WSNC's Harris FM7 Transmitter: The Little Transmitter that Could

WSNC Transmitter Update:

Earlier reports of the transmitter being repaired were premature.  As sometimes happens with old equipment, repairing one piece has exposed problems with other parts of the chain.

For the past week, we have bypassed the main power amplifier of our transmitter and have been broadcasting at 30 Watts instead or our typical 10,000 Watts.  Thanks to the valiant efforts of  our engineer Ed Kasovic, we are back up to 1,000 Watts for the time being.

While this is better than what we had, we are still looking at buying a new transmitter. We are checking our finances, but expect to see a dedicated fundraising campaign dealing with the purchase of new equipment in the near future.

Thank you again for all of your patience.
