Radio Station Update

Thursday, November 25, 2021 2:09 PM

The new location for the Oart 15 AM radio stations will be Hartford City, Indiana.  The new property needs some cosmetic work before it will be ready for occupancy.  I’m hoping that I can relocate by early Summer 2022 and then hit the airwaves shortly afterward.  Teh new location will offer a vastly better yard for proper installation of the Rangemaster transmitters which in turn will achieve the best range possible for the mere 100 milliwatts of power that these transmitters use.  Formats for both stations are not yet in place and will be determined by the time I relocate.  

At present AM 1580 WNKC and AM 1620 KWAQ will continue to air their respective formats for now.  It is probable that KWAQ will be taken off the air during the winter while WNKC will continue to stay on the air for a few more months.  Most of the learning process with the new automation software is now complete and only a few more tests with the current formats need to be done.
