Unusual times call for unusual actions. Such as a City Club summer political pundits forum!

 

Let’s face it. It’s been an uncommonly hectic few months on Capitol Hill, and it doesn’t look like things are likely to quiet down any time soon. And the 2018 Idaho elections are starting to get crowded, and a little bit chippy.

 

Update: As of 3:25 p.m. Thursday, CenturyLink has made their repair and resolved the T-1 issue. Our engineers are currently reconfiguring our program streams back to quality levels. We appreciate your patience during this outage.

Original Post: There has been a CenturyLink T-1 Outage that is affecting the entire Parkcenter area. What does this mean? 

We have lost connectivity to Twin Falls, KBSW, KBSJ and KBSY since 6 a.m. Saturday. We also lost our connection to Deerpoint, KBSU and KBSX. We are operating on the backup STL to Deerpoint so KBSX & KBSU are on the air.

Hiking the Sawtooths. Camping near Stanley. Rafting the Salmon. With summer just around the corner, these are hot topics for Idahoans planning their next seasonal adventure.

 

We've opened the next question round of our "news experiment" and we want to know what you want to know about summer in the Gem State.

 

Good news: K216CD Lower Stanley is back on the air on 91.1 FM. Our engineers were able to get the translator back up with KBSU streaming at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. They have since tweaked audio levels and processing to assure a quality signal.

Jim Jones

This City Club of Boise Forum took place on Tuesday, June 27th and The Grove Hotel in downtown Boise.

Former Idaho Chief Justice, Jim Jones, shares his perspective on ways to treat the world’s ‘huddled masses’.

 

Jim Jones became acquainted with the plight of war victims --refugees and orphans -- during his tour of duty in Vietnam with the U.S. Army in 1968-69.

 

Due to a record-breaking winter and a rather wet spring, we continue to experience issues on KBSS (91.1 FM) with our T-1 connection in Sun Valley. At times, the audio drop-outs have been constant. Some listeners have had success with our alternative signal at 100.3 FM.

Currently, water from the 10 feet of melting snow migrates into riser boxes on site and into the wiring, which is happening frequently this season. The dropouts in the audio are exacerbated by snow cats plowing mountain roads, which creates vibration and earth movement that interfere with our digital feed.

This forum was recorded on June 15, 2017 at the Student Union at Boise State University.

Chief Investment Officer Bob Maynard, and PERSI's team of investment managers discuss the global and national state of the economy, and take questions from the audienceduring the forum.

We are experiencing dropouts on KBSS 91.1 FM today. Our chief engineer is in touch with Century Link and they are working on the problem. We hope to have a fix later Friday afternoon. 

In the meantime tune to 100.3 FM for an alternate signal, or use our web stream to stay connected to your favorite NPR shows.
