Our Spring Pledge Drive is here!
Right now we are $45,000 in on a transmitter cost of approximately $85,000. We are hoping to raise the balance of $40,000 during this years 2016 Spring Pledge Drive. We hope our listeners can help us secure a new transmitter and reinforce our confidence in broadcasting a strong far reaching signal that you, our listeners, have come to rely on for the past 34 years. We take great pride in our ability to serve the public with outstanding music and excellent, intelligent, local, state, national, and international news not often heard on the normal commercial or corporate media outlets. Pledge your support and help us continue to bring you local broadcasts of events such as the American Birkenbiner, Honor the Earth Pow-wow and so much more.
Why a new transmitter? Because as of right now our current transmitter is 34 years old and past its prime. The Tubes for this unit are becoming more and more and hard to find. Over the past couple years our current Harris Transmitter has been burning out these tubes at a much faster rate than is normal. This is due to the wear and tear of 34 years of continuous use, pumping out 100,000 watts of pure native power, 365 days a year non-stop. It's getting tired and needs to retire. Our new transmitter will assure a strong far reaching signal that will allow us to continue to do what we love to do, and that is to entertain, and bring awareness and unity to all the surrounding communities listening through the air or online at WOJB.org.
