There has been a format change on my local FM dial. 89.7 W209BY Woodbridge, VA, 1 mile away, now relays the simulcast from 89.9 WPER Culpeper, VA and 90.5 WJYJ Fredericksburg, VA’s “Positive Hits PER” Christian Contemporary format. Previously, W209BY rebroadcasted Lynchburg, VA’s 88.3 WRVL “The Journey,” with the same format. My Local FM Stations page has been updated with this new info and a new logo from WPER/WJYJ.
For the past week or so, W209BY was off-air. In the station’s absence, I logged 89.7 WXMD California, MD, at 40 miles for the first time. Relog 89.7 WTMD Towson, MD, at 61 miles, was also an occasional visitor during this time. W209BY returned to air at 2:59 PM June 17.
