Frequency change in Illinois

WSQR-1560 Sycamore, Ill. has moved to 1180.

With the move comes a significant increase in daytime power from 198 watts to 900.

Nighttime power actually decreases from 18 watts to one. However, on 1560 WSQR was only allowed to use that 18 watts from sunset in Bakersfield, Cal. (where dominant station KNZR is). Between Sycamore sunset and Bakersfield sunset WSQR was limited to 2.3 watts.

The lower dial position will also improve coverage considerably.

WSQR will remain non-directional both day and night.
