On this page, you will find some reports
of stations being burglarized or vandalized:
12/17/09 10:29AM (updated 12/30/09)
The transmitter, an MW-50 was gutted, as was the co-located studio. The loss was calculated at over $100,000.
The station had been off the air - and is for sale - and with no power on at the site, any security systems were defeated.
Police are investigating.
" Nearly everything was taken. The station's Harris MW-50 was "meticulously" stripped of modules, wires, boards, and even knobs. The thieves used wire-cutters, screwdrivers, and even saws.
"As this was also the station's studio location, the console, microphones, CD players, and computers are gone as well including a new Google/ Scott SS32 automation system.
"Processing, EAS, receivers, and practically everything from the racks was gone."
