KSQM is partnering with Habitat for Humanity for a Donation Drive Saturday April 25th at Serenity Square in Sequim. Habitat for Humanity will have a truck in front of the KSQM station at 577 W. Washington Street, Sequim 10am to 2pm ready to accept new or used building materials, appliances and home furnishings for resale at the Habitat for Humanity Store in Port Angeles. You can also call 360.417.7543 to pickup large furniture items from your home. Please mention KSQM when you call so the station gets a portion of the proceeds.
The first sections of the KSQM tower were put into place on Tuesday, October 1. The remainder of the tower is scheduled to be lifted into place Monday, October 7. Here’s an updated video chronicling the project, which includes today’s video of the tower pieces coming together.
The KSQM “John Wayne Memorial Transmission Facility” was dedicated on Friday November 8 at the broadcast tower and transmission complex in the foothills of Blue Mountain between Sequim and Port Angeles.
A new KSQM transmission tower was erected on Monday, October 7th in the Blue Mountain foothills between Sequim and Port Angeles, Washington. Transmissions from the new tower will begin with a new, much more powerful signal on or about October 24, 2013 and will become the most powerful FM radio signal on the North Olympic Peninsula. KSQM is a non-profit listener supported community radio station serving residents in the Sequim/Dungeness Valley and Port Angeles areas of the North Olympic Peninsula since 2008. The $325,000 project was funded by a combination of listener donations, charitable grants and First Federal Bank. Listeners may continue to support the new voice of news, community information and music by clicking on the donation button at the KSQM website.
Readers Theater Plus presented a check for $11,311.00 to KSQM radio in Sequim on Tuesday, October 29th. The contribution from RT+ represents all of the proceeds collected during last month’s presentation of “A Century of Sequim” Readers Theater Plus performances and auction. KSQM deeply appreciates the partnership with Readers Theater. The funds are earmarked for the KSQM transmission tower project.
