Day Three consisted of moving the remaining equipment from the old site to the new site and getting everything properly installed. The rock of Daytona is still streaming online through one of our mobile apps and I throw website at www.therockofdaytona.com, plus we hope to have the broadcast on AM and FM up and running very soon.
We have to give a special shout-out and thanks to Dennis tower climber. We were hoping to be able to remove the equipment off the old Tower in about 1 to 2 hours. The project end up taking closer to 5 hours with three and a half hours with Dennis at the very top of a 300-foot tower. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Great job by the entire crew or making quick progress and will be back to normal operations soon.
time to remove the antennas from the old Tower. So that means we are off the air on AM and FM. But we are on the livestream through the website or one of our mobile apps. We plan on keeping the radio station online until everything is moved and in place and we can resume on AM and FM. More updates to come. Thanks for hanging in there with us.
Saturday April 15th we got started preparing the new tower site for the move. The station experienced a period of time off the air from approximately 11:47AM-3:42PM. Although this was related to the move, it was more of a technical glitch as Spectrum discontinued our service prior to all the equipment being in place at the new location.
The problem was resolved and we resumed broadcasting.
The plan for Sunday April 16th is to remove all equipment from the current tower site and relocate it to the new site. The Internet service will be checked and all electrical services will be activated with all necessary equipment being installed.
We will be OFF THE AIR on Sunday starting at approximately 8:30AM. We do expect to have full service on the Internet stream at www.therockofdaytona.com and through our mobile apps for Android and Apple as well as TuneIn Radio.
We will continue to keep you posted with the progress through this web site as well as the Rock of Daytona facebook page.
