KJJP-FM 105.7 is currently operating at 15% of power, limiting its signal strength and range in the Amarillo-Canyon area. This due to complicated problems with its very old transmitter. Local engineers are continuing to work on the transmitter and are consulting with the manufacturer to diagnose and fix the problems. We apologize for this disruption and service as we work as quickly as possible to restore KJPFM to full power. In the mean time you can always stream either the HPPR Mix service or HPPR Connect service using the player above or the HPPR app.

After Years of Being Hunted, Celebrated Alaskan Wolf Pack May Be Gone Forever

One of the world’s most famous wolf packs may be gone thanks to years of excessive hunting, reports The Guardian.

Alaska’s wolves were celebrated in novels by Jack London, and the East Fork pack has been studied for longer than any other collection of wolves on earth.

The East Fork wolf pack was first researched in the 1930s. These predators were the first to provide detailed accounts of wolf behavior and ecology. They live near Denali, North America’s tallest mountain, and they have been hunted and trapped for decades.

Earlier this year their number had been reduced to just one known female, a male and two pups. Hunters were recently seen with the carcass of the radio-collared male wolf. There has been no sign of the female or her pups.
