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

Clarification of underwriters/sponsors
12:02 pm edt
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
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

Getting WDXD built
5:07 pm edt
Here we are nearing the end of June. We have purchased the building, the tower, most of tne studio equipment and have things
lining up as we prepare for WDXD on the FM dial.
To help with construction, I am looking for at least seven sponsors
of $1500 each. This will help with the purchase of the transmitter, antenna, EAS, and tower construction. This will also provide
the underwriter with one year of underwriting announcements.
To help, please contact me at (850) 877-4641 or write us at 2625 Doll Place, Tallahassee, FL

Construction of WDXD-LP continues. We have purchased the tower, and kast weekend, five of us loaded it - 18 sections, each
weighing 70 lbs - and brought it over to the station site.
Next major project is getting the tower permitted and built.
I still need the transmitter, antenna, and EAS in order to get on the air at 101.9.
Once the tower is built, we have
decided to move the radio building adjacent to it. This will save on the length of the transmission line - after all, the
shorter, the better.
We have previously raised, and paid out, $6,921 for the building, tower, music licensing
Still need to raise $6,635 for the remaining items, not counting tower construction expenses.
Please consider making a financial contribution
to help bring classic country radio back to the FM dial in Tallahassee.

Update on WDXD progress
9:12 pm edt
Since receiving our construction permit on Feb.6, I have kicked into high gear to get the station built. The studios are
coming along nicely, with the control room near completion. Wiring of the production studio is nearly done, with the layout
of this area next on the list.
Fundraising also is continuing as we work to reach our $6k goal. This is to help
with the costs of the transmitter, antenna, EAS, and tower. The tower itself is funded, but not the cost of parts and installation.
I am setting a goal of June 15 for signing
the LPFM on the air.
you can help, please call me at (850) 877-4641 or email email@example.com.
Thank you for your support.
