    WPOP FM Translator

    The WPOP translator on 100.9 Mhz is now on the air from the roof of City Place in Hartford. How are people hearing it?

    Does this mean John Fuller's 103.3 translator for WDRC 1360 will be built soon? They're supposed to be up on City Place as well. What about the 102.5 translator on Rattlesnake Mountain for his WMMW 1470?

    Of course on the weekend (anyway) 103.3 is occupied by an unlicensed outfit that plays Caribbean Music.

    Isn't WATR 1320 Waterbury supposed to be getting a translator that will reach the Meriden area as well?

    That means no more chances at the two 100.9 FM stations I already don't get in southern Hartford County: the Springfield, MA market and the New London/Groton market.

    I'm hearing it on the Berlin/Newington town line...barely. I also got it while at McDonald's on New Britain Road, in the Kensington section of Berlin...barely. If it wasn't for the Vinnie Penn Project ad I hear in both places, I never guessed it was connected to WPOP-AM.

    As for City Place, the signal for WUCS-FM 97.9 of Windsor Locks/Hartford is crap, whether in much of Berlin or even the south end of New Britain. I wish the Yankees could move to a better station, to be honest. There were times when I'd tune in WFAN-AM 660 to hear them.

    Unless iHeart wants to go totally moron on us and put WUCS's sports format with WWYZ or WHCN and saddle the country and classic hits listeners with the reception problem, the Yankees are stuck on 97.9. Hartford's only underperforming FMs (besides the not-for-profit-but-still-raking-in-money EMF zombie at 106.9) are owned by a small-time operator who'd never even think of paying what the Yankees want for broadcast rights, so you can forget 102.9 or 104.1.

    I picked up the 100.9 translator for WPOP this afternoon on the radio in the Honda Civic in the parking lot of Lowe's on New Britain avenue in Plainville. Reception was atrocious.

    I never have trouble hearing WUCS unless I head into Hebron. I can pull it clean all the way down Route 9 until Essex.

    I have no problem with it anywhere in New Britain, Berlin and most of Meriden. The signal really starts to deteriorate in Wallingford, in locations where all the other Hartford FMs -- including those from Avon Mountain -- are still booming in. It is an inferior signal in this part of the market.

    Yes. It will be on 97.7 from the WWYZ tower on Meriden Mountain. 250 watts.
