SALISBURY, MD---For more than three decades, Salisbury University’s Delmarva Public Radio and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s WESM 91.3 FM have been allies in public broadcasting on the peninsula.

On Wednesday, July 1, they strengthen that bond with a new partnership to create Delmarva Public Media. The new organization will allow all three stations — including Delmarva Public Radio’s WSCL 89.5 FM and WSDL 90.7 FM — to share resources in an increasingly competitive market.

Now that WSCL 89.5's move to a new broadcast tower has been completed, we'd like to hear from you!

As you travel around the penninula (and even across the bay) let us know how well you are recieving the great classical music and NPR news on 89.5.

You can email us your report here or call 410-543-6895 and let us know how we sound.

Delmarva Public Radio is pleased to announce that WSCL 89.5 has returned broadcasting at full strength.

Thank you once again for your patience and understanding during this tower move.

WSCL 89.5 is now back on the air!

Yesterday, the coaxial cable was installed, linking the transmitter to the broadcasting antenna.  Today, some final adjustments need to be made to make the whole system as efficient and finely tuned as possible.

We will be posting additional pictures to keep you updated.

DPR Members,

In the last few weeks, WSCL 89.5 FM has been in the process of moving to a new broadcast tower. We’ve been operating at reduced power using temporary equipment.

We appreciate your patience and each listener who has expressed concern or donated to support DPR during this time.

WSCL will be back up to full broadcast power as soon as we can.

Progress is being made on WSCL 89.5's tower move.  As of Monday, February 2, the transmitter and antenna have been installed. What remains is to install the coaxial cable that connects the antenna to the transmitter.  This work is scheduled for this week.

update: Due to the expected rain this week, work may again be delayed.

Thank you to everyone who has called or emailed out of concern and for your continued patience while we continue with this project.

Here are some photographs of our recent WSCL  relocation. Our antenna and  transmitter aremoving from Virginia Avenue in Seaford, Delaware to a new location on Rt. 13, just north of the Seaford Walmart. 

WSCL 89.5 FM’s broadcast antenna and transmitter in Seaford, DE, are currently being  relocated to a new tower approximately two miles away from its current site.

The planned move comes at the request of representatives for WHYY, which owns the tower to which the equipment is attached. WSCL’s coverage area will remain unchanged, though the station may go off the air for a brief period during the relocation.

WSCL, 89.5 FM will be broadcasting for the next few days from a temporary transmitter and antenna.  We are in the process of moving our regular transmitter and antenna to a new tower location.

Some listeners may recieve a weaker signal during this transition process, but we will be back to full broadcast strength as soon as possible.
