From October 12-15, KUAC TV and FM satellites will be affected by sun outages. These outages occur when the satellite upon which our antenna is focused passes in front of the sun and the signal is lost in the noise. Please expect outages anywhere between 2 and 5 minutes during the 10 o’clock morning hour. All services will resume as the signal returns. We thank you for your patience during this seasonal occurrence.
After decades of decline and the loss of millions of jobs — many of them well-paid, specialized vocations that fueled post-War and Cold War housing booms, and educated generations of young people — a new kind of American manufacturing has emerged. It’s leaner, meaner and putting into practice what economists are saying is the recipe for industrial resurgence: use technology to control costs and boost production, rely on risk-taking investors to back the boldest ideas, and, yes, employ fewer workers — but arm them with better education and modern skill sets. Listen for this special series over the next month as Morning Edition explores the new American manufacturing landscape. Tune in weekday mornings from 5 to 8 on KUAC FM, KUAC online, KUAC HD, and KUAC TV 9.5.
