Here is an update on the progress of our new Harpswell Radio Station.
We are making steady progress in constructing our radio station. We have recently installed the “hardline” cable on the tower and in the coming days will be installing an antenna on it’s mounting 80 ft up in the air. Work is continuing repairing and upgrading the components of our initial transmitting system and by the end of the month we will begin preliminary testing on air.
The electronics building is in the process of getting a “makeover” and before too long we will be able to connect electrical power and start installing equipment. It’s been a slow process but with a small group of dedicated individuals we have been able to get to where we are today.
On Tuesday October 11 we will be hosting an introduction to radio and preliminary DJ training session at the Cundy’s Harbor Library. The session will be 5:00 – 7:00 pm. The program will offer hands-on training with the equipment and time in front of a microphone. If you’ve thought about the possibility of someday getting on the air, this is the time to come and see if it’s for you. Everyone is welcome, even if you’d just like to observe. Hope to see you there,
