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.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is seeking the perpetrators of the unlawful killing of big game animals in western and north-central Nebraska, reports The Lincoln Journal-Star.

On Oct. 17 the remains of four buck pronghorns were discovered on private land south of Kimball. The heads of three of the animals had been taken, along with some of the meat. Meanwhile, officials also discovered a dead cow elk, left to rot near the road to Smith Falls northeast of Valentine. The animal is believed to have been shot on Oct. 14 or Oct. 15. Rewards of as much as $1,000 are being offered for information leading to conviction of people responsible for the animals’ deaths.

Contact Conservation Officers Scott Brandt of Gering at 308-631-0663 or Frank Miller of Valentine at 402-389-0444 or call Nebraska Wildlife Crimestoppers at 800-742-7627.
