[Updated 8-23-17]

Radio PHVERN is now on the air, broadcasting from 1610 AM, July 31, 2017 at 13:04.  It’s been a little over a year after the transmitter was purchased, and about seven months after it was completely assembled.

There will be a fixed program for the time being, and it will repeat itself throughout the day.  Broadcast during daytime hours, hopefully on by 9 am and ending about 3 pm, Monday through Friday.

programming trail run

The broadcast area is quite limited. The permanent, longer range antenna has not yet been constructed.  Range with the better antenna should be at least 1/2 mile away from the antenna, up to a mile under good atmospheric conditions.


CPU’s acquired

Ok, so two or three CPU’s are in the works now. One is available, one is on stand-by and almost ready, and a third is about to be delivered but needs upgrades.  The real problem now is space to set all this up as intended.

Change in station concept


Out of necessity I am changing the station concept to be more like a beacon signal and not a standard broadcast format. There have been a number of complications in the last 12 months. Finance to equipment challenges have plagued the idea. Essentially I will burn a CD with limited content and ‘loop’ the audio for broadcast.
