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:
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?
