Maine Station's Tower Falls In Windstorm
December 11, 2014 at 4:18 AM (PT)
The tower of LIGHT OF LIFE MINISTRIES noncommercial Southern Gospel WMDR-F (GOD'S COUNTRY 88.9 FM)/OAKLAND, ME collapsed early WEDNESDAY in a windstorm, reports SCOTT FYBUSH's NORTHEAST RADIO WATCH.
Engineer JOEL EPPLEY told FYBUSH that the antenna was in service for less than a year and that the station does not have an auxiliary site. The station feeds other stations with programming (including full power WWLN/LINCOLN, ME and translator W264BQ/BANGOR), and without the broadcast signal, an Internet feed is keeping those stations on the air while WMDR seeks a replacement tower.
