Other frequencies

Besides broadcasting on 88.3 MHz, this station also broadcasts on other frequencies in different areas of Central Florida, including:

WPOZ and WMYZ also broadcast in HD Radio.

In late-2008, WPOZ was granted authorization by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to increase its signal strength to 100,000 watts; this was accomplished when the Central Florida Educational Foundation acquired a station in Lecanto, Florida, WLMS, from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Petersburg. As that station also broadcast on 88.3 FM, Central Florida Educational Foundation closed down WLMS, enabling WPOZ to increase its signal strength without interfering with that station. After the upgrade, WPOZ's main signal would sufficiently cover areas already served by its repeaters, making them redundant.

WPOZ's signal used to be repeated on W212BF 90.3 MHz in Tavares and W247AX 102.7 MHz in Groveland; however, these repeaters later went dark. W212BF would close due to a new station in Eustis on 90.3, WIGW, owned by CSN International.[2]

WPOZ had a repeater in Daytona Beach, WEAZ 88.1 MHz; this station signed on in 1995 as WANX, becoming a simulcast of WPOZ as WEAZ in 1998. The station closed in December 2008, and its license was soon cancelled, following WPOZ's power increase that made this rebroadcaster redundant.[3]


WPOZ-HD2 broadcasts a Christian urban contemporary format as "Hot 95.9"; for those without HD radio receivers, it is heard in Orlando on a low-powered repeater, W240BV 95.9 MHz.


WPOZ-HD3 broadcasts a gospel format as "G106.3"; this station also has a low-powered repeater in Orlando, W292DZ 106.3 MHz.


WPOZ-HD4 broadcasts a Christian rock format as "103.7 The Rock"; this station also has a low-powered repeater in Clermont, W279CT 103.7 MHz.

W240BV and W292DZ used to be low-powered repeaters that rebroadcast WPOZ in the Mount Dora area.
