A message from General Manager, Mark Keefe:

Richmond, we can’t thank you enough for your patience with our signal in your neighborhood. We have been working hard to do all we can to be ready to make the technical adjustments that we are hopeful will get us back on the air. We’ve purchased new equipment, completed all the paperwork and are just waiting for the final notice from the company that owns the tower our antenna is housed on. We have a tower crew on standby, so the moment we get the green light we’re ready to move. We’ll send all of our members a notice once we’re back up, so cross your fingers. We’re hoping it’s very soon.

If you haven’t become a member yet, please take a moment and make a contribution. You’re helping to fund everything you enjoy about WNRN and enabling us to make improvements in all areas of our operation.
Thanks again, and stay tuned.

Update on Richmond Signal – 8.29.14

Update on WNRN in Richmond

As we head into the long Labor Day weekend, I want to give you an update on the progress of resuming broadcasting on the WNRN translator in Richmond/Midlothian.  We continue to seek permanent solutions to having the signal as strong and clear as is allowed, and to that end we have purchased a strong receive antenna to give ourselves the best chance of receiving a clean and consistent signal from our main broadcast tower on Carter Mountain in Albemarle county. Our next step is to install the new antenna with a tower crew scheduled for the second week of September.  While we believe that this will work, we won’t know for certain until it has been installed and tested, so we continue to seek out other options to solve this issue permanently.  We’ll keep you posted each step of the way.

We have heard from many of you, our members, and are inspired by your passion about what you hear on WNRN and the fact that you’re not able to hear it in your cars and on your home receivers.

Thank you for your patience and understanding of the situation – please continue to check back here for updates.

I hope you have a safe and restful Labor Day weekend,

Mark Keefe

General Manager/Program Director
