The University awarded a contract for Northern Public Radio Transmitter.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
The Northern Public Radio transmitter cannot broadcast without these repairs. This is a FCC violation. This is the main transmitter that feeds the LaSalle, Sterling, Freeport and Rockford repeaters. Without this, no WNIJ broadcasting can occur. This affects 60,000 listeners, including donors and advertisers.
