Pond Station: #Livestream the Weather from Acra, NY
It’s in the 40s (F) and raining right now throughout much of NY state, but it’s meant to break later this afternoon and be sunny before sunset. So it’s a good time to tune into Pond Station’s livestream and hear the changing weather surrounding a freshwater pond in NY state.
Pond Station floats on the water’s surface, broadcasting underwater sounds through a live radio link. It operates from dawn to evening every day, using solar-charged internal batteries. Pond Station’s receiver is located in the Wave Farm radio studio where resident artists and broadcasters on WGXC FM can experience the pond’s natural sounds or remix and interpret them. International audiences are invited to do the same via the live web stream below.
