About Classical 94.7 WCNH-LP

Our Mission Statement

WCNH radio 94.7 FM is a nonprofit low-power FM radio station whose mission is to broadcast classical music to the people living and working within its coverage area of greater Concord New Hampshire, provide an opportunity for local classical music artists and composers to have their music presented over local radio broadcasts, and promote the appreciation and listening enjoyment of classical music.

What is WCNH?

WCNH is a low-power FM radio station operating at 94.7 with a power of 45 watts. That will give Classical 94.7 a solid coverage of 4 miles, and a less reliable coverage range up to 7 miles.

Recently we were awarded a new license for 91.5 FM that will replace the 94.7 channel.  This new frequency will increase our coverage are and allow us to add repeater channels around the state when the opportunity arises.  Construction of the 91.5 channel should begin mid-2009.

What does WCNH program?

Classical music, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All programmed with help from the Beethoven Satellite Network. The weekends will feature symphonies, chamber music, opera, and solo performances from the WFMT Radio Network.

What kind of expenses does WCNH incur?

There are costs for our transmission equipment, and the computer that will store and play our audio. Of course there is rent for the tower and transmitter space. WCNH will have a small staff of full and part-time employees. Other expenses include insurance, music licensing fees, new equipment acquisition, maintenance, office and fundraising expenses, internet access, and so on.
