WCBN's Big Boost
U-M's student radio will soon be heard all the way to Whitmore Lake
From the January, 2014 issue
When it started in 1972, the proudly uncommercial "free-form" station broadcast at a measly 10 watts, barely enough to reach the city limits. After the station boosted its signal to 200 watts in the eighties, it could be heard in Barton Hills and parts of Saline, Dexter, and Ypsilanti.
