- WVFI policy change will take time (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
I am writing this letter in response to one of our "fans" that was writing to criticize the Administration for "pulling the plug" on WVFI. After broadcasting on 640 AM, not 660 AM, for over 20 years the station along with the transmitters that were necessary to broadcast our signal over carrier current became completely run down. Carrier current is a form of AM broadcasting that sends a broadcasting signal through cables and transmitters that would run from LaFortune to the dorms and through their electrical outlets. While this system worked 15 years ago, once students began bringing TV's, VCR's, computers or anything else that needed an outlet, the signal became distorted and the quality of the broadcast deteriorated.
