About the FM Translator
1. What is an FM Translator?
The FM translator will rebroadcast the AM signal on the FM band.
When the AM signs-off at night, the translator will continue to broadcast at night.
2. Will you keep the AM Station?
Yes. Since the FM translator will rebroadcast the AM signal on the FM, the FCC (Federal
Communications Commission) requires us to continue to operate the AM stations. WYZD in Dobson
will continue to broadcast from sun-up to sun-down on 1560am, and WCOK in Sparta will continue
to broadcast from sun-up to sun-down on 1060am.
3. What freqency will it be on?
WYZD (1560AM) will broadcast on 95.3FM.
WCOK (1060AM) will broadcast on 107.3FM.
4. How soon will it be before you get the FM translator up and running?
We hope to have the FM Translator for WYZD up this summer, and to have the FM Translator
for WCOK up at the end of the year.
5. How far will it go out?
It should go out a 15-mile radius from Dobson, NC and a 15-mile radius from Sparta, NC.
