FM signal

WJNT operated at night on WJNT-FM 103.3 until June, 2017.

WJNT was granted permission for the FM booster due to massive nighttime interference by Cuban stations on 1180 AM, and has been operating a nighttime-only FM booster under special temporary authority from the FCC since December 20, 1999. [1]

Once WJNT-FM1 was turned off, WJNT started simulcasting 24/7 on W245AH, a 135 watt FM translator at 96.9 mHz licensed to Jackson, Mississippi.
