When WKIE-WKIF-WDEK was sold to SBS, they ran an ISDN line from the Big City studio to the SBS studio over the weekend. It allowed SBS to take the station instantly (Wound up being about 9 minutes early if I remember right). They cranked up the volume of the Spanish music ontop of Energyís last stopset to test it a few minutes before that.
I didnít get a chance to hear it, but the same exact thing happened with 93.5 WJTW when Univision picked it up to simulcast, ironically the Highland Park 103.1. They cranked up the Viva audio while Star 93.5 was still playing. Just making sure things work.
Early morning on a Sunday sounds like a good time to do that, when nobody is listening.
By the way, WPNA does not subscribe to Nielsen, thus unless youíre a subscriber, the ratings will be a 0.0 with a cume of 0. You wonít see the numbers unless you have access to what subscribers do. If you are and can see those numbers, disregard this comment.
