Through March 4th, KUAC TV and FM satellites have been and will continue to 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 12 minutes and all services will resume as the signal returns. We thank you for your patience during this seasonal occurrence.

KUAC is pleased to announce that after submissions from over 40 Alaskan artists, three finalists, and nearly 750 public online votes, Jennifer Moss’s “Caribou Night” will become the 2015 KUAC poster.
Mark your calendars to meet Jennifer and have your own poster signed at KUAC’s spring fundraiser and poster signing, Saturday, March 7th at Well Street Art Gallery from noon to 4 pm.
Jennifer’s original art piece is gouache and graphite on Yupo paper. She is “…deeply inspired by the long dark winters in Alaska, as they provide a blank canvas for the imagination where anything can lurk. Color in this landscape, although subtle, is alive and takes on great importance, an invigorating reminder of the immediacy of living.” Congratulations Jennifer!

Did you know that your smartphone has an FM radio receiver built in? Request that your wireless carrier unlock the FM chip on your smartphone. Unlocking the FM chip provides constant access to FREE FM radio like KUAC, and provides helpful information during times of emergency when data networks are unavailable. Proving that no matter where you are, FM radio is there when you need it. Also, an active FM tuner on your smartphone reduces the amount of data used each month and saves you valuable battery life.
