WFCR exposes more than news in its new studio 

Old brick walls and century-old post-and-beam construction are not the first things that come to mind for a state-of-the-art radio studio, but for public radio station WFCR's newsroom, it was all about the character.

WOON explores the science of getting small 

Moving WOON-AM from storefront to little house took less than three months.

Stardraw.com Releases Stardraw Control 2010

WILQ rebuilds transmitter site

Cumulus Cincinnati reinvents by rebuilding and reusing 

In our current economy, planning and executing a major project is becoming increasingly difficult. We must find new and clever ways to build and improve our facilities.

WCFB rebuilds after a tornado 

A borderline F3/F4 tornado had cut a path across WCFB's transmitter property, directly hitting the building and 1,500' tower, bringing it to the ground. The building and everything in it was a total loss and it was going to be a long recovery process.

The green designation features construction from recycled steel, motion-sensitive office lighting, UV-filtering glass and motorized sunshades, water-conserving features, solar panels generating 100kW of power and a "green roof."

Choosing a small wind turbine for your station 

If you look closely at most power consumers you will find the majority use power with less-than-ideal efficiency; that is likely because over the last 100 years or more electric power has been easy to come by and, for the most part, cheap. There has been little if any economic incentive to maximize the efficiency of electrical usage.

Locked Up 

Padlocks and gates no longer deter a thief. Either thieves are getting bolder (maybe desperate) or we have not yet done our job, or both.
