KDVS is now back on the air! Tune in 90.3fm and kdvs.org.
A contractor on campus cut a major power line and left the scene of the incident, forcing University officials to search for the damaged line using troubleshooting. The contractors are now working closely with the University to make sure this doesn't happen again during the course of construction.
KDVS was off the air on and off from 4:40pm to about 8:30pm on July 26th as intermitent power outages took the station off the air. The General Manager and Chief Engineer decided to take the station off of the air until the station had stabilized, worried that the constant power fluctuations would damage equipment.
UC Davis Facilities and management was not responsible for the power outage and is now making sure that the private contractors on campus operate under their direct supervisions to prevent another power outage of this nature.
Thank you for your understanding.
