Title

Engineering Report for Non-Directive Antenna, Proof of Performance

Description

Box 5 Folder 12: "Folder 12 from 1967 is an engineering report for the antennae for WJLD. It is dated March of 1967 and WJLD is… and apparently this is trying to determine… well, they’ve taken numerous field strength measurements. Their daytime power is 1,000 watts (1Kw) and 250 watts at night (.25Kw). A UHF TV antenna was going to be installed on the WJLD tower. The performance report was produced to confirm that after the UHF antenna was installed, the variation in the broadcast bubble was negligible and would not be a source of interference. The tower is up on Red Mountain in Homewood. This is 1967. That’s where they are. They are still broadcasting from the tower in Homewood even though their studios are located downtown Birmingham. Folder also contains affidavit from engineer Claude Gray dated March 20, 1967. From the WJLD files."
