RE: [HCDX]: Fw: WWJZ - 640 kHz - Mount Holly, NJ

I found out some additional information from the person who used to work on the transmitter when it was at Florence, sharing a tower with 1460.
Disney disposed of all the old equipment in Florence and bought in brand-new everything for the antenna farm on North Pemberton Road, Pemberton Township. New audio equipment, new transmitter, new feedlines, new connectors, repairs to the towers and the ground system is no longer elevated.
Apparently the old equipment was patched, clipped, and in pretty tough shape. I am not being affected by the splatter and spurious signals like before, despite the 50 kw D line of sight from my high antenna, so I can only attribute it to the new installs and the controls on the audio.
Now, if we could only do something about the program content... locals miss the old content and don't like kiddies playing radio.

WWJZ - 640 kHz, which for years has been operating with low power and diplexed into another stations antenna has made some changes.  Formerly S4-5 here during the day they are now 20+/S9.  Programming is Radio Disney and they are IDing as "WWJZ Mount Holly - Philadelphia".  Assume they have activated their construction permit for U3 50000/950.  When this station first went on the air some yearts ago their antenna site used a elevated ground which proved to be so efficient that they were never able to operate at the fully authorized 50kw as they met their maximum allowed performance parameters at about 30 kw!
