Also couldn’t help but notice the former WMCW Harvard, WKKD Aurora and WCGO Chicago Heights which all went off so 1590 in Evanston could power up. Saddest loss in my opinion was WMCW. It was a community beacon for that area. Used to tune in quite often when I had the chance. Since then a network of Part 15 AM transmitters went on serving the area and eventually they got what is now 101.3 WHIW-LP. Both of those operations mirror what WMCW did. Local radio for a small town.
Doubt we’ll be hearing from WAIT again anytime soon unless they can score a translator.
