[Article] Eufalua Tribune article about the return of WYDK and WULA.
Owned by JDK Radio
// W243EJ Eufaula, AL (CP)
WULA Eufaula came on the air in 1948 with 250 watts. It was co-owned by Edward Fussell and R Hoffman.
It has been reported in 2011 that the station is silent.  The Tom Taylor on Radio-Info newsletter reported in June 2011 that the station was being transferred between Big Fish Broadcasting and Sounds Ideas LLC, both owned by Stanley Griffin, to avoid forclosure.  In September 2011 the calls changed from the original WULA ones to WNRA.  The sale went through in December 2011.  Another silent STA was filed in 2012 citing transmitter issues.  In the interim, the station picked up sports talk with ESPN.  The station struggled off and on until April of 2016, when it was resurrected with the original WULA calls, taking on a gospel/Christian format (along with NASCAR and Alabama football) with "The Harbor" name.  The station went silent in late August 2016, when they lost their time broker.

Despite being silent, the station won a construction permit for a new FM translator in May 2018, on 96.5 MHz.  The station filed multiple Silent STA requests since then.

The station, along with sister station WYDK, was sold by Sound Ideas LLC to Jeff Kierce's JDK Radio for $150,000.  JDK turned the license in to the FCC in mid-September 2019.
