Tower Construction for AM-1700 Completed!

Today, May 24th, an important part of WRCR’s new transmitting facility has been completed. It’s our new 198 foot tower. One important enhancement includes its 7-foot concrete base, which is elevating it above any possible flood water levels.

Here is “The Crew” that built it: In foreground, left to right: Tom Ray, Project Engineer, Dr. Alex Medakovich, President, Alexander Broadcasting, Inc. and, of course, Northeast Towers construction team!




The new WRCR AM-1700 will be broadcasting in standard analog AM, combined with the new digital, crystal clear HD Radio, on the same channel, AM-1700.

What does it mean to you? If you listen in HD, it means clear, crisp audio on AM, which sounds better than satellite radio and is close to FM-quality. It also means the same level of sound fidelity at a distance, as you have close to our transmitter in Rockland. It is a robust technology that overcomes interference from power lines and other sources, like cell phones and other electronic equipment.

We will help you find the right HD Radio receiver and we will also give away quite a few to our loyal listeners, as thay become available!
