MIMS COMMUNITY RADIO INC Christian WKTO/NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FL completed a new 410-foot broadcast tower, according to THE DAYTONA BEACH NEWS-JOURNAL. Until recently, the station piggybacked off another tower owned by another company.
"This is a great move forward in the history of WKTO," GM CAROL HENRY told the newspaper. "We have been hampered with a low signal for our station for some time, but now we are looking forward to a new era for the spreading of the gospel in CENTRAL FLORIDA."
The new tower is twice the height of the old tower, allowing the station to be heard in five counties: BREVARD, FLAGLER, OSCEOLA, SEMINOLE and VOLUSIA. The 25,000-watt station now has the potential to reach 1.4 million people.
