WMYZ-FM 88.7 is not off the air as I stated on 5/30.  Dean O'Neal has let me know that the station is still on the air, "...Our translator 96.9 W245AZ-Leesburg (which rebroadcasts WMYZ) has been off the air since the tower that it transmits from was damaged from Hurricane Irma. W245AZ will remain silent until a new tower site is found." I apologize for the error.
