KSUI returns to the air in the Dubuque area
KSUI-FM, the classical public radio service of the University of Iowa, is
back on the air in Dubuque at a new frequency, 101.7 FM. The station changed
its frequency to avoid interference from a station being built in Wisconsin.
"Dubuque listeners have been calling to ask when we'd be back,"
says KSUI program director Joan Kjaer. "Fortunately, it took only a week."
According to KSUI's chief engineer, Jim Davies, the switch to a new translator
has had a side-benefit: a greatly improved sound. "That wasn't why we
made the change," he says, "but it is a nice dividend."
KSUI broadcasts in the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids area at 91.7 FM. It offers
locally- produced classical music programming daily, along with national broadcasts
like the Metropolitan Opera, "A Prairie Home Companion," and "St.
Paul Sunday." KSUI also offers a locally produced jazz on weekend evenings
in a program called "As Night Falls."
