A view from the tower

Earlier this month, WGCU sent a drone to capture photos of the work being done on our main transmission tower in rural Charlotte County. This work will strengthen our signal.

But periodically during the next few weeks, listeners may notice a decline in reception, particularly in Charlotte, DeSoto and Sarasota counties, while workers are physically on the tower itself. A reduction in power is necessary for the safety of the tower climbers. At these times, they’ll be somewhere on the 929-foot tower, working to enhance your experience.

In the meantime, remember that programming can be heard clearly on WGCU.org or on the WGCU mobile app.

Thanks for your patience as we bring you improved service!
