Dear Community & Friends of kHEN Radito,
As some of you know already, kHEN Radio is unable to broadcast due to a faulty transmitter in the basement. This piece of equipment sends a signal from the kHEN station to the antenna on "S" Mountain. A new transmitter should arrive on Tuesday, and until then there will be no radio broadcasts, however streaming via the website will be available (www.khen.org).
As almost everyone knows, kHEN is primarily a volunteer organization and survives on an extremely tiny budget. We have no reserve to pay for unexpected expenses. The new transmitter costs approximately $2,000 and we will need help from the community to pay the bill while continuing to meet our monthly expenses. We welcome any contributions that would help cover the cost of the transmitter, and keep kHEN on the air. Donations can be dropped off at the station, 123 E. 3rd St in Salida, or sent to: KHEN, PO Box 596, Salida 81201.
kHEN Radio provides a unique opportunity for Salida (and the surrounding area) to engage in a community dialog, as well as representing the interests and talents of the local residents. Next month we will celebrate our 13th year broadcasting live. As a radio station kHEN is still young and growing, and cannot survive without support from the community it serves.
Thanks & Best Wishes,
KHEN Community Radio
