Transmitter Power Up Ensures The Bridge Reaches Loyal Listeners

The Bridge (WKNZ-FM, Harrington/Dover, DE) turned on, and dedicated, its brand new state of the art broadcast transmitter Thursday afternoon, June 14.

“Our used tube transmitter has been showing its age”, said Bridge manager Bill Sammons.  “The last time it went off the air, our engineers repaired it by using parts from two bad components and making one good one, but it was obvious that we couldn’t do that for long.”

The new Nautel transmitter project cost nearly $95,000 with 100% of the funds being provided by over 350 Bridge supporters, so when the new unit was turned on yesterday by Bridge listener Terri Engish, it was fully paid for.   The new transmitter is Solid State and is expected to reduce the stations electric power by 50%.  The older transmitter will now be maintained and used exclusively as an emergency back up unit.
