University broadcasting station
WUOM-FM yesterday increased
transmission power from 13,500
watts to 44,000 watts after re-
ceiving approval of the Federal
Communications Commission.
This added power should in-
crease the WUOM range through-
out Michigan, particularly in the
southeastern section, according to
Dean Costen, studio engineer.
Listeners in areas covered pre-
viously should get a better signal
and clearer reception, he added.
