Urgent Prayer Request for WRAF

I just got word from our station manager Bryan Race regarding a need the station has now. Below is an email from our station engineer Marty Lee:


As you know, Bob Kinder was able to climb the WRAF tower today to troubleshoot the problem that we have been experiencing. Bob located damage to our WRAF antenna. We contacted the antenna manufacturer and will be receiving a quote on replacement parts. There is a possibility that, due to the age of the antenna, a new antenna would be a better solution.

Due to the damage that Bob found, it was necessary for us to reduce WRAF’s power to 20 percent. We will need to maintain the 20 percent power output until the antenna situation has been resolved. We certainly do not want to cause any additional damage that could cause us to go off-the-air completely.

At this point, we do not know how long we will be on the reduced power level. That depends on whether we are able to repair the current antenna, or if we purchase a new one.

I’ll keep you up to date as information develops.


Please keep the station management team in your prayers and we hope to be back to full-power shortly. Remember you can always listen on-line at Toccoa Falls Radio's website.
