(ABC 6 NEWS ) -- It’s been nearly a year since 106.9 KROC FM disappeared for the majority of Southeast Minnesota and all of Iowa. Now it’s back. 

Station management says a 50-year-old antenna went down and took much of the power with it. Following that, the station could almost only be heard in Rochester.

The static has now been replaced by normal programming thanks to repairs, and that station is almost at full-power.

We’re told ice storms and bad weather early this spring is blamed for the delay in repairs.
