A Note about iTunes:  despite its popularity, iTunes is known to be problematic to use as a streaming player.  Generally we recommend Winamp (Windows), Realplayer (Windows or Mac) or Windows Media Player (Windows), if possible.

Droid: we recommend RadioTime's TuneIN app, available via the Droid Market.  There is a free version that has visual ads, and a paid version that has no ads.

iPhone: we recommend the Live365 Radio app, available via the iPhone App Store.  It is free for regular use, and includes a five-day VIP trial as well.
Blackberry: should natively stream WHWS by clicking this link:  If not, try the Nobex Radio Companion.  There's a free version with ads, and a premium version (monthly fee) w/o ads.

Windows Mobile 6.x: we recommend GSplayer.  This is an older software, but is quite simple, straightforward, and generally works.

Please note - we cannot provide any tech support for third-party software like the above software programs.

Broadcasting on 105.7FM in the Finger Lakes

WHWS broadcasts with 100 watts from a tower on top of the Winn-Seeley Gymnasium on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus in Geneva, New York, on the north shore of Seneca Lake, largest of the Finger Lakes.  The signal reaches approximately 10 to 15 miles out from Geneva, covering Waterloo, Seneca Falls, Phelps, and parts of Penn Yan, Clifton Springs, Ovid, and Canandaigua.

Click the map at left for a full-size coverage map of WHWS.  Red is "strong reception" where almost any radio should pick up WHWS.  Blue is "normal reception" where most radios should hear 105.7 clearly.  Grey is "fringe reception" and may require a higher quality antenna and/or radio.  Please note, this map is an approximation of coverage, and that local terrain, weather conditions, quality of radio/antenna, and a host of other factors can affect perceived reception of WHWS.  Some areas that show good coverage may not be good for you and your radio, and some areas that show no coverage may be just fine.

Over 50,000 people live within WHWS's broadcast range, plus the approximately 2000 students and 300 staff of HWS.

WHWS is licensed with the FCC as a LP100-Class "LPFM" (Low Power FM) station.  The license is held by the Smith Center for the Arts (parent organization of The Smith Opera House) and operated by HWS at their discretion.
