KSUI returns to the air in the Dubuque area

KSUI-FM, the classical public radio service of the University of Iowa, is back on the air in Dubuque at a new frequency, 101.7 FM. The station changed its frequency to avoid interference from a station being built in Wisconsin.

"Dubuque listeners have been calling to ask when we'd be back," says KSUI program director Joan Kjaer. "Fortunately, it took only a week."

According to KSUI's chief engineer, Jim Davies, the switch to a new translator has had a side-benefit: a greatly improved sound. "That wasn't why we made the change," he says, "but it is a nice dividend."

KSUI broadcasts in the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids area at 91.7 FM. It offers locally- produced classical music programming daily, along with national broadcasts like the Metropolitan Opera, "A Prairie Home Companion," and "St. Paul Sunday." KSUI also offers a locally produced jazz on weekend evenings in a program called "As Night Falls."
