History[edit]

It is believed that WWEB first signed on in 1969. In the early days the station was on the third floor north attic of the building that we called the Science building (now Humanities) The wide studio shot shows some album poster art. They used a Bauer 5-pot slide board. The transmitter was on a cabinet right behind the turntables, made by Granger. The transmitter fed a 7/8” line up to the roof where a 2-bay horizontal V only antenna was mounted on a pole or small tower section.
