WPM completed installation of a new transmitter and antenna near Kaycee that bridges the stretch of Interstate 25 between Casper and Buffalo.  The new signal provides a good amount of overlap with the 91.3 signal from Casper and fades where the 90.5 Buffalo signal begins.  A number of new areas between the 90.5 Buffalo and 90.9 Gillette signals along Interstate 90 are also now covered.

“The new signal, 88.7 KUWK, improves listening in an area that historically has suffered weak coverage” says Shane Toven, WPM Director of Engineering.

“The stronger KUWW 90.0 ensures an improved signal and has a broader reach.  The new signal represents a power increase from 10 watts to 8,000 watts,” says Shane Toven, WPM Director of Engineering.
