Ohio’s WYSO to boost signal power, move to better facility

WYSO-FM in Yellow Springs, Ohio, will move to renovated studios and increase its signal strength from 37,000 watts to 50,000 watts before year’s end, thanks to a $1 million grant from its licensee, Antioch University, approved by the school’s board Sept. 23. The upgrade will extend the station’s reach in southwest Ohio and improve signal quality. The FCC has approved the changes, university officials said in a statement. “Fifty thousand watts is a big deal,” WYSO General Manager Neenah Ellis said in the release.
