WIMP HEADLINE NEWS...

October 20, 2019

The new outdoor antenna will be installed next weekend.  We hope this will not only increase the coverage area of the station but also reduce the humming noise somewhat.  

We are testing new automation software right now that appears to show more promise of reliablity than the existing software.  If this proves true, we will utilize the new program by December.  Also, we will be working in eliminating the audio processing glitch that results in it stopping to work every few weeks and freezes the computer requring a reset.


October 5, 2019

Installation of the new Antenna and Antenna Tuning Unit will occur before the end of this month.  We hope the range of the station will increase from just a couple of blocks to perhaps a mile from the station.  This will allow us to reach thousands of potential listners in Covington and nearby Newport.

We are still having trouble with software for both automation and also the new audio processing program.  Please be aware that there will likely be disruptions fo the audio programming on the station from time to time while we work to resolve these issues.  This is new software and will take time to correct the problems.
