WHQR/NCCF reef building a success

Saturday November 19th was a beautiful day on Stump Sound in Onslow County. Over 100 volunteers from WHQR, UNCW students, GE Volunteers and others gathered under the auspices of the North Carolina Coastal Federation to build an oyster reef. A long line snaked from the mainland to the sound, ferrying hundreds of bags of marl (marine limestone) as the base, and later bags of oyster shells to make up the reef itself.

Nov. 21 - WHQR at low power again

Once again, workers will be climbing the tower housing our signal today to make changes to TV equipment there. While they are on the tower, we will be reducing power to protect them. Some listeners may experience signal problems, and our HD signal will not be operational. Thank you again for your patience.

Update Wednesday afternoon, November 2nd:

We were able to restore all functionality early this afternoon. Thanks to Operations Manager George Scheibner and a very special SA-lute to Jobie Sprinkle, Chief Engineer of WFAE in Charlotte, who took the day off to drive down here and make needed repairs. Both our FM and HD signals should be back on track now.

Formula 1

Looking toward next week's Cinematique showing of Senna at Thalian Hall, I'm taken back to the craziness of my teenage fascination with driving fast in fast machines. But unlike other Southern  boys I was enthralled by sports cars and European Formula One racing rather than dragsters and stock cars. My heroes were Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Emerson Fittipaldi, and Jackie Stewart. My first car was a 1957 Triumph TR-3 that I found under a tarp in a neighbor's garage.  Over the years, my admiration for the athleticism, intuition and intelligence of the great drivers has never waned.
