WGXC is packing up its gear at the Catskill Community Center this month, and moving its third studio into the Catskill Library. Our goal is to move the necessary broadcast equipment into the Catskill Library, but also into an easy-to-move satellite station that can be used both there and for remote broadcasts from throughout Greene and Columbia counties. Tune in for this special weekend-long mini-pledge drive to raise money for a few items to round out the WGXC remote broadcasting kit. Call in throughout the weekend at 518-697-7400 to donate a small amount and help WGXC be able to broadcast from almost anywhere in Greene and Columbia counties with a new remote satellite unit. There will be broadcasts from Acra, Catskill, and Hudson during this mini-pledge drive, with Tony Fallon hosting both "The Irish Show" on Sunday and the "Guest DJ Show" on Friday from Acra. Please help make WGXC more mobile, and raise a small amount to create this satellite studio. We believe we can create a mobile studio for about $1,400.

Here's what we need:
Glide Style Combo Rack Case with Wheels $429.99
Turntable case $255.99
UPS Power Supply $65
Behringer Headphone Amp $70
• Behringer Ultrapatch Pro PX3000. $80
• Three rack mount shelves. $120
• Hand truck. $120.
• Various cables, straps, adaptors $340

Most of the equipment needed for broadcast already exists in the WGXC Catskill studio. So we don't need to raise too much money for this effort. We just want to be able to put the equipment we have in a secure framework that is easy to use, and can be wheeled to any site nearby for broadcast. We are also looking for a few donations:
• Four folding chairs, perfect condition only. These chairs will be strapped to the wheeled rack-mount unit seen above.
