WATERTOWN — The Border, 106.7 FM, returned to the airwaves about 2 p.m. Friday after the radio station was temporarily shut down at 10 a.m. to install a new broadcast antenna.
Community Broadcasters LLC, which operates the station at 199 Wealtha Ave., installed an antenna valued at about $50,000 to replace its old one, said James L. Levin, president and chief executive officer. The old antenna, which didn’t have ice protection, had become cracked and begun to fail, he said. The new antenna has radomes to protect it from the elements.
Community also will soon replace its transmitter for WATN-AM 1240, another one of its Watertown-based stations, Mr. Levin said.
