Cary Simpson the station's previous owner was able to convince Valcom the maker of fiberglass whip antennas to place a prototype antenna on his antenna site. The station used a 74-foot Valcom V-33070 fiberglass whip antenna rather than a conventional AM radio tower because of Simpson's desire.

In 2008 due to major mechanical failure of the internal radiator element of the Valcom, the station constructed a 150 foot folded unipole designed by R.Morgan Burrow, Jr. P.E.[1] Which yields a higher operating efficiency than the Valcom.
