- This station dates back
to an original construction permit first issued in October 2012 to the
Anniston Seventh-Day Adventist Church, but the frequency actually goes
back to the 1940's. For more information on the history of the
frequency itself, see the WHMA-FM profile page.
The original permit was to be for a fuller Class C3 signal, with 25 kW
from a tower near the Longlead Botanical Gardens, near Saks and north
of the present transmitter site. In May 2017 the station was
able to go up to a taller nearby mountain and decrease power while
maintaining much of the same coverage. Interestingly, this is
the site of the previous incarnation on this frequency, WHMA, when it
was an East Alabama 100 kW powerhouse.
The station filed a license to cover in May 2018 and began airing a
Seventh-Day Adventist talk format called "Elijah Radio", which is also
heard on WSJL in Bessemer.
