WMTG Radio continues to assess the impact of a new station that has begun operation on 88.1 FM. The station, which is licensed to Georgia-based Athens Christian Radio, Inc., last week turned on its new transmitter near Robbins.
The station received a permit to operate at a full power of nearly 5,000 watts, and it significantly blocks the WMTG signal north and east of Mount Gilead.
WMTG is licensed as a Low-Power FM (LPFM) station, and no protection is afforded to that class of service. This station’s parent organization, the Mount Gilead Community Concerts Association (MGCCA), will continue to explore options to provide the best possible coverage on the air.
WMTG can also be heard online at wmtg.org and with the TuneIn mobile app, both of which are available worldwide and are unaffected by the new station.
