VPR Classical In Middlebury Moving To 90.1 FM
VPR Classical’s Middlebury station, WOXM 89.1 FM, will move to 90.1 FM on October 12, 2015.
The move is necessary because we recently discovered that our 89.1 signal was interfering with the radio system used by VELCO, the Vermont Electric Power Company, to respond to emergencies. As we head into the winter storm season, it's important to be able to dispatch emergency power line workers quickly and reliably. In order to achieve this goal, we've agreed to move Middlebury's VPR Classical station to 90.1 FM.
We will continue to work toward a permanent solution that will allow us to return to using 89.1 FM in the future, which has a larger listening area than 90.1.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while this transition takes place. If you are not able to receive 90.1 FM on your radio, we hope you'll listen at VPR.net, or on your smartphone or tablet.
We’ll post updates here as they become available.
