The broadcast outage for Great Falls Community Broadcasting Company, known as Black Sheep Radio, begins Tuesday to allow technical work and testing to its updated equipment while it waits for a new license from the Federal Communications Commission.
The station's Gary Smith says the outage is expected to last a few weeks. But listeners can still tune in on the Internet.
He said that they're hopeful the FCC will approve their application for a new license.
If the new license is approved, the station's potential audience would go from 35,000 to roughly 135,000.
