The station, which has been silent since 2010 is now being paired with a FM translator as Oldies 99.5 WSOS. 1170 WSOS operates as a 710 watt daytimer, while the translator which has not yet received its license to cover at 99.5 will operate 24/7 with 36 watts. The translator had been licensed to operate on 88.9 as W205CD was purchased by Geddings’ GLK Consultants last week for $30,000. The St. Augustine Record has more details on the programming of the new station.
The new WSOS is unconnected to its former sister station, Renda Broadcasting’s “Classic Rock 94.1” WSOS-FM Fruit Cove/Jacksonville.
