Salem Radio Network and Salem Music Network
will be upgrading our Christian programming platform
from satellite to IP (internet) and will be upgrading our receiver fleet
in mid-2019 to the XDS platform.
Your current Wegener satellite receiver will be replaced and upgraded to an XDS Pro receiver that will be fed completely from the internet (IP). Salem will continue broadcasting on the current Wegener satellite platform while migrating to our new XDS IP receivers and expect to end our SES-2 Wegener satellite feed in early 2020.
***This change will affect current Salem Wegener affiliates (Christian on SES-2) and NOT current Westwood One XDS (General Market on SES-11) receivers.***
This improved system operates over internet protocol (no satellite) and requires only an internet connection to schedule and receive programming. Your station will no longer need a satellite dish or antenna hardware to receive Salem’s Christian network feeds. Our new XDS receivers give you the ability to record and playback all programming. They fully integrate and provide control of local automation systems. Full control of programming is maintained by your station thanks to web-based scheduling. And maybe best of all, terrestrial or weather interference (sun outage/rain fade) is eliminated.
Salem will replace your current Wegener receivers with new XDS Pro receivers beginning mid-2019 with a hard-switch planned for fall 2019. We will continue to simulcast on our current Wegener satellite platform until early 2020.
Salem’s receiver-swap program will begin mid-2019.
Current affiliates MUST submit an XDS receiver request on our web form at http://www.srnonline.com/xds-upgrade.

Hosts Rob Campbell and Amanda Suffecool are brother and sister, and their sibling rivalry is part of their signature style. They are the children of nomadic gun geeks. They were forced at an early age to wander across the midwest from gun-show to shooting competition. They translate questions about firearms training, self-defense, firearms, legislation and politics into understandable language designed for a general audience.
A call or topic doesn’t go by without a poke at each other or a friend of the show. Bob and Amanda translate gun-geek into understandable English designed for a general audience. Call in with your question about how to start your self-defense education, about the obscure firearm you found, or bring that strange question you always wanted to ask.

An exceptional voice of experience—for an unprecedented need.
For more than thirty years, Peter Rosenberger has personally traveled the path of the family caregiver. Through this journey, Peter’s discovered a caregiver cannot only survive, but thrive in oftentimes grim circumstances.
In an unparalleled journey with his wife Gracie, Peter has navigated a medical nightmare that has mushroomed to 80 major operations—including the amputation of both of Gracie’s legs below the knee. These difficult experiences led Peter to work with more than 80 treating physicians in 12 hospitals, and 7 medical insurance companies, and medical bills soaring to more than $10 million. All these circumstances resulted in Peter developing a firm grasp of the healthcare issues faced by families with disabilities.
Not only will Peter and his team help you sell time on the show, but he is willing to spotlight affiliates and their sponsors for specific caregiver stories and services/products. Current sponsors include:
Examples of target sponsors providing services for caregivers in affiliate areas:

Bob Zadek is the host of The Bob Zadek Show, the longest running libertarian talk show in California – broadcast live on 860 AM, KTRB – The Answer (as well as 1380AM in Sacramento and 1590 in Seattle), every Sunday at 8am.
Bob talks about the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis from a purely libertarian standpoint. He believes in small government, fewer taxes, and greater personal freedom.
America has lost its way, but it cannot and does not need to be reinvented. Our founders were correct about their approach to government, as were John Locke, Adam Smith and the other great political philosophers who influenced them. The country’s first principles are economic and social freedom, republicanism, the rule of law, and liberty. Bob believes we must take the best of our founding principles and work from them because a country without principles is just a land mass.
He recently released an ebook of his best interviews, Secret Sauce: The Founders’ Original Recipe for Limited American Democracy, featuring insights from eight top scholars on where the American experiment with constitutionally-limited democracy went wrong.
Bob has been practicing finance law for 50 years, is listed in “The Best Lawyers In America,” and has been awarded the highest rating for Ethical Standards and Legal Ability by Peer Reviewed Martindale Hubbell. He holds a law degree and a Master’s degree in Law from NYU School of Law and is a Charter Fellow in the American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers, Past President of the Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys, Past Chair of the 1,500 member Commercial Finance Committee of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association, and Past Chair of the California State Bar UCC Committee.
He has been retained as an expert witness in more than 25 cases dealing with finance law. As an entrepreneur, he created and now manages Lenders Funding LLC, which makes and participates in loans to small business.
Bob’s passions are American history, entrepreneurism, libertarianism, and his number one fan and significant other Anne.
Featuring Top Constitutional Scholars & Economists:
