A bit of a catch up post here. Aside from a few minor adjustments, WSCL, 89.5 FM is now broadcasting via a Nautel NV20 model transmitter. Meanwhile, work continues in Roxana on the transmitter for WSDL, 90.7, also a Nautel model.

For WSCL, 89.5's transmitter in Seaford, it's "out with the old, in with the new". The old Broadcast Electronics transmitter, which has been delivering you classical music for 25 years, is being removed to be replaced with a new Nautel transmitter.
The pictures posted here, by the way, come courtesy of Al Waller, our Contract Broadcast Engineer. The folks you see working on the removal and installation are from Public Media Engineering.
Delmarva Public Radio's transmitters are in two locations. WSCL, 89.5 is located in Seaford, Delaware. WSDL, 90.7 is located in Roxana, Delaware. As you can imagine, changing a transmitter is no small task.
Here are some pictures of WSCL 89.5 FM's current transmitter, located in Seaford, Delaware. This transmitter dates back from roughly 1987. Consider this; we are, in 2016, as far from 1987 as 1987 was from 1958! These photos come to us from our Contract Broadcast Engineer, Al Waller.
