ARCTIC MISSION FULL COLOR LOGO Transpare

Ever since H.M.S. Richards took to the air waves in the United States and Adventist World Radio started taking the Three Angels Messages to the world via short wave radio, others have been sending God’s last message to a lost and dying world through radio. Following in this tradition, Alaska has been using radio to reach rural Alaska.  The conference started its radio ministry by establishing and installing low power FM stations that broadcast 3ABN and other Adventist media.  Because of the low frequency and range, there was no Federal Communication Commission (FCC) requirements.  In addition, the cost was only $1,000 to place a radio in the community.  However, issues with signal strength, extreme climate exposure and reliability of equipment stalemated the program.

In 2015, a small radio station was built in Gambell, Alaska, a small village just 35 miles from Russia. The station began broadcasting in December 2015, but a significant challenge was how to effectively market the station in the community. An initiative to promote the station was started that included giving out radios with promotional materials/stickers, but, as with most grassroots efforts, finances were a challenge.The FM station began as an experiment to determine the effectiveness and viability of radio evangelism in a remote Alaska village. Its success led to the creation of the Alaska Adventist Radio Network (AARN), which now airs over stations in Fairbanks, Gambell, Nome, Savoonga, Shungnak and Wrangell, with coverage for more villages in the planning stages.
