KCR has recently moved its transmitter and tower to Hall Street. This costs money. We have had to pour concrete, purchase tower parts, and hire a broadcast engineer to do an engineering brief. As well, we are planning to make the bold step to broadcast in stereo. This will require the purchase of new equipment to make this happen. We are aiming to raise $10,000 to make all of this a reality. We are looking for donations that will go directly to this effort. To date, 16 people have donated $100 each to our campaign. As well, the Kootenay Food Co-op designated KCR as its recipient for the Community Donation Day inFebruary 2014, which raised $1164. THANKS !
So our total to date is $2764 out of our goal of $10,000. We hope you consider donating to the KCR Tower Move and Going Stereo Campaign. Please get in touch with Station Manager Jay Hannley at 250-352-9600 or email him at kcr at cjly dot net.
From October 19 to November 9, KCR will be in the community and on the air promoting membership in our wonderful Co-op. We would love to see you at some of these events, and hope that you renew your membership or become a member during the month.
