Just east of US 29 in
Gonzalez, probably south of Escambia Co. 184?
5,000 watts days only.
1 tower day and 2 towers
night: lobes to the north-northeast and south-southwest, towards Atmore
and Pensacola, respectively.
1090 traces its origin
back to 1955 as 990 AM in Flomaton, Alabama, with the calls WTCB (for Tri-City
Broadcasting, eventually it came to mean Takin' Care of Business). Eventually
the calls were changed to WPIK and moved to 1090 to increase from 500 watts
to 5 kW. Flomaton was too small to support the station, so it was moved
30 miles south to the Pensacola suburb of Cantonment. It became a nostalgia
formatted station and put 105.1 FM on the air in Cantonment to simulcast.
Recently the station
was silent for some time, but is now back on the air with religious programming
and the old WNVY calls from 1230 AM.
