NPR Digital Services will be performing routine maintenance on the DS streaming encoders on Tuesday, March 29.

Maintenance Window:

5:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Please note, the stream may go down temporarily while the system processes the updates and reboots. We will closely monitor the situation. Thank you for your patience.

Updated 2:00 p.m. Friday: We are back online at these stations. Thanks for your continued patience!

Boise State Public Radio's three McCall stations are currently offline. The problem may also be affecting two translators in Cascade and Lake Fork/New Meadows. Our engineers are working to diagnose the issue and we'll post updates here as we learn more. We apologize for the loss of programming and are working to restore service as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience. 

As a listener of Boise State Public Radio, you've likely noticed inconsistencies in our audio signal on KBSX. We recently upgraded to a new digital audio processor and that change has created the inconsistencies you're hearing. The Boise State Public Radio engineering staff worked to fix the issues over the weekend and continues to do so. The matter is their top priority.

As we continue to make adjustments, we appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconveniences. 

We'll continue to post updates as things progress. 

Boise State Public Radio will have an outage tonight, Thursday, July 23, between 11 p.m. and 12 a.m. on stations carrying KBSX and KBSK (including streaming) while our satellite receivers are undergoing maintenance. Any loss of signal should be minor, but may occur more than once until maintenance is complete. 

Thank you for your patience.

Update: The feed has been restored as of 5 p.m. However, switching between the KBSX and KBSU feeds has been disabled temporarily. We are working on a solution, but do not yet have an estimated completion date on a full service repair. In the meantime, K292EK Stanley will re-broadcast programming from 90.3 KBSU. 

Original post: Boise State Public Radio's service in the Stanley area has been off the air since approximately 4 p.m. Wednesday due to power problems and an interference complaint. It's not clear yet when the necessary repairs will be completed.
