JOHN BROWN UNIVERSITY Christian KLRC/SILOAM SPRINGS, AR has launched a new 100kw signal that will substantially expand the coverage area of the station into MISSOURI and OKLAHOMA, while improving the signal in NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. Previously KLRC's main signal was 6kw located at 101.1 FM.
"We've been dreaming and praying about increasing our power at KLRC for more than a decade," said GM SEAN SAWATSKY. "I'm not sure any of us imagined just how big God would answer that prayer. He's used our 6,000-watt signal to impact so many lives. We can only imagine the impact that will be possible through our new signal at 90.9FM. Not only will coverage be improved for many in NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, but tens of thousands of people in NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA can also now listen for the first time."
From it's humble beginning as a 100-watt campus-only radio station in 1983, KLRC will continue to broadcast on 101.1FM for several months to allow listeners time to adjust to listening on the new frequency. Members of the KLRC staff recently "flipped the switch" to 90.9 FM at the TENTH AVENUE NORTH Concert in FAYETTEVILLE. The sold-out show was part of an evening of celebration for the launch of the new radio signal.
