The transmission line blow-out Friday for Regent’s WZPW-FM Peoria, IL was not the result of someone shooting at it, as reported yesterday by RBR. Rather, VP/GM J.R. Greeley says it was the result of a broken line hanger allowing the transmission line to rub against the tower and wear through the insulation. Chief Engineer Jerry Scott restored broadcasting at low power on Friday morning and the station expects to be back at full power by this Friday, August 17th.
