91.3 WHQR (Wilmington) has fired up a translator (W255BZ) on 98.9, effectively killing my reception of Fun 98.9 in Charleston. This makes no sense to me as their 100K signal already covers the Grand Strand.
I liked Fun 98.9 too, at least when Tom Kent was on. I actually prefer WEZV, so no real harm for me, but it would be nice to have the other alternative.
This has been needed for a long time. No one was playing classical music in the area, and I understand they do.
I could be wrong because the radio I have now won't pick up anything below 92 FM, but I don't recall ever picking up WHQR in my room, and I've done pretty well with Wilmington stations. That was at a time when I could pick up WHMC and WLGI, but not WKVC. I just wonder if the radio was having problems then and I didn't know it.
Now I did pick up WHQR in the car, but not dependably.
