WJON/IP is an IP based radio station based out of Fairfax County, Virginia. We provide our listeners with a variety of music!
We bring you EAS and other crucial information when needed, as getting the word out about imminent severe weather and other civil threats is of most importance.
Currently, WJON is run off a SAGE EAS ENDEC (1822). This ENDEC (ENcoder, DECoder) allows alerts to be forwarded immediately upon reception. Most alerts will be relayed automatically.
WJON has a TFT EAS 911 used for local monitoring. This is sent to the SAGE under the callsign “STERLING”.
WJON also has a Gorman Redlich CAP-DEC 1 which relays official iPAWS alerts from official state and local sources.
WJON/IP Is a proud participant of the GWES (Global Weather and EAS Society) Encoder Relay Network (ERN)
