W-45-D, which will be the first
radio station in the country to use
the' new system of broadcasting,
frequency modulation, will be De-
troit's newest broadcaster, the Fed-
eral Communications Commission
has announced.
The Detroit News was awarded a
construction permit Oct. 31 to build
the frequency modulation station,
which operates under a system of
broadcasting often called "staticless
radio." A transmitter has been in-
stalled on the 45th floor of the
Penobscot Building, former offices
of W8XWJ, the ultra high frequency
station, opened in 1936, which led up
to the establishment of W-45-D.
As soon as the call letters were
received, application was made for
permission to begin a series of trans-
mission tests. These will be prepara-
tion for the inaugural of regular
program service expected to begin
in the near future.
Under a new method of station call
numbers, devised by the FCC with
the cooperation of the FM Broad-
casters Inc., "W" will be usedas a
prefix for all FM stations east of
the Mississippi and "K" for those
Ito the west.
