The Kickstarter campaign wasn't even close to successful. I don't have thousands of friends and I didn't get anyone famous to post about it. This is a big setback... but I'm no stranger to winning in adverse conditions!

Excelsior!

The project was not successful. However, we're not going to turn around and run home with our tail between our legs. We're building the damn thing one way or another. We will start a second one to simply put the tower in the ground before icy November hardens it beyond digging. We'll get out there with men and pickaxes and jackhammers(lots of thick rock) if we need to. We have the tower and the people. Perhaps this was too much at once to finance. We'll finance it in three stages. First step: get the tower into the ground and put up a perimeter fence(around $400). Second step: Get/build the transmitter, EAS(required to buy), and start broadcasting(around $2000). Third step: Build a nice radio station room(around $2000).

Thank you for all of your support! Look for us in the VERY near future! I'm doing FAA and FCC stuff right now to extend our building window.
