KACS Network/Chehalis, WA GM Cameron Beierle gives HisAir and update. Cameron tells HisAir,  “We are temporarily at reduced power due to ice and snow issues, and our de-icers burning out. We were able to bring the transmitter back up slowly to a lower power, and will look into repairs of the antenna after the ice and snow of this week melts, and we get a weather window to diagnose the extent of the problem on the tower.”

Over the weekend ice and snowy weather caused damage to the KACS main FM signal, which effects the entire whole network.
