The WHWS Studio


We just cleaned up our studio in anticipated of limited operations beginning next week. This room has never looked better! Yay! Click these icons to check out some pics:

Signal Issue with the Cold & Show

Sometimes when we get a certain combination of cold and snow at our transmitter site (on the HWS campus) then ice will form on the antenna itself. This causes the signal strength to significantly degrade until the ice melts. It doesn't happen all that often considering this is upstate New York, but it seems like it was happening earlier this week.

We apologize for the degraded signal...and if it happens often enough we'll start looking into solutions (either antenna heaters or radomes a.k.a. antenna slipcovers).

Now in Stereo!

The 105.7 signal is now broadcasting in stereo.

In other news, we're in the process of receiving authorization from the FCC to officially change our call letters from "WSAC-LP" to "WHWS-LP". The broadcast studio is about 80% put together as well...I hope to have webcasting up and running within a few weeks.
