All of you following us on Catholic Community Radio know that many of our growth projects are in the final stages of completion. As of this writing, our two brand new towers for WQNO 690 AM are completed, connected and being tested.
This comes after a long period of technical delays, waiting for intricate custom parts, environmental issues, weather, alligators and water moccasins. This means that those of you listening to 690 AM in the New Orleans area will be getting a much stronger signal. Those of you listening on the Northshore and into Southern Mississippi and those of you in the diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, as well as those of you in the Biloxi Mississippi diocese, take note! If your signal is a bit weak and “scratchy”, it’s about to get a lot stronger and more solid. We will also be broadcasting into areas that have not had the joy of listening to Catholic radio.
A new low power FM is in the works for Baton Rouge! The planning and zoning commission has just granted us permission to build our tower and we will be beginning work on 105.9 FM. This new low power FM will fill in the signal gaps that we have in the southeastern portions of East Baton Rouge Parish.
These and our ever improving online audio and video streaming projects are a result of much prayer and planning. More importantly, they are fruits of your prayer and support. Thank you for your patience and for your belief in our mission to bring Christ and his Church to those in need of His truth.
May Our Lady wrap you in her mantle.
