Update: The FCC approved our application, we will be going to 100,000 on Friday, 9/30 at 6pm!
Our new antenna is installed, tuned, ready to go! We’ve fired it up to 50,000 watts, which is half power for the time being (also have both HD channels back!). The paperwork has been submitted to the FCC and once they give us the nod, we’ll be good to go to 100,000 watts, the highest allowed power level for an FM radio station!
Even at half power, we have significantly better coverage than our previous 40,000 watt station, which installed in 1978. Although it served us well, we have a brand new, top-of-the-line ERI antenna and brand new transmission line. You should be able to hear us much further out. After we go to 100,000 watts, we expect to be heard up to 70 miles away!
