FM signal[edit]

WJNT also operates at night on WJNT-FM1 103.3, a 500 watt nighttime-only FM booster.

WJNT was granted permission for the FM booster due to massive nighttime interference by Cuban stations on 1180 AM, and has been operating a nighttime-only FM booster under special temporary authority from the FCC since December 20, 1999. [1]
