Tower Power

KCR needs members and listeners in Areas E and F to let their Regional Director know to support KCR's Tower Power project.  We have applied to the RDCK to move our transmitter to a higher elevation to increase our broadcast range.

Residents of Area E can attend the community meeting on April 23 at 1 pm at Blewett School and vote for KCR's Tower Power project

Residents of Area F can contact their Director - Tom Newell - and let him know they want to support KCR's Tower Power Project.

For more info call KCR Operations Manager - Terry Brennan - at 250-352-9600
