Who Doesn't Love a Parade?
Thanks to all the volunteers who imagined, built and walked with the WEFT entry in this year's July 4th parade.
If you missed the WEFT float, check out our Facebook page for photos. WEFT Rocked It!
And our engineering team has been working hard to keep our signal strong. On Saturday July 1, our volunteers replaced two power supplies in our transmitter and we're back to 100% power. Our engineers are continuing to work to improve the signal quality. If you experience any issues with the quality, please click on the Listen Live! button for our live stream.
