Our New Frequency and Better Reception are REAL!
As of a little over a year ago (December 28th 2015) we have been transmitting on 94.5 fm from our brand new 65 foot tower and transmitter at our new location 3 miles north of the East Warren Schoolhouse. It’s been a long road and a lot of work and money expended to achieve this goal but we are finally able to reach all of Warren and most of the Valley with our 100 watt fm signal. There are even reports of listeners in Stowe and Calais! The new tower and location also will eventually benefit the Waitsfield-Fayston Fire Department, who intend to share the common infrastructure & costs and will be using the tower and shed for their enhanced two-way communications.
We have many people and organizations to thank for making this huge improvement possible. Due to space constraints the following list is only a partial one. First we are indebted to the generosity of Christy and Peter Geyer and Geyer Construction for hosting the tower and equipment shed on their land, and to their neighbors who have graciously allowed the project to proceed. Additional thanks go to Tom Boyle and the Warren Fire Department for operating their ladder truck at the site to help raise the tower; to Yestermorrow Design/Build School, whose students constructed much of the equipment shed, to the friends of WMRW who donated their time to various essential tasks; and to the many generous donors who contributed to the costs of the project, including but not limited to: The Valley Rotary, Pat Ryan & Hilary Stock, The Donahue Family, The Zoot Fund, Dennis Derryberry & Jenifer Tuck, Liz & John Levey, Michael and Sheila Getzinger, Luis Gomez and Jennifer Harrison , and Ann Day.
We also are very grateful to our Business Underwriters who help keep this station running day to day. Our listeners and Programmers are your customers.
