Support KCIW’s Full Power Project

KCIW has a 1,000 WATT dream, but it will take “WATTS and WATTS” of money to make it happen. We need to raise $125,000 and time is running out. Here’s why . . .

KCIW’s Full Power Project

KCIW has a 1,000 WATT dream, but it will take “WATTS and WATTS” of money to make it happen. We need to raise $125,000 and time is running out.

Here’s why.

KCIW has approval from the FCC for two full power transmitters — one in Brookings (KCIW) and one in Gold Beach (KCIY). That means we will be able to reach nearly all of Curry County … from the California Border to Port Orford … plus northern Del Norte County. Right now, we broadcast as a low power radio station with limited reach in Curry and Del Norte counties.

Our full power FCC “construction permits” expires at the end of 2024. This means our full-power transmitters must be on the air before the construction permits expire. If we miss the deadline, it may be 10 years or more before the FCC provides another opportunity to apply for a full power license. So time is running out.

When KCIW goes full power, nearly all the residents of Curry County and much of Del Norte County will hear and enjoy KCIW’s diverse, unique, and local programming. And we can add even more! You already listen to your favorite music on KCIW. Whether it’s blues, jazz, oldies, classics, bluegrass, or world music, KCIW has it.

But wait, there’s more!

You’ll also hear from the community, from the decision makers to the unsung heroes of Curry and Del Norte Counties. KCIW airs interviews and stories from the folks who live, work, and play here.

And when KCIW’s signal reaches from Crescent City to Port Orford, it gets even better, because we can help in case of emergency.

KCIW will get you the important news and information you need to keep yourself and your loved ones safe in case of disaster. We know that your car radio might be the only source of news in an emergency, like the Chetco Bar or Smith River Complex fires. That’s why KCIW is committed to getting you essential information quickly and accurately. We’re very proud to be the only local radio station honored with a regional Edward R. Murrow Award for reporting excellence.

So help us to go to full power. We know it’s going to take “WATTS and WATTS” of money, but we know how essential it is to have a trusted source of local entertainment, news and information, especially when there’s an emergency.
