Your Support is Vital to the Heartbeat of WDVX.

The Heartbeat of WDVX

 Thanks to you WDVX launched a new website in March, added fiber optic cable in April, and delivers the music you love twenty four hours a day.  

But the ticker needs a tune up. WDVX is a unique radio station in so many ways, including technically. Most modern stations use the Internet to send their signal to their transmitters. WDVX’s transmitter is located in a very remote area and the programming is a two-step process - Internet and microwave. And this is where your support will offset the cost of delivering to you the music you love and revitalize WDVX for years to come:  

 

  • Studio to Transmitter Link microwave unit (STL) and processor - $8,000 – this equipment sends the audio signal to the transmitter for broadcast to you. The current gear has been in service since 1997 when WDVX went on the air.

  • Audio converters for Knoxville Studio and Norris Studio - $4,100 – these converters give WDVX’s audio signal the lowest possible delay and the highest possible fidelity. They automatically respond to any changes in network conditions so the signal is reliable.  

  • Uninterruptible power supply - $2,300 – It keeps WDVX on the air in emergencies and power outages.

  • Tower space - $15,900 – WDVX rents space on three towers so there’s coverage throughout the valley and you can listen on 89.9, 102.9, or 93.9.

  • Web cast fees – $5,100 – WDVX sends the signal to a webhost, which sends it to you. WDVX pays that fee.
