Do we know if WCAP is back at 5 kW DA-2 or still at reduced power (1 kW)? My understanding was that the Harris AM5 was in trouble and that the directional array was literally under water. Hoping to hear some good tech news about my alma mater.

Saturday morning live local hosts 6:00 AM-1:00 PM. Sunday Mornings are brokered shows. Weeknights there are brokered shows from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. Nights and overnights they're still playing the same "Beatles and Before" oldies rotation that's been on since November 2007, although on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday nights from 10:00 to Midnight, "Cindy's Vinyl Vault", a local show, plays vinyl with listener requests, cue burns and all. Most of the vinyl from the WCAP Music Museum out behind the main studio.
