PTFP Equipment Replacement Grant

    Grants and Contracts Details

    Description

    WUKY in Lexington Kentucky, a public broadcasting station licensed to the University of Kentucky, requests funding for the replacement of its Master Control audio console, CD players, and HD exporter. We also propose some additional monitoring and datacasting equipment. The audio console is thirteen years old, spare parts are becoming difficult to obtain, and it has begun to be increasingly unreliable. The CD players have reached the end of their useful life. Failures of these key pieces of equipment in our audio chain have caused numerous disruptions of service over the past 18 months. Although our HD exporter is only 4 years old, the technology has been upgraded substantially since we made that initial investment with CPB support. As the only locally-originated source of public radio programming in Lexington KY, WUKY requests consideration under Priority 2.
