Our Golden Opportunity goal is to incur as little debt as possible to complete construction and launch, while attempting to get on the air as soon as possible. To accomplish this, we will need the help from everyone who wishes their family and our community to benefit from a stronger Christian witness on the radio.

For this once-in-a-generation Golden Opportunity, we are asking everyone in the WCTL listening family to consider a special gift. Here’s the challenge set before us, as we begin Phase 2 of our project.


Phase 1: Legal and Engineering – preparing applications and engineering exhibits, application and approval from FCC: $27,000 (completed July 1st)

Phase 2: AM Station – acquisition, relocation, and construction of AM station to Union City: $102,200 (in progress)

Phase 3: 106.3 FM upgrade – relocation and construction of the new WCTL Radio: $69,250

Phase 4: Translators and enhancements – reconfiguration of existing FM translators and acquisition of HD Radio technology: $41,800
