On Friday, November 3rd, WUVT Engineering installed and switched to broadcasting via our new Nautel GV5 transmitter to replace our aging transmitter. This new transmitter will allow WUVT to continue broadcasting to the New River Valley at full power for at least 25 years, as well as having improved signal quality and reliability.
Specifically, WUVT wants to thank Josh Arritt, Jon Light, Eric Landgraf, and Jason Purdue for installation, Steve Floyd for investigating, recommending and negotiating a significant discount on behalf of WUVT, and Linda DeVito for coordinating the receipt of the necessary funds. The amount of work all of these individuals have contributed is enormous.
Lastly, WUVT wants to thank our donors and alumni network again for making this happen smoothly in conjunction with our 75th-Anniversary reunion last semester. Thank you for keeping WUVT on the airwaves and College Radio alive.
