WUCP is now broadcasting on 99.9!

 

 


 

We thank all of our listeners for your support and prayers to keep our station WUCP on the air!  Many of you wrote letters of support to the FCC and signed a petition to the FCC to support our efforts to stay on the air.  Your efforts and the 'Lord's Will' has been successful; Thank all of you!


 



THANK YOU Congressman Duncan and Senator Alexander

 

Tennessee Congressman John Duncan  contacted the FCC twice to pledge his support and concern for WUCP.  Tennessee Congressman John Duncan has joined to co-sign the House Bill 2802 to help LP FM stations and has expressed his support of WUCP to continue to serve the citizens of Farragut.  

 

Senator Lamar Alexander contacted the FCC to pledge his support and concern about WUCP being forced to move from 106.1 and asked the FCC to help WUCP stay on the air.  The FCC  replied by letter to Senator Alexander that they  suggested 99.9 and expect to approve our move.

  


Why WUCP had to move:

 

WUCP was forced to move from 106.1 to a new frequency, 99.9 in 2011.  Under current FCC rules, Low Power FM radio stations such as WUCP operate with "second class citizenship" to high power commercial stations.  Current legislation is in Congress to correct this situation, see Prometheus Radio Project below.  WUCP was assigned the frequency of 106.1 in 2002 and then the Commission sold the frequency to the highest bidder in 2007 without notice that they had already assigned the frequency to our station.  We had to move.    We are on 99.9 now but butting heads with a high power station in Ashville, NC.  See note below on receiving WUCP on your radio and also on the Internet or your smart phone.

 Having problems receiving WUCP on your FM radio?   We are a low powered FM station, 100 watts, as compared to most of the commercial FM stations running 5000 to 50,000 watts.   We are a community radio station focused only for Farragut; as licensed by the FCC as a low powered community FM station.  The closer you are to Union CP Church on the west end of Farragut the better you will receive our station.  Car radios generally do better than household FM radios as they have an outside antenna and better receivers than small FM household radios.  You can also pick up our station on the Internet by going to our website at www.wucplp.com and following the directions for our Internet stream.  Smart phones can also access our Internet stream by downloading an application like "TuneIn" and search for local stations, WUCP.  We have many world-wide listeners on our Internet stream.

 

 


History of WUCP

An application was filed with the FCC the summer of 2001 by the Union Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Farragut for a low powered FM radio station to serve the Town of Farragut.  The FCC had just opened a period for filing for this new service and the church endorsed a proposal by Dave Garner, that Union go forward with this new ministry.  We only have a five day period for filing the application electronically on the Internet.  The required information was gathered and a Board of Directors appointed to oversee the project. 

 

The application was filed and “set dormant” for three years while the FCC decided to go forward with this new service over the heavy objections of the commercial broadcasters to the new service nationally.   The ‘log-jam’ was finally cleared in 2003 and construction permits were released by the FCC.  WUCP LP received our construction permit in November of 2004.  We assembled a team to put the station on the air.  Equipment had to be selected and assembled.  The antenna had to be mounted on top of our building.  All guidelines by the FCC had to be carefully followed.   The call letters WUCP, for W Union Cumberland Presbyterian, were selected and applied for.  The call letters were available, “ by the Lord’s Will,” and assigned to our station.

 

Our first broadcast was Wednesday evening, Feb 4, 2005 at 9:30PM.  Since then we have been serving our community 24 hours per day, seven days a week.

 

WUCP is a low powered station, and therefore our broadcast is limited to around 10-15 miles.  We cannot do anything about this as the power level is limited by the FCC due to the class of license.  The low powered service is intended to serve a local community only and range is estimated to be 10 miles or less.  Our Internet broadcasting provides worldwide reception, go to www.wucplp.com.

 

You can do several things to improve reception:  such as using an external antenna on your receiver or outside antenna such as TV antenna or special FM broadcast antenna.  Car radios generally pick up better due to their outside antenna and specifications.

 

We are now broadcasting on the Internet on this connection:  Loudcast.com

So your PC can pickup our station from any place that you can access the web.

 

We are broadcasting the following sports for Farragut High School:  Baseball.  A big part of our community service is Farragut Sports Broadcast and high school Football. 

 

Business Underwriting:  If your business would like to underwrite our programming or sports broadcast contact our business office at 865-966-9040.  Our rates are very low and listener audience is very good in Farragut, TN and surrounding area.  

 

Contributions:  Contributions to keep WUCP on the air and help increase our music library is greatly appreciated. Any amount would be a blessing to us and as a church contribution is tax deductible.  You may mail contributions to our station or care of Union Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 400 Everett Rd, Farragut, TN 37934.
