A nearby lightning strike Sunday night takes KACU off the air.
KACU, or Abilene Christian University's public radio station, is recovering Monday after an electromagnetic pulse from a lightning strike knocked out it's Studio Transmitter Link.
This is the device responsible for sending radio waves to a tower that then sends them to the radio.
Normally operation resumes shortly after but this hasn't been the case.
Because this is the only digital unit used in the area for radio transmission, the part had to be ordered from California.
Once the part arrives, engineers can install it quickly and, hopefully, be back on the air Tuesday afternoon.
In the meantime, those who are in need of a public radio fix can still listen to the streaming radio on KACU's website.
On your mobile device you can also download the Public Radio app or the NPR News app, and select 'KACU'.
