The Hudson Valley Project - Signal Improvement


Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

The Hudson Valley Project will help give better reception to our listeners and we are seeking your support. 

We have started a gofundme campaign to help raise funds for this new Hudson Valley signal: Click here to participate.

Much of our old 105.3 signal is being interfered with, due to a competing translator signal in Newburgh, NY. It is wiping out our old coverage in many areas to the south of Esopus NY.  It is also interfering in areas never suspected, like West Hurley, Shokan, and north of New Paltz.  

We really need your help to launch a new signal that will give us better coverage.  Please help us.

The Hudson Valley Project

Please help us improve our signal in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

If you live in the Hudson Valley and are a listener to Redeemer, you know that our coverage has become worse. Perhaps you listen to 105.3 FM in the Kingston or Port Ewen area. We come in pretty good there with our little 10 watt signal, but when you drive towards New Paltz, you lose us. Especially now that there is another signal that is interfering with us on 105.3.  

This Newburgh interfering signal is causing us problems to 105.3 in West Shokan, Shokan, West Hurley and the Hurley flats. The problem is a high-powered translator (legally) located in Rock Tavern, placed on the air, and our little translator is just no match. 

We also have listeners to 105.3 in Hyde Park and further south into Northern Poughkeepsie.  Here too, the interference is adversely affecting our signal. 

We need your help. 

Maybe you live in Olivebridge and tune us in on 88.3 FM, but when you travel on 213 West, you lose our signal right around the area where the NYC aqueduct crosses under the highway!  

Perhaps you live near Catskill and travel to Northern Saugerties and you listen on 101.1 FM. But as you travel a bit more south, you lose our signal. As you travel into Poughkeepsie you lose our signal, and interference kicks in. Pleasant Valley coverage is spotty at best, especially with the new interference on 105.3. 

We have a NEW signal that we can implement that will greatly improve our coverage and bless many people!

Please help us - the future of Redeemer depends on this new signal.   

We call this 
The Hudson Valley Project.  If you would like to know more and would consider giving to this project, please send your donation to:

 
Redeemer Broadcasting
P.O. Box 1520
Olivebridge, NY  12461

In round figures the equipment will cost us just under $50,000 to build this much-improved signal.  

If we get the support we need, this new signal could be a reality before the end of this year!  

If you are sincerely interested in helping us, and would like to learn more, please email us at ministry@redeemerbroadcasting.org 

Thank you.




WXMD back to normal operations late Sunday evening


Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Thanks be to God that WXMD was returned to normal operations late Sunday evening 7/02. The faulty piece of equipment was identified, procured, programmed and replaced. We praise the Lord for the involvement of a number of folks here in the network. Praise God for our Chief Engineer George, and former Chief Engineer Robert. Thanks to Carole for monitoring us from her location in Virginia, and to Andrew for technical guidance on a key conference call. Thanks to Stephen for determining the best replacement, and one that was available in nearby Lexington Park and could be picked up.

WXMD Southern Maryland temporarily on backup programming


Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

We have a technical problem at WXMD that we are working on.  

The problem began approximately 7:30 PM last night.  As soon as the problem occurred, our Network Operations was aware and started working on it. We have identified a bad piece of equipment at our transmitter site and will be replacing that today.  

In the meantime we are airing music, while all regular programming will return just a soon as the equipment failure is corrected.  Thanks for your patience and prayers for us.
