“It seems so close – but yet so far” would be an accurate description of the emotions I feel as we inch closer to the on-air signing on of WDXD-LP 101.9 here in Tallahassee.
Finding sponsors and donors has been challenging. As of now I have roughly $8,000 invested in the station. A brand new double bay antenna has just arrived. The tower site field has been recently mowed and mstly cleared. I am awaiting the quote from the tower man, who will be constructing our 180 foot tower.
There have been 34 sponsors and contributors. Some have been in the form of equipment, office items and the like.
Outside of the tower costs (which hopefully we will be fully funded for shortly) I am the transmitter and EAS gear (about $5200) short of the launch. I am now doing radio marathon days in hopes of being on the air by December.
