DLC Media purchases new transmitters

DLC Media, Inc. the licensee of Radio Stations: Memories 107.9 WAMW-FM and The General 95.9 FM W240CE both in Washington recently purchased and installed new FM transmitters.

According to Dave Crooks, president and general manager, the company decided it was time to upgrade equipment to more energy efficient units. “The purchase doesn’t change our licensed wattage. However, the new transmitters should reduce our energy usage, increase dependability while making them easier to seek on the FM dial.”

Crooks said the new transmitters were purchased from Gates Air in Quincy, Illinois. This company was formerly named Harris Corporation. The original WAMW-FM transmitter was built in Quincy. It was installed in 1989 by former owner William Greene.

WAMW-FM is a 3,000 watt radio station licensed to Washington, Indiana. The transmitter is located south of US 50, just east of Wheatland. According to Crooks, A 3,000-watt station normally covers a 25-mile radius in every direction. However, Crooks added the stations normally over-perform. “Weather can be a factor especially during the summer, but our recent upgrade means we are getting the most out of our licensed facilities.”

W240CE-FM 95.9 is the low-watt translator duplicating the programming of WAMW-AM 1580. It’s licensed for 99 watts and is located along Interstate 69 south of Washington. The General 95.9 & 1580 can be heard in a 15-mile radius of Washington on both FM 95.9 24 hours a day and during daylight hours on AM 1580. The stations can also be streamed from www.wamwamfm.com.

DLC Media also completed improvements from the Nov. 17, 2013, tornado which hit the Washington Radio Center at 800 W. Nat’l Hwy. “I’m proud of our facilities. We’ve worked hard to make our stations the best in the local radio market,” said Crooks.
