Summer


Friday, August 9th, 2019

We hope you are enjoying your summer.  Summer officially ends on September 23, and if you have not been outside to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine, please give yourself a break and do that. You'll be glad you did. 

This ministry is listener supported and we always go through a "summer slump." That's the time of year when giving dips and we find it a bit more difficult to make ends meet.   

Perhaps you are a new listener to Redeemer and would like to help us. We would appreciate that! 

You can give online here: http://www.redeemerbroadcasting.org/pages/donate.php 

Or you can mail a check to our Post Office address:

Thank you for listening and thank you for shariing!

Celebrating 13 years of online streaming


Thursday, August 1st, 2019

By God's grace this ministry has been streaming our main feed online for the past 13 years.  We began August 1, 2006. Thanks for your prayers for us and also for your financial support that keeps our streaming up and running. 

Many folks do not know about the media licensing that is involved to play our own music online.  We have to pay ASCAP, BMI, SESAC and Sound Exchange.  Plus we have to reguarly submit reports of every song that we play. Further there is a good deal of frustration to get the reports into the correct format for Sound Exchange. We truly need your prayers as we are so terribly overloaded as we attempt to meet the requirements of streaming with almost no staff.  Thank you. 




WNEQ back to normal now


Sunday, July 28th, 2019

We had a glitch that needed tending.   The WNEQ IDs were not airing for a short while.  Sorry about that.  All is well again.  Thanks for your patience! 




WNEQ still having technical problems


Sunday, July 28th, 2019

We are still having some technincal difficulties with WNEQ.  More to follow.  Pray for us. 




WNEQ programming resumed


Thursday, July 25th, 2019

WNEQ is back up and operational.  Thank you for your patience! 

Details:
Verizon finally repaired the T1 feeding WNEQ 90.3 Taylortown. 

The circuit was down from:
      Wednesday 7/17 at 4:44 PM
                  until
       Thursday 7/25 at 2:18 PM,
this according to the timestamps on our Uptime Robot.  The total time down was reported to be 177 hours, 33 minutes and 17 seconds.  That's over 7 days. 

During the time down, we were on backup programming consisting of music and occassional station IDs. 




WNEQ Monday Morning outage update


Monday, July 22nd, 2019

We continue to receive conflicting answers from Verizon as to why we have an outage.  The assessments were made from the Philippines (not here in NY or NJ).  

Our interpretation: Nothing happened over the weekend because no feet on the ground locally.  Excuses were proposed, all of which were fictional.  Finally today, there is a technician in the field, who we hope will actually do something! 

 

Here are some of the many responses so far (most recent at top):

07-22-2019 09:18:06 GMT  "... Status --- The dispatch center is reporting that the technician has arrived on site."

07-22-2019 08:30:56 GMT "... Status --- After completing additional testing we have determined that a dispatch is needed."  

07-22-2019 03:07:26 GMT "... The higher level outage is already restored since 2019-07-21 14:12 GMT."    <<< FUNNY

07-21-2019 21:34:09 GMT "... Correlated Outage --- Your circuit is appended by a Higher Level Outage (HLO) and has been assigned to the High Bandwidth group..."

07-21-2019 08:24:19 GMT "... Incident Isolated - Network analysis has determined that this incident is related to a network issue that is impacting multiple services..."

07-20-2019 11:56:09 GMT  "...We are still seeing ALU T3 port down and will have another group take a look at it."

07-20-2019 11:05:59 GMT  "... the reported DS3 has already been disconnected since 2018."        <<< ALSO FUNNY

07-20-2019 02:11:01 GMT  "... Your circuit is still impacted by a DS3 in New York, NY that is currently down." 




WNEQ Sunday afternoon status update


Sunday, July 21st, 2019

WNEQ continues on backup programming due to a Verizon internet failure.  The latest status from them was given earlier this morning: "Ticket has been cross-referenced to a higher-level outage. High bandwidth technician assigned with pending review on T3 issue. Next update will be provided within an hour or if new information is available."  

Thanks again for your patience.  In the meantime, you may receive our regular programming by loading the Redeemer Broadcasting app on your smart phone and listening to us that way.

WNEQ Outage update - Saturday Morning


Saturday, July 20th, 2019

Saturday morning 7/20  - There is a Verizon outage that is affecting our T1 line that feeds network programming to WNEQ.  We have a ticket open and escalated, but they still are not giving us any estimated up time.

We have already requested an escalation with our transport team to further check the DS3. No estimated time of repair has been noted at this time." 

Thank you for your patience!
