Station hit by lightning

107.2 The Wyre, the radio station serving Kidderminster, Bewdley, Stourport & Stourbridge lost transmission for around five hours yesterday (Monday 12th June 2006) due to lightning which made a direct hit on the station’s transmitter mast.

Emergency engineers worked hard to install new equipment and a full service returned to the airwaves at 11:00am. At least they won’t have tha problem again, as lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice. Does it?

107.2 The Wyre launched in September 2005, and is owned by the Midland News Association.
