WNEQ is off air

We have an outage at WNEQ since 3:24 AM today, and believe it is associated with a Verizon T1 line that is down.  The problem has been reported to Verizon. Thanks for your patience.  




Saturday programming change at 12 Noon EST


Saturday, January 4th, 2020

A Visit to the Pastor's Study is no longer available.  It was airing at 12 Noon on the Redeemer Broadcasting Network and its final broadcast was December 28, 2019. 

Pastor Bill Shishko has become the organizing pastor for The Haven (https://www.thehavenli.com/), a new OPC church currently meeting at 4:30pm on Sundays, at their temporary location of Ascension Lutheran Church, 33 Bay Shore Rd, Deer Park, NY.  

The extreme demands of planting a new church and pastoring it, required that Pastor Bill allocate his full time to the church, along with his wife Margaret. That's the main reason for discontinuation of the progam. The situation was further exacerbated by the fact that WLIE (later WBWD) changed formats and the live slot was no longer available.

Pastor Bill continues to love the radio ministry, and we are glad that he will continue to participate in our program Holding All Things Together for his short 2.5 minute segment each Saturday at 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM.  

In the meantime during our 12 Noon to 12:30 PM EST time, we plan to offer Top News, a 15 minute program called Vocal Point with Dr. Jerry Newcombe, and some music.

Internet restored - on Fiber now


Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

The internet has been restored at the Redeemer main studio that controls all outlying stations in NY, NJ and MD. 

We are thankful to the Lord that the fiber connection is fully implemented and the new IP settings are coded into our router. 

Thank you for all your prayers for us!




Power outage at main studio


Friday, November 1st, 2019

*** Latest news ***

The power and internet are still out.  We were having problems with connectivity to WHVC. 

Wonderfully, our new fiber circuit was still under test into another router, so we manually swiitched over to that, and have regained full connectivity. 

 

From middle of last night:

We have lost power at our main studio and are on generator backup power.  

Additionally, we have lost internet connectivity as well, and are on a backup feed now. 

Very powerful storm in area tonight - many outages in the county.

The area outage is also causing intermittent connections to WHVC and affecting it.  

Thank you for your patience! 




90.3 Newburgh back on the air!


Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

Yesterday we ascended the steep, bumpy, precarious road up to the top of Mt. Beacon.  We were able to locate the failed piece of equipment and got the station back on the air.  Thanks be to God for a safe day and for His wisdom in fixing the problem. 

Our son Tim helped his Dad (me!) and was of great assistance.  It made me wish that we had a used, yet servicable Toyota 4Runner or similar.  The access road to this site is way too much for my little Honda CRV!  Fortunately we did make it however!  It bottomed out one time.  

THANKS BE TO GOD and thank you for your prayers for us. 




Beacon/Newburgh 90.3 signal down


Sunday, October 27th, 2019

We've had some kind of an equipment failure at our 90.3 Mt. Beacon transmitter.  Its too late in the day to go up the mountain.  We will try and get up there tomorrow to see what has happened and attempt to repair it.  In the meantime, if you live in the 90.3 coverage area, please try tuning in to our affiliate station, WHVC 102.5 FM. 

Thanks for your patience.

Sunday, October 27th, 2019
