New Yellowstone Public Radio Transmitter Goes Live at 89.1 FM

Yellowstone Public Radio (YPR) is now transmitting at 89.1 FM in the Helena area. The new signal is vertically polarized, so it is best heard on a vertical antenna similar to your car. If you have poor reception at home, you may want to purchase a vertical FM antenna with a signal amplifier.

LCPRA continues to translate YPR on 96.7 FM, but eventually that frequency will be transferred to a new owner as agreed to in the FCC settlement that allowed YPR to get the new transmitter.

Thanks to YPR for all their efforts to secure their signal in Helena!
