Planting the Pledge Drive Trees

Angie Carl

Last week WHQR's Development Director Mary Bradley met up with Angie Carl from the Nature Conservancy, Tony Doster from the American Society of Foresters and Resource Management Services and Victoria Lockhart from Resource Management Services to plant the forest that YOU helped create. During our 2014 Fall Pledge Drive, The American Society of Foresters generously donated one longleaf tree sapling for every pledge made. Coming to a total of 1000 new longleaf trees, together we will effectually restore 5 acres of longleaf pine forests.

Power reduction on 91.3, outage on 96.7

Tuesday 1/13, 11:15 am: A power outage at our 91.3 transmitter site in Brunswick county has caused 91.3 to operate at reduced power. As a result, HD2 Classical HQR and 96.7 are also off the air. We don't know at this time when power will be restored. Our live streams for HQR News and Classical HQR should continue to be operational.

This outage is not related to a different problem which took 96.7 off the air for several hours yesterday. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Update on Technical Issues on ClassicalHQR 96.7

96.7 is back. Classical HQR returned to the air Monday evening, thanks to the hard work of Engineer Jobie Sprinkle and Operations Manager George Scheibner. Well done!

Earlier:  ATTENTION: Currently Classical HQR 96.7 is silent.  The tower has possibly been hit by lightning. We expect to be back on the air this evening. In the meantime, you can still access 96.7 fm by listening online or on 91.3/HD2. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

What happened to Tuesday's Jazz?

An outage in one of our satellite receivers resulted in a loss of WHQR's 9 pm - midnight jazz on Tuesday December 23rd. The station was still on the air, but silent for several minutes while we attempted to bring the jazz back.

As of Wednesday morning the 24th, we still don't know the cause of the problem but suspect it was from the syndicated source we use. We decided to start the BBC early.

Naturally, this problem occurred during holiday times. Of course. Special thanks to George Scheibner for returning to the station, investigating the problem and putting the BBC on.
