I hope that the board of education would replace the transmitter and broadcast again. I don't live in range of 89.7 and (I think) that I heard the 88.1 signal driving in the area.
I enjoyed the 10-15 minutes either side of Ridgewood HS that I could hear the signal, sound was clear and professional and the station had a good eclectic mix of tunes. Sometimes they had a long string of PSA's during my brief drive through the area, ugh, so those times I didn't hear much music.
I told the contact that they should try to bring 89.7 back, with a fundraiser! I think that it's possible that Ridgewood HS got someone at the FCC to overlook that it was an unlicensed station, similar to Marty Zivin's 101.5 that used to operate in Hoffman Estates from his home until his passing a few years ago....
