[HCDX] Radio WVUV American Samoa Returns
Radio WVUV American Samoa Returns
Another South Pacific heritage callsign returns, as WVUV FM in Pago
Pago, American Samoa comes on air.
Known locally as V103 'The People's Station' and operating at 103.1
FM, WVUV FM broadcasts Samoan and Polynesian favorites and streams
live worldwide from www.wvuv.com.
The owner of WVUV FM is also bringing back WVUV AM after a lot of
paperwork with the FCC and several false starts. A renewal of license
has been granted as well as a move along the dial to 720 AM from 648
AM. The new frequency conveniently reaches both US and Pacific car
radio dials as 720 AM is common to both.
There's still a new tower to be built and other engineering work
needed, but hopefully, it won't be too long before WVUV AM joins
sister stations WVUV FM and KKHJ FM serving American Samoa.
You can see several articles as well as images about WVUV including
the story of how the station was started in WWII [WVUV Radio Romance]
all at our website www.radioheritage.net.
