Q: I heard the WSYD radio in Mount Airy was damaged by lightning around the 4th of July. It’s been about three weeks and they’re still off the air. Are they definitely off the air?

Answer: No, it just takes a while for the repairs to be completed, said Kelly Epperson, a spokeswoman for the alumni radio station.

“The WSYD AM 1300 transmitter was directly struck by lightning on the evening of July 2.”

The blow caused severe damage to parts of the transmitter and had to be replaced.

“We had to wait for one of the parts to be built, tuned and tested,” Epperson said. “Shipping is expected this week from Louisiana with parts installed by our engineer thereafter.

“We look forward to being back on the air soon.”
