NEED:

Funds to Repair

WOW 90.9's Transmission Line

 

You may recall that last October, WOW 90.9 was off-the-air for more than a week after taking a direct lightning strike on our tower.  We sustained some damage to the transmitter and major damage to the transmission line that goes from the transmitter to the antenna.  WOW's Engineer determined that we needed to replace more than 500 feet of very expensive copper transmission line.

Over several months, we tried to find used replacement line, and eventually we were put in touch with WKRG News 5 in Mobile, which generously donated all the line that we needed from their unused line supply.  We are so thankful for WKRG and their parent organization NexStar.

Now WOW Radio needs to raise funds to:

  • Transport the cable from Mobile, AL, to WOW 90.9's transmitter site in Castleberry.
  • Purchase all the new mounting brackets, O rings, adapters, and hardware necessary to mount the line to the tower and connect it to both the transmitter and antenna.
  • Hire a tower climbing crew to climb up the 500-plus foot tower to take down the damaged line and install the new line.
  • Complete additional repairs and parts replacements to the existing transmitter.

We want to thank those that gave in our recent one-day Mission: Transmission fundraiser.  Unfortunately, we did not raise all that is needed.  So if you have not given before, we are  asking you to pray and see if the Lord will lead you to give again for this one time capital expenditure for your radio station?  Will you help meet the goal to improve 90.9’s signal?
