    WEHM Complains of Interference from WJMJ Translator

    WEHM 92.9 is receiving interference complaints from listeners (and advertisers) on Long Island's North Shore
    (and the south shore of Connecticut) due to the relocation of WJMJ Hartford's Hamden, CT-licensed FM translator W225DI to 92.9 (from 93.1).
    The translator also moved its non-directional antenna 20 feet up the (WKCI-FM) tower to 460 feet.

    WEHM has tried to resolve the issue with WJMJ but has not succeeded,
    thus leaving WEHM to likely have to file a complaint with the FCC.

    You;d think the salt-water path propagation enhancement factor would have prevented the move to 92.9 to begin with, wouldn't you? Or did the FCC bureaucrats in DC forget about the Long Island Sound when granting WJMJ's request?

    Why did WJMJ leave 93.1? Interference complaint from WHYN-FM Springfield, MA? Doesn't seem plausible to me.

    Yawn. WJMJ is a better station that WEHM. Oldies, The Saturday Opera broadcasts, and American Standards by the Sea. Not to mention their air staff is made up of many personalities that had been with other Hartford stations.

    Jerry Kristafer (WDRC-FM)
    Steve Savino (WTIC AM)
    Friendly Floyd Wright (WDRC-FM/WWYZ)
    Allison Demers (WRCH/WATR - she also does fill-in traffic on the Entercom Stations in the afternoon sometimes)
    Glenn Colligan (He still does the Tag Sale show on WTIC, but he used to do weekends on WRCH)
    Tom Zarecki (He was at WDRC-FM a long time ago and WNTY many years before that)
    Mike Stevens (WDRC-FM)

    My apologies for any misspellings.

    I enjoy much of WJMJ's programming, but 88.9 comes in just as well here as it does in Southington. WEHM is a AAA station, something neither Hartford or New Haven has, and the new repeater eliminatss that format for listeners from the shoreline to the northern end of New Haven County. I have other stations to tune to for classical and oldies. If I liked standards, WMNR plays them during the evenings and their 91.5 Guilford covers southern New Haven County well, while the 91.9 translator serves Meriden and Wallingford.
