The current Porch Talk edition which began airing on Saturday June 20th, is a conversation between Ted Tait and Peter Farney.  If you’ve missed it on air, you can listen to it here:

As you may know, the historic sailing vessel Edna Lockwood visited Colonial Beach during the Potomac River Festival.  When she departed, they sailed up the Potomac for two stops in Washington, D.C.  On their return trip toward the Chesapeake Bay, they decided to stop in Colonial Beach for the night.  That’s when I caught up […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
