The tower for Linwood radio station WOND 1400 AM should be functioning again by next week, after being damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

“We are still without electricity right now,” said Longport Media engineer Mike Ferriola.

The tower for the station was found under 4 feet of water after the storm and the transmitters were damaged, he said. After electricity is returned, he will replace the transmitter and if there is no hidden damage the station will be back on air.

If there is more damage to the system than initially anticipated it will extend the repair time, Ferriola said.

Officials said the station will continue to broadcast from 102.7 FM in the meantime.
