W238BJ (95.5 FM) is a commercial radio translator licensed to Mt. Auburn, Ohio providing limited coverage to northern parts of Greater Cincinnati. Owned by EMF Broadcasting, Inc., W238BJ formerly simulcast the alternative rock format heard on WEBN-HD2 under the callsign W292DT at 106.3 FM.

History[edit]

W238BJ began on September 24, 2004. On April 24, 2009, the translator adopted the callsign W292DT. Although FM translators in the U.S. are generally not permitted to originate their own programming, the Federal Communications Commission has recently allowed FM translators to simulcast the programming of both AM stations and HD2 digital subchannels. In effect, this allows radio companies to create additional analog stations, like W292DT, outside the traditional path established by the FCC. W292DT is such a station. Prior to August 2012, W292DT carried content from the K-LOVE radio network.[1][2] On August 16, 2012, translators W292DT and W264BW began simulcasting the alternative rock format on WEBN-HD2 as "The Project 100.7 / 106.3".[3] On March 20, 2013, the translator re-adopted the callsign W238BJ. As of January 2014, the translator broadcasts over 95.5 MHz.
