Pulse 99.5 or Pulse 101.7?
Four years ago we prepared for the FCC’s approval of a process to move us to 101.7FM. It took a while, but the FCC made its ruling last fall and we’re preparing to switch frequencies, along with two other stations, to better serve the central Iowa community. Thanks to everyone who has prayed for God’s will on this!
When will this happen?
Our target date is March 31st, 2015. Please pray that all goes smoothly. There’s a lot that goes into changing a radio frequency!
How will this affect the signal?
Our engineers and many radio friends agree that new equipment specifically tuned to this signal will improve our overall sound. So while we will still be broadcasting at 6,000 watts, we are confident that our sound in the central Iowa area will be stronger than before.
Will I still be able to hear Pulse in Ames?
The 95.5 frequency in Ames is operated by another organization. They plan to continue rebroadcasting our signal. You will still be able to hear Pulse in Ames at 95.5FM after we move up the dial to 101.7 on March 31st, 2015.
How can I help?
Perhaps the thing we’re most excited about is the opportunity to leverage the ‘buzz’ about the frequency switch to introduce more people to Pulse music. There are far too few positive media options for kids, young adults and young families in our community. Help us spread the word by sharing with your church or community group, on social media, and anywhere else you can think of!
