WIMP HEADLINE NEWS...

The station will continue to be off the air for a while.  Unfortunately a problem, a conflict with the new automation sotware and the High Sierra Mac Operating System is preventing the program from utilizing some of its important functions.   I have found the Mojave Operating System will properly play the program but now I have to configure and set up the audio files and software on another computer since the existing automation computer is too old to play Mojave.

When weather permits, I will install the Hamilton Rangemaster transmitter and hope that will improve the range of the station.  I will announce just as soon as I know when the station will be back on the air.

Installation of the current antenna a few feet higher than before has not yielded the desired result.  Range has only slightly improved by another block or two at best.  And noise from the power lines is still eating up the signal.

I will install another transmitter in its place before the end of November and hope that will improve the range to at least a few blocks.  Unfortunately the challenges that exist at this location cannot be corrected since they exist on adjacent properties that I do not own.

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.
