the transmitter. Fortunately we had parts on hand for repairs. WHEE returned to air this afternoon at 3:02 PM.

    Due to repairs being made, there will be no live programming Friday morning.

    As many of you know, the WHEE transmitter encountered multiple component failures just after sign-on Monday morning. Our engineer made the necessary repairs and returned us to air at 3:02 PM Monday afternoon. An hour and a half later the transmitter had shut off once again due to additional component failure. Tuesday, the new damage was assessed and parts had to be ordered as we had exhausted our backup supply. Delivery arrived Wednesday evening and our engineer has been onsite all day trying to get us back on the air. The problem has been determined to be far more extensive than what was initially thought. We have had to order more replacements from multiple sources and have been promised delivery no later than Saturday morning. Our engineer will be on site as soon as the parts arrive and try to get us back on the air for our weekend programming. Due to our programming commitments, beginning tomorrow morning at 6 AM, WMVA will begin carrying some of WHEE's programming. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

    With new parts arriving yesterday and today, we have worked all day trying to get WHEE Radio back on the air. Unfortunately, the problem has not been resolved. It will be Monday before additional parts can be ordered and circuits that are causing the problem can be analyzed and repaired.


    Temporarily, as of Sunday morning, 12:01 AM, we will begin carrying WHEE's programming on WYAT-TV and WMVA when it does not conflict with existing scheduled local programming. We'll have a temporary schedule up shortly.

    We are also streaming here: http://www.whee.net/stream/

    WHEE returned to the air at 8:30 AM this morning after our engineer devised a temporary workaround. We are back on the air!
