WBCP Champaign-Urbana

Post by fuzzpower » Sat Apr 13, 2019 1:05 am

I was driving through Champaign, and tuned in to WBCP 1580AM, for the simple fact it has the lowest daytime power of any licensed AM station at a whopping 135 watts. Signal itself seems to cover the immediate area, but the audio is so low I couldn’t hear it well. Even cranking up the volume didn’t help much.

They have no translator and apparently locally owned. Music is hip hop so not really my thing. Sounds syndicated.

I can’t imagine this billing much at all.

When I've heard it, It's been R&B oldies. I believe it's diplexed on the tower at the Saga complex. Not sure when it moved there. WBCP was originally 250w.
