WFNZ 610 AM now has an FM Translator on 102.5.  Looks like the university is just inside their coverage area.

Great step. Needs more juice, fuzzy in Kannapolis and Concord Mills area.

I guess this is a good sign for the longevity of their station (regardless of how you feel about their station); I thought I heard recently that CBS Sports Radio was selling off all it's assets?

I'm curious if it's still fuzzy at night.  Some stations can increase power after sunset and I believe atmospherics are better then, too.

I think that only works for AM stations, and you have to have a special license for it. WBT used to be known as "The Blowtorch of the South" and boasted of being heard at night from Cuba to Quebec.

Still true. 50,000 watts will reach that far at night. Just can't get them clearly in Gastonia at night because those 50,000 watts are a north/south directional signal. When I travel to NY and PA I always check it out and they are as clear as if you're in Charlotte.

If it's so fuzzy, how is it an improvement? This is an honest question.
