WDXD-LP 101.9 in on the air!

After about 10 days of testing,WDXD-LP is now legally on the air in Tallahassee.

The FCC granted our license to cover today.

I will update the website soon with more details. I have been under the gun to get the station built before our original construction permit expired on August 6. Today we are on the air as a terrestrial radio station!

I am most grateful to everyone who had a part in helping with WDXD.

Now the REAL work begins...

WDXD-LP 101.9 to launch mid-2015

I have quite a bit to share with you!

WDXD-LP is set to begin testing a signal on 101.9 within a couple of months. East Coast Tower of St. Augustine has been hired to handle construction of the station's 180 foot tower. That work should begin in mid-March. I am paying for this through a $13,000 family loan.

Otherwise, only an LPFM certified transmitter remains on the "must have" list. Depending on the support and funding, I plan to buy either a NX350 ($1700) or a BW TX300v2 ($3,345.)

Also on my wanted lust is an udated computer for on-air use. My current computer bit the dust so it is repair or replace time.

The IRS has granted our application for 51c3 non-profit status.  Contibutions may be tax deductible to you.

Application pending for 501(c)3 nonprofit designation

After a relatively strong start earlier this year, financial contributions have slowed. We previously raised, and have spent, around $8,000 on construction of WDXD.

We still need to raise around $5000 for the transmitter and EAS gear. Also, the tower construction will require about $3,000 to complete. The remaining gear has been purchased and paid for, or has been donated.

In an effort to be more appealing to donors, we have applued for full charitable 501(c)3 status, giving us the ability to offer write-offs and tax deductions to contributors.

In the meantime, please consider helping WDXD sign on with a financial contribution. We offer underwriting announcements to any business, individual, or group that helps to sponsor us.

WDXD-LP construction

As of September 30, the WDXD-LP studio is nearly complete. Heat and air conditioning have been in place since spring. Since my last post, donations of gear, printers, a computer, a fax machine, and an antenna have come in. Several donations of music have been made.

At this time I am short of funds to purchase the transmitter and EAS equipment. The tower must still be built, and there is a chance the tower construction will be totally funded soon.

The station is remaining, for the most part, debt free. I plan to pay off the balance of the double ay antenna in October.

We still need to raise at least $5000 to put WDXD on the air. If you are willing and able to help, please consider doing so. Checks can be made out to Delta Star Radio and sent to: WDXD-LP, 2625 Doll Place, Tallahassee, FL 32311.

Thanks to all 34 of our sponsors and donors to date.

Clarification of underwriters/sponsors

I want to take a moment to clarify our sponsors and underwriters guidelines for WDXD.

This site originally was for the Internet-only Big D Country station, which could accept traditional advertising. Some portions of the site still need to be changed. When I attempted to edit the page headers, for some reason I couldn't edit them. Eventually I will figure it out.

Underwriters are businesses and individuals that support the station. It is not really about marketing and advertising. It is about supporting the effort to bring a unique radio station, format, and programming to Tallahassee.

Our programming will include:

Country/classic country/crossover MOR (Monday-Saturday)

Local community programs (Saturday)

Classic contemporary Christian music (Sunday)

Southern and country gospel (Sunday evening)

 

Announcements may not contain calls to action or qualitative statements. They may include business name, address, phone number and website.

For those who have made donations of goods, and/or financial contributions, thank you very much. It is very much appreciated. I still need to raise around $9,400 to complete construction of WDXD.
