Radio Pics From Sea to Shining Sea

Here are a couple more pretty snapshots from our readers

Radio World loves to receive photographs that capture the allure of radio. Recently, we’ve put out multiple calls to our readership asking for pretty pictures of their facilities, and they did not disappoint! Want to share your own pics? We welcome all photos that capture the wonder of radio. Email them to [email protected].

Below, two U.S. readers share a couple of facility snapshots, taking us from coast to coast!

The Granite State

Here is the radio tower for WMEX(FM) in Farmington, New N.H., and WWPC(FM) in New Durham, N.H.

Dennis Jackson, founder of WMEX, says the photo was taken in May 2002 shortly after the height of the tower was raised to 100 feet.

The WMEX call letters — which were also used during the 1980s by what is now WWDJ(AM) in Boston, as well as WCLX(FM) in Westport, N.Y. — refer to a popular top–40 station of the 1960s and 1970s on 1510 AM in Boston, Mass. (which has since reclaimed the WMEX call sign after this photo was taken).

Today, WMEX is known as WNHI(FM), which serves the Lakes and Seacoast Regions of New Hampshire, and is currently owned by Educational Media Foundation.

The Golden State

KECR(AM) is licensed to El Cajon, Calif., and serves the San Diego radio market. It is owned by Family Radio (Family Stations Inc.), which carries a Christian talk and teaching radio format, along with traditional hymns and worship music.

Up against the foothills of El Cajon Mountain, Jeff Zimmer, the southwest regional engineer for
Family Stations Inc., says the company’s tower site also plays host to KCBQ 1170, a diplex operation.

“A beautiful day after a light, overnight rain,” Zimmer said of the picture. Six of seven towers are shown.
