Heaven Radio, WHVN is
broadcasting from a new 400-foot tower! The new
tower was installed last month and the old one
(circa 1967) was removed. During the tower
installation process some five-miles of copper
ground-wire was buried in all directions from
the tower's base. A good ground system is an
important part of an AM radio station's signal.
Some engineers say that an AM station's ground
system accounts for 70% of it's signal. With the
new tower and ground system, WHVN
AM has never sounded better!
The best news, however, is
that an FM antenna is now mounted atop that new
WHVN tower, giving "Heaven
Radio" a Charlotte FM presence!! Listeners may
now hear WHVN's quality
Christian programming at 1240 on the AM dial ...
and at 104.3 on the FM dial!
and FM is also the Duke University Sports
affiliate for Charlotte.
