WE ARE ON THE AIR! I can’t say that everything started off without a March Madness glitch. That’s the “way it goes” in the world of media broadcasting.
• March 1st, Monday night at 9:00, I was in my backyard with my hand-held short wave radio checking for the new signal that would go right into Cuba, and reach as far as Argentina. My first efforts to locate the signal sounded like I was receiving messages from outer space aliens. When I finally was able to tune in, someone else’s English broadcast program was running because the station was having technical difficulty.
Ok, we had a false start.
• March 8th success! At 9:00 PM EST we were “on the air” in SPANISH. The programming also began streaming on the WWRB.org web site.
• March 15th… I tuned in with confidence only to hear the English broadcast again. March Madness! After a bit of station consultaion, at the top of the hour at 10:00 PM, the Spanish program was on the air.
• On March 22nd, I called the station before 9:00 PM just to check on the program, and got a surprise! Our broadcast was not only on the air; we had been on since 8:00 PM. A gift of an extra hour.
I know that we don’t live in a perfect world, but God continues to work things out for His good purpose.
Getting on the air in Cuba has never been easy, but now it is on the air again. Remember you can listen our broadcast at WWRB.org , Monday 9:00 PM EST.
