KCCU's station in Clinton, Oklahoma (KMCU - 89.1FM) will be undergoing extensive transmitter maintenance on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. 

This will require us to take KMCU off-the-air so as not to irradiate the tower climbers and to facilitate trouble-shooting the physical transmitter itself.

The work is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.

We hope to have the work completed by the end of the day.
