Folks who listen to WOMR on 91.3 FM (WFMR) need to be aware that that signal will be shut down sometime on Saturday the 6th and will remain off throughout the week. While we knew this was going to happen we did not expect the extended outage. Listeners can still tune into 92.1 of course, they can still stream us online at WOMR.org and they can hear us on various apps on their mobile devices. TuneIn is one of the more popular and universal apps one can download.
The reason for the outage is because we are moving our antenna and transmitter that’s been living in Brewster for the past ten years and moving it to a new location in Orleans. The reason for the move is to save the station around $10k in rent annually.
I am saying the outage will last throughout the week but this is a big job and any number of unknown things can delay the project. However, we are very confident in the team that is doing this work for us.
Thanks for your patience everyone, let me know if you have any further questions.
