Equipment Lowdown…

Not hearing us recently at 91.1 FM? AT&T have been upgrading their tower in Skagway and as a result, we lost our signal and KHNS was off the air on our translator frequency  until the work was completed. We lost it longer than we thought and  had some generous help in solving (and fixing) the problem with Tom Cochran of AP&T, Daniel Papke (KHNS DJ) and the talented crew at AT&T who, once they heard we were having issues, hopped a plane to Skagway in the first weather window and, as far as we can tell, all is good.

The Freeride planned to hold its competition at a site called ‘The Venue,’ near Little Jarvis Glacier, Tuesday morning. After about two hours of waiting, the Freeride announced on its Facebook page that it would postpone the competition for safety reasons. The Facebook post said organizers decided to wait for the snowpack caused by recent precipitation to stabilize.
