WPOZ (88.3 FM, Positive Hits Z88.3) is a radio station in Orlando, Florida, which broadcasts contemporary Christian music.

Other frequencies[edit]

Besides broadcasting on 88.3 MHz, this station also broadcasts on other frequencies in different areas of Central Florida, including:[1]

WPOZ, WMYZ and WHYZ also broadcast in HD Radio.

In late 2008, WPOZ was granted authorization by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to increase its signal strength to 100,000 watts; this was accomplished when the Central Florida Educational Foundation acquired a station in Lecanto, Florida, WLMS, from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Petersburg. As that station also broadcast on 88.3 FM, Central Florida Educational Foundation closed down WLMS, enabling WPOZ to increase its signal strength without interfering with that station. After the upgrade, WPOZ's main signal would sufficiently cover areas already served by some of its repeaters, making them redundant. Those were moved into Orlando to rebroadcast the HD offerings.

WPOZ had a repeater in Daytona Beach, WEAZ 88.1 MHz; this station signed on in 1995 as WANX, becoming a simulcast of WPOZ as WEAZ in 1998. The station closed in December 2008, and its license was soon cancelled, following WPOZ's power increase that made this rebroadcaster redundant.[2]


WPOZ-HD2 broadcasts a Christian urban contemporary format as Hot 95.9; for those without HD radio receivers, it is heard in Orlando on a low-powered repeater, W240BV.[3]


WPOZ-HD3 broadcasts an urban gospel format as G106.3; this station also has a low-powered repeater in Orlando, W292DZ. It also has a low power translator for Seminole County, W227CP 93.3 MHz.


WPOZ-HD4 broadcasts a Christian rock format as 103.7 The Rock; this station also has a low-powered repeater in Clermont, W279CT.

W240BV, W273CA and W292DZ used to be low-powered repeaters that rebroadcast WPOZ in the Lake County area but were moved to Orlando.
