Station Status

I’m really glad that our Porch Talk show has been so popular.  Sometimes the simple ideas are the best ones.  For those who don’t already know, Porch Talk is a casual conversation where we get to know one of our neighbors here in Colonial Beach a bit better.  Our town is full of interesting people […]

Happy New Year everyone!  WWER is off to a good start for 2020.  Our Membership Program is up and running with people joining to show their support, and we are now streaming!  There is a lot of work that went into getting the stream service up and working, and more work as we have to […]

It’s our first season for WWER and we have a few nice things planned.  But before I mention them, I wanted to let you know that we’ve been doing work to make our signal more reliable.  Our studio to transmitter link is now more reliable than it was, and we have a backup system in […]

I’m happy to report that we had Verizon come to take a look at things, and our intermittent problem reared its ugly head while the technician was there, making it much easier to track the cause!  He made some repairs to our service, and things have been much more reliable since then.  Here’s hoping they […]

If you are a regular listener, you already know that lately we have been plagued by service interruptions.  Quite simply, we are at the mercy of Verizon who provide our internet service.  Trust me when I tell you that we are vexed by this issue and are working on solutions.  Our tower location does not […]

We love hearing from our listeners and finding out what you like or don’t like on WWER.  To help us improve, we’re asking you to fill out our new survey.  It should only take a few minutes and will help guide on on future programming decisions.  Thanks!

I’m happy to say we are continuing to get good local publicity about WWER.  This week, we are featured in the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.  It’s a very nice article and hopefully it will make more people aware that we exist!  We’ve certainly gotten some good word of mouth publicity, and if you like us, I […]

For those of you who have been listening from the beginning, you may recall we got knocked off the air 3 days after we started!  3 days after that, we were back on the air with a loaner transmitter as we sent ours out to be repaired.  But I would not blame you for forgetting […]

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. What’s a little less awesome are the occasional drop outs we’re having.  We […]
