WAKE  2.
--2 shots of the WAKE tower.   Orten Carlton: " WAKE had the disadvantage of being 250 watts, running off an ungrounded tower atop an old warehouse at 447 West Peachtree Street [at Pine Street].  At night, they made it to about Sam's Crossing in Decatur on the Athens Highway before they became hash.  I never did get a clear listen.  WQXI at least made it into Athens (where I was then--and remain) in the daytime; WPLO did even a tad better."  (1)  sf:  daytime output raised to 1kw very late 1961.
