Signal is average over
all of Jefferson and Shelby counties. Can be received well in Tuscaloosa,
Clanton, Eutaw, Centerville and Demopolis.
Ave North, Birmingham
How's it sound?
The sound quality is
good but not great. Station still has terrible treble hashing problems.
Ocassional trouble with something in the chain causes annoying BZZZZZZZZZ!
Was originally a Tuscaloosa
station, with transmitter on 15th Street across from Taco Casa. Came on
the air in 1958 as WTBC, companion to WTBC-AM 1230. Later had a seperate
identity as WUOA (University of Alabama), as an adult contemporary station.
Later changed calls to WFFX (The Fox) and added a more upbeat mix of music.
Shortly before moving to the Birmingham market, the station went modern
rock. It was during that period the transmitter moved to a taller tower
near Vance, then to become Jamz.
