Princeton Settles LPFM Quandary With Gift and Fold


Tune to 107.9 MHz in Central New Jersey, and you may hear a wide variety of Classic Hits and an announcer using a wee bit of reverb on “WOLD.”

That’s the call sign for a LPFM that happens to share a very tight short-spacing situation with an FM translator just down the road. While this would normally create interference, the facilities share the same programming, originating from Princeton University.

Now, the school has a plan to eliminate the interference, secure a second FM signal in the process, and air paid advertisements without running afoul of low-power FM rules.
