Sierra Madre's Community Radio station, 1630-AM, is on the air 24/7. The station broadcasts the latest information about community happenings (Art Fair, Wistaria Festival, Pancake Breakfast, Huck Finn Fishing Derby, and senior activies) as well as official information during emergencies. Even if your electricity is off, or your cable TV, internet, cell phone, or regular telephone fails, 1630-AM will be on the air.
Because the Sierra Madre Canyon area is at high risk from fire, flood, mudslides, etc., every effort has been made to ensure adequate reception within the area. (Note that in the event of a fire or other emergency, the radio station will operate in a special "Emergency Mode" which will improve coverage in all the areas and especially in the canyon.)
1630-AM is best received on a car radio. To have your community event announced on 1630-AM, or to be a volunteer announcer for the station, send an e-mail to email@example.com
