Changes in Central Jersey
90.3 WVPH, a joint operation of Piscataway High School and Rutgers University – Livingston Campus has begun transmitting from its new tower on the Rutgers campus. The move ups the station’s power from 200 watts at 141 feet to 100 watts at 369 feet, effectively doubling the stations reach. More in the Home News Tribune.
