NOAA Weather Radio station KXI-48 (162.450 MHz) is broadcasting on reduced power due to an equipment malfunction.  Although the station remains on the air and is being received in much of Jasper County, many other locations that would normally receive programming from this station will not receive a clear broadcast.  

When working at full power, this station covers southeast Illinois including Effingham, Greenup, Marshall, Newton, Robinson, Olney, Flora, Lawrenceville, Fairfield, and Albion.

At this point a timeline for restoring the station to full power is unknown, but it will be in this degraded condition into the week of Sept. 20th-26th.
