After using our former national news service for 25 years, Christian Family Radio has  transitioned to SRN News.  This new service provides us with more flexibility to vary our newscasts between in-depth and summaries, and also to “nudge” the schedule just a bit to accommodate changes in lengths of other programming.

We worked hard with our former news service to address ongoing problems with their sound, where it would “break up” with odd noises.  This was caused at their end, and there was nothing we could do about it.  In addition, some newscasts were completely “blank” with nothing being aired during these segments.  This forced us to look elsewhere and we were pleased that SRN News offered not only a replacement, but additional features that will enable us to “fine tune” for a good balance of public affairs, teaching, preaching and music programming that we strive to achieve here at Christian Family Radio.

Our national newscast continues to air at the top of the hour, but can vary slightly based on the lengths of programs leading up to the news, giving us much smoother “transitions”.  We’ve set up a basic schedule that rotates news content in 3 hour segments, subject to special programming:

  • On the “3s”, that is, 3am, 6am, 9am and so on, a full newscast is broadcast featuring the latest news, an in depth segment of interest to Christians, and another general in-depth segment
  • The next hour, we shorten the newscast to include the latest news and the in-depth Christian interest segment
  • The 3rd hour, we just air the latest news

Also, on scheduled times where we only have a minute available, we’ll be airing “Headline Updates” to keep you informed.

We are pleased with this improvement to our programming and appreciate your prayers and comments!

We have completed another major milestone in our work to upgrade KOLU to 39,000 watts of power.  Thanks to a great deal of help from Craig-Co electrical contracting, we now have the 400A service that is necessary to run the high-powered transmitter to be used for this power level.

The work involved the installation of many items:

  • A new, larger transformer on the utility pole serving the transmitter site
  • Larger wire in the conduit feeding the building
  • Installation of a “CT Can”, which is necessary since this high power cannot be run directly through the utility’s power meter
  • Installation of a 400A panel, which will feed the transmitter, high powered air conditioner, and the old panel
  • Installation of a “disconnect”, which enables quickly connecting and disconnecting power to the transmitter

Before this work was done, the floor was refinished with a new durable, washable white coating that will reduce dust (which can cause short circuits in the kind of high powered transmitter we will be using), and the present transmitter rack was moved and consolidated with another equipment rack to make room for the new equipment.

Here are some pictures of the electrical installation and one of our floor and rack move:
