Over The Horizon is a 4-color limited edition silkscreen print created for WGXC. The print is based on warning signs signaling dangerous levels of high-intensity radio waves. These signs were found on the perimeter of the U.S. Navy’s R.O.T.H.R. (Remote Over The Horizon Radar) installation on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Following the end of decades of bombing tests by the U.S. Navy, the R.O.T.H.R. site is the largest remaining military installation on the island, and monitors ship and air traffic along drug trafficking routes in the Caribbean.

WGXC is a community-run media project, re-envisioning radio as an innovative platform for local participation. Our inclusive programming connects diverse voices, and distributes information across the public spectrum in New York's Greene and Columbia counties. This multi-faceted project will be much more than just a radio station. With studios in Catskill, Cairo, and Hudson, WGXC activities will include special exhibitions and events, workshops and media training for youth and adults, a news blog with writing and photography, and a local calendar of events, meetings, and other resources.
WGXC volunteers are working hard to launch a 3,300-watt community radio station. More than 78,000 people throughout Greene and Columbia counties will be able to receive the signal on 90.7-FM. WGXC received its license from the FCC and a grant from the US Commerce Dept that will cover 50 percent of our equipment needs. We now need to raise matching funds in order to get on the air.
