Our Signal

Broadcasting with the Power of a Toaster!


WVOE broadcasts at 97.7 FM as an unlicensed station, so the signal is limited to about 1 Watt (not much).  Our antenna is located on the roof of the Mel Johnson Media Center on the campus of Northwestern College.  This gives the general coverage shown below, depending on the weather.  Because the signal is so weak, we say we are "broadcasting with the power of a toaster!", although in actuality a toaster has much more power (around 800 Watts).  To compensate for the weak signal, WVOE also streams over the internet from the WVOE website, so in effect, we broadcast all around the world, but only halfway across campus!
