WARM EARLY PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE
Here is a look at one of the WARM Radio programming schedules. This ad comes from our friend Joe Butash.
FREQUENCY CHANGES AFFECTING WARM
WARM was not always n the 590 dial. As a matter of fact WARM made a few migrations around the AM band as evidenced by this article in the Scranton newspapers of the day. From March 28th, 1941.
795 RADIO STATIONS TO CHANGE DIAL LOCATIONS BEGINNING TOMORROW WQAN AND WGBI OPERATE 910 KILOCYCLES AND WARM ON 1400
Wave lengths of 795 out of 883 broadcasting stations in the United States are to be changed tomorrow morning at 3 O’clock. The three Scranton stations, WQAN, WGBI and WARM are among the stations which will operate on changed frequency. WQAN and WGBI now operating on 880 kilocycles will operate on 910 kilocycles and WARM will go from 1370 to 1400 kilocycles.
There is to be no general change in stations on channels from 550 to 720 kilocycles. Those which have been operating above 730 kilocycles will be received at slightly different places (usually higher) on the dial under the new allocations. With few exceptions, the present order of stations will remain the same. Their dial positions simply will be moved up a few notches.
Push button sets will have to be readjusted for all stations higher than 730 kilocycles and government radio engineers are advising that these changes be made by radio technicians.
The wave length changes, most sweeping since the big reallocation of 1928 when clear channels were set up, are expected to improve radio program reception generally. The principal aim of the commission in ordering the changes is to eliminate inter station interference.
On the dials now, stations WQAN and WGBI come in at a setting of 88 or 880 dependent on whether there are two or three figures designating the wave length. On and after tomorrow they will be received at a setting of 91 or 910. WARM now received at 1370 or 137 will come in at 1400 or 140. Listeners to local stations will find that other stations now coming in close to those will continue their neighborly positions under the new arrangement.
In general the frequency shifts will be along these lines: Stations now on Channel of 550 to 720 kilocycles are unchanged.
Stations between 740 and 780 kilocycles will move up 10 kilocycles or one channel.
Stations using 790 to 870 kilocycles will move up 20 kilocycles or one channel. (two channels). Stations between 880 and 1450 kilocycles will generally advance 30 kilocycles. (three channels). Clear channel stations will shift from 1469 to 1490 kilocycles to 1500-1530 kilocycles.
