Hood River Cultural Trust announced on Oct. 29 that it is awarding Radio Tierra a $1,477 grant to purchase digital equipment field recording and remote broadcast equipment.

“This equipment upgrade will allow the station and its volunteer programmers to record regionally significant cultural events, broadcast them remotely, or archive them for future use,” said Radio Tierra Station Manager Patricia Baum. “This equipment upgrade and subsequent training program will teach programmers how to record, archive and distribute programming of cultural and historical significant to the community.”
