WDCV Studio

Description

For over 50 years, WDCV has been the voice of Dickinson College. The station started in 1959 as an AM operation at 640 Khz, with broadcasts confined to the Dickinson campus. WDCV expanded to a 10-watt FM service in 1973, and began broadcasting 18 hours a day at 88.3 Mhz. The station increased its transmitter power to 250 watts and began stereo broadcasting in 1983. More recently, WDCV began webcasting at www.wdcvfm.com, and streaming over on mobile devices via Stretch Internet. We broadcast a full spectrum of musical genres. As an educational, non-profit station, WDCV-FM is operated on a volunteer basis by undergraduate students at Dickinson College and members of the Carlisle community. The principal purpose of WDCV-FM is to provide a forum for overlooked, suppressed or under-represented voices and music. We broadcast cultural, educational, informational and other programs and materials for the entertainment and profit of the public, and for the education and training of our staff. We are Carlisle’s only non-profit radio station.
