AM station moved

West Allis, Wisconsin: 1460KHz:
WJTI moved from Racine.
Power from 500 watts daytime/62 night, non-directional to 1,000 daytime/240 night, directional, different patterns day & night. Upgrades from Class D to Class B.

Shares towers with WGLB-1560 Elm Grove, site located on the west side of West Allis. You can see it (if you look carefully...) on the east side of I-894. (just south of National Ave., if I remember properly)

This is not West Allis' first station. Older Milwaukeeans may remember WAWA-1590, which broadcast from just north of Bluemound Rd. near 124th St., with an African-American-oriented format.
