Welcome to Colonial Beach Community Radio

Colonial Beach Community Radio includes the Colonial Beach Community Foundation (CBCF) on its list of sponsors.  But make no mistake, the Colonial Beach Community Foundation is much more than a “sponsor” of WWER.  For 2019, the foundation is the entity holding the FCC license for the station.  More importantly, CBCF has provided a substantial contribution […]

Was it just me, or did Riverfest seem bigger and better than ever this year?  The carnival was shiny and new, with cool lighting on the rides.  The weather was just about perfect on Saturday, with lots of people enjoying the beach, the boardwalk and tours of the Edna Lockwood.  The fireworks were spectacular as […]

Thanks to everyone for the continued support.  Our June 1 launch weekend was a lot of fun and we heard a lot of wonderful feedback about the music and programs!  After a bit of a bump in the road technically, we are back on air, working on making our signal more reliable. We are also […]

At about 8:00am this morning (Thu June 6th), WWER returned to the air with our replacement transmitter.  It appears that our signal is significantly stronger than it was over the weekend — with a reach of nearly 10 miles!  So that’s awesome. What’s a little less awesome are the occasional drop outs we’re having.  We […]

Transmitter Troubles Being Addressed To Our WWER Listeners: On Monday morning, the WWER staff decided to take forthright corrective action to ensure the weak / disappearing FM signal problem gets resolved once and for all.  To do that, we made the tough choice to go off the air on only our third day of operation.  […]

While we had a great launch and lots of people have congratulated us on a job well done, the one thorn in our side is that we have had a bit of down time in our first day on the air.  Our transmitter seems to be having some problems and cuts off now and then […]

Welcome to YOUR radio station.  Tune to 88.1 FM and enjoy! At midnight Friday night, WWER went on the air – live!  Ted, Charlie, Dave L, and Tom said a few words to mark the occassion.  We clinked our champagne glasses and engaged our automation system to carry us through our first week.  You can […]

This afternoon, our station manager Ted Tait and several of his minions performed the first end-to-end test of Colonial Beach Community Radio.  The computer in our Chamber of Commerce studio, sent a demo play list audio stream to the tower and out over the airwaves.  When that happened, three middle-aged men were jumping and high-fiving […]

Today Ted Tait, Bill Butler and I (Tom Larson) met with the Dashan Turner (Superintendent of CB Schools) and Tricia Williams (CB High School Principal).  We provided a station overview and outlined our vision for involving Colonial Beach students in WWER’s future while learning valuable skills in the process.  Both Mr. Turner and Ms. Williams […]

Today we moved the radio studio gear.  A small band of volunteers loaded the equipment and furniture generously donated by the Frederickburg Christian School into the back of a pickup truck generously loaned to us for the task, and drove it to our new home at the Chamber of Commerce where they are donating space […]
