KUAC FM radio will be off the air for six to eight hours Wednesday beginning at 10 a.m. The temporary gap in air time has been scheduled for maintenance of the station’s new transmitter and antenna on Ester Dome. Listeners will still be able to listen to KUAC programming by livestreaming KUAC.org, tuning into KUAC TV on channel 9.6, streaming the National Public Radio app or asking their smart speakers to play KUAC. 

While Fairbanks, Nenana, Delta Junction and Healy will be affected by the outage, Bettles, Eagle, Nome and Tok will still be able to listen to KUAC over the air.
