As Chief Engineer Ron Charles would say, “Here’s another story we’re following for you:” WNZF will now boast a stronger signal and eliminate the so-called “picket fence effect” for people listening as they drive.
The Federal Communications Commission approved the radio station’s request to move its FM transmitter from the Flagler County Fairgrounds, in Bunnell, to a tower on U.S. 1, in Palm Coast, improving the reception of 106.3 FM.
WNZF General Manager David Ayres said, “This technical upgrade is a large investment that will allow WNZF News Radio to give the entire community a much stronger signal and improved quality.”
Ayres said the total investment is about $100,000. The station has been on the air since September 2008. It was Flagler County’s first commercial radio station.
The AM frequency at 1550 was also recently upgraded from 8,000 to 11,000 watts.
