CHMA Needs Your Help

ONLY HOURS LEFT to help us reach our goal on our indiegogo campaign. To go to the campaign page and donate click this link. http://igg.me/at/chmafm

CHMA 106.9FM, Sackville’s campus/community radio station is running a fundraising
campaign to gain additional funding to replace much of it’s old and overused equipment. “Our goal is to raise $11, 000 with the help of the community,” says Phil Mercier, Mount Allison student and CHMA’s Communications Director. “We broadcast 365 days a year and that kind of use certainly puts a lot of wear on our gear.”

Rather than just asking the community to generously open their pockets and donate, CHMA is offering perks as an incentive for folks to show their support. Perks range from one to one thousand dollars and include neck warmers, t-shirts, VIP party passes, taxidermy pheasants and even having one of the two stations studios named after you.

The station strives towards embracing the brave new digital world through apps and an online presence. This helps their signal and voice to reach beyond the marshes to a wider world. “Currently our broadcasting range is around 15 square kilometers,” says Mercier. “We also have a 24 hour online stream, but we really want to focus on keeping people connected at all times, anywhere they go.”

CHMA 106.9 FM is owned and operated by the members of Attic Broadcasting Co. Ltd., a non-profit organization with its offices on the campus of Mount Allison University. It provides members with an opportunity to create innovative, educational and alternative community-based programming.

On November 3, 2011, the 36th General Conference of UNESCO approved the creation of the World Day of Radio, to be celebrated on February 13th of each year.

This year, there’s a special focus on the role of women in radio. Check out this great infographic about women’s role in radio around the world. (Also, this is the 10th anniversary of the NCRA’s report and toolkit on women in campus and community radio in Canada: Women’s Hands and Voices!)

UNESCO states: “World Radio Day seeks to raise awareness about the importance of radio, facilitate access to information through radio and enhance networking among broadcasters.

Radio has to be recognized as a low cost medium, specifically suited to reach remote communities and vulnerable people: the illiterate, the disabled, women, youth and the poor, while offering a platform to intervene in the public debate, irrespective of people’s educational level. Furthermore, radio has a strong and specific role in emergency communication and disaster relief.

There is also a changing face to radio services which, in the present times of media convergence, are taking up new technological forms, such as broadband, mobiles and tablets.However, it is said that up to a billion people still do not have access to radio today.”

The world of radio is changing, and much of our equipment—stuff that’s been through decades of use and overuse—is simply wearing out. For the first time, CHMA is running a deficit, and without additional funds, we won’t be able to continue in the same way.
 
We want to be able to offer the same great programming experiences and open door that we’ve always had. In fact, we want to do more, to increase and strengthen our award-winning current affairs and news programming in the year ahead. We also want to embrace the brave new digital world, through apps and an online presence that will allow our signal, our voice, to reach beyond the marshes to a wider world.
 
But this isn’t possible without raising some money. And that’s where you come in. We’re asking friends, fans, and alumni of CHMA to dig deep and chip in to help us replace old analog equipment while simultaneously moving into a digital world. This will assure that our current programmers and the next generations of Allisonians and Sackvillians can continue to enjoy the magic of community radio.
 
Or goal is daunting but attainable: $11 000. We chose the number to honor the 11thedition of Stereophonic, our annual music festival. We’ve got some great incentives to get us there. Please tune in, share, and above all—give. Help keep The Voice of the Marshes loud and clear.
