WSNC is back! 

We didn't really go anywhere, but we're back at full power for the first time since summer.  Listeners should notice an immediate improvement in coverage area.

Our new transmitter should last for several decades, but now we need to pay for it. Make a donation today. You can even become a sustaining member to keep WSNC coming your way for years to come.

At long last, WSNC has a new transmitter. 

We have been broadcasting at reduced power on a rented transmitter for months. Back during the summer, our old transmitter took an unannounced early retirement leaving us scrambling to stay on the air.

As soon as the new equipment can be properly installed, we will be available at higher quality over a larger listening area.

Professional broadcast equipment is not cheap, but it should last for decades.

Help us financially by becoming a sustaining member today.

Enjoy a performance by the United States Navy Band Jazz Commodores, Sunday, November 12, 8 p.m. at the UNC School of the Arts Stevens Center. The public is invited, but reservations are requested by calling the box office at 336-721-1945.
