Hippie Radio 97.5 and The Peak 92.3 Are On Low Power

Methodist MountainThe transmitters on Methodist Mountain for The Peak 92.3, KG 102.9, and Hippie Radio 97.5. Photo was taken in April of 2019.

Last night (Oct. 1st), power was cut to Methodist Mountain as the Decker Fire crested the peak. We were on the front line.

Unfortunately, Methodist Mountain is the home of the highest FM transmitters in America… namely the transmitters for The Peak 92.3, Hippie Radio 97.5, and Mountain Music KGKG 102.9 (and Colorado Central Telecom and EMS radio bands for that matter).

The decision to cut power may have saved our equipment, but also forced us to broadcast on low power. That’s why our usually bright and crisp signals may sound scratchy, or you may have trouble tuning us in.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we would like to get our engineer up the mountain to fix the problem… unfortunately the mountain is on fire.

It could be a while.

In the meantime, we encourage you to download the Heart of the Rockies Radio App, or use the Listen Live players right here on Heart of the Rockies Radio.com. Even if the Decker Fire manages to completely take down our transmitters, we will still be able to broadcast via our online streams and app.

And, of course, you can tune to Eagle Country 104 for the latest news and updates! Eagle Country 104’s transmitter resides on Mt. Princeton.

Thank you for listening to Heart of the Rockies Radio!
