WAMU Broadcasting At Lower Power

 

WAMU 88.5 is part of American University (AU), and our tower and transmitter are located on the AU campus. Over the next few days, WAMU’s stations will be moved to generator power at times to accommodate AU campus construction.

AU anticipates that we will be on generator power as follows:

  • Thursday, October 10 from 10 p.m. to Friday, October 11 until about 6 a.m.
  • Saturday, October 12 from about 5 a.m. until about 6 a.m.

We do not anticipate that this will cause problems with WAMU’s transmissions but extend our apologies in advance if this does occur.
