Why do we need our own tower?
Our own tower means that we can maximize our licensed height and power allowances. Having our own tower should also allow us to become independent of the internet to put our signal on the air. That means as little downtime as is possible, especially in times of severe weather.
Additionally, our own tower means we’ll be able to triple our current power output. Combined with raising our antenna to the maximum allowed height, this power increase should help us penetrate as far as Vinita, Miami, and Chetopa, if not beyond. That means better over-the-air reception for more people who’ll have local news and information, as well as severe weather coverage and emergency information and instructions, as close as their nearest radio and completely free of charge.
All told, the tower project will cost approximately $10,000. We wanted to have a fun and enjoyable fundraiser for the whole family, and Dewayne Bowman & The Swingin’ West Band and The A-Bar Bunkhouse Band have generously donated their performances (for which they are usually paid) to help KVWO raise as much of that amount as possible. We appreciate your support, and we’ll continually do our best to improve KVWO.
If you’d like to donate matching funds for those raised at our event, we’d be ever so grateful. Please contact us at info@WelchOK.com.
