Update:

Having reached my original goal of $1200 in just 17 days , I have choosen to reach a stretch goal of $1700 in total before the deadline at the start of May. If i reach this goal , all pledgers that pledge over $50 can have their Youtube , Facebook Page or Website shared on my facebook page with a kiwi following of over 126,000 fans! Im so excited that we have reached our $1200 Goal ! Cant wait to get back on air and get the music rolling . Thanks so much for all your help .

My Story:

My names Sarn , Im 15 and used to run a low power radio station in Taupo. It was nonstop music , 24/7 with no talking or ads. It was loved by many of my mates at school and many locals wanting to listen to a station that just played music and nothing else. My transmitter didnt meet the New Zealand specifications to be running. So at the start of February 2014 I received a visit from a radio inspector telling me that my transmitter didnt meet NZ Specifications. I want to bring my station back , but to do this i need to purchase a new transmitter that meets the NZ Specifications. Even the newspaper reporter was a fan and had contacted me asking why it suddenly came off air . She then put it in my local paper. The article is above. So ive come to Pledgeme to get pledged to my goal ! My goal of $1200 is a little under what i need because at the time i didnt know what i was looking at for a price range.

 I still have people asking me when is it coming back on air . It was a favourite for many as it was 24/7 , ad free and just played nonstop music without any garbage on it . Itll be awesome to get the $ to buy my new transmitter and be on air asap. Please get me to the amount I need !

Budget:

  • Transmitter - 800 - 1700
  • RDS Encoder - 500
  • $100 Pledgme fees
  • $300 Music Licensing fees

Thanks for your support!
