Coverage and Technical Details

WHYF, AM 720 is what is known as a DAYTIME radio station. The Federal Communications Commission regulations are that we must shut down our transmitter at around one hour after sunset each day, and/or operate at reduced power until sunrise and at some other hours in the evening.

This, coupled with the use of a temporary antenna site causes our signal to cover about 70% of what it SHOULD reach, according to the above coverage map. This means some listeners may have difficulity receiving the station. We are working on the antenna situation, but need your financial support to do so! Remember, you can hear the station crystal clear on your computer speakers...just click the Listen Live button on this site or download an app for your mobile phone.

Holy Family Radio, Inc. is a lay apostolate of Catholics in communion with the Holy Father and the Magisterium, placing ourselves in the hands of the Holy Family - Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Through the inspiration of Saint Maximilian Kolbe and all the saints and martyrs, we will use our gifts and talents to actively work through these radio broadcasts to make known the Good News of Jesus Christ, for the honor and glory of God and the salvation of souls. Embracing the call of Vatican II for lay evangelization through the power of the media, we at Holy Family Radio, Inc., intend to utilize radio broadcasts to provide, through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Truth of the Holy Catholic Church for the nourishment of our Catholic Family and to share our Faith with others.

"Is it possible that our enemies must be so active as to have the upper hand, while we remain passive, limiting ourselves to some prayer? Do we not perhaps have more powerful arms, the protection of heaven and of the Immaculate Virgin... the conqueror and destroyer of heresies who will never yield to the enemy who raises his head." - St. Maximillian Kolbe

"...but the Word of God remains forever." 1 Peter 1:25
