Tower’s Next Steps: Meeting with the Local Antenna Advisory Board

November 7, 2017: We are working on putting up a temporary antenna to operate at 2,500 watts. We hope to have it set up soon. We have identified a potential tower in Haverstraw. We have scheduled a meeting with the local Antenna Advisory Board. The AAB represents the Legal, Environmental, Engineering, Building and Planning interests of the Town and they approve all such projects.

We thank Supervisor George Hoehmann, who was personally involved in facilitating the process when another tower in Valley Cottage was being considered. A more permanent solution for our top power of 10,000 watts will come later, from another location.

Meanwhile, our programming, including “The Morning Show with Steve & Jeff,” is available on WRCR.com. We apologize for the inconvenience. Continue to check in on the AM to see if we’re back on the air. You can also check here on our website for updates, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook. Thank you!

DID YOU KNOW?

The new WRCR AM-1700 is 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.
