Over the next several weeks Verizon Wireless will be constructing a replacement tower in close proximity to WTIP’s main broadcast antenna above Grand Marais. To assure the safety of the tower construction workers, WTIP will be intermittently reducing our transmitter power. Coverage of our 90.7 signal will be reduced, and may also affect reception of our outlying transmitters in Grand Portage and the upper Gunflint Trail. See more pictures of the tower construction on facebook!
