Our new WBJC transmitter needs a name! Post your suggestions in the comment box below.
Diana Ross is not the famous Supremes singer, but she does have big hair. Working in both Membership and Operations departments, she does a little bit of everything, including administering this website. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To assuage any male chauvinists on the jury, you can always nickname her “Cecil”.
My appreciation to all of you for all you do!
What’s this about HD? Can you get it over the Internet? (from a part-time Alexandria exile listening on his laptop).
Hey Bill, we’re in the very early stages of the HD channels… stay tuned for more on that in the near future!
How about “The Maestro” for the transmitter name.
Perhaps “The Diva” male chauvinists be hanged.
The name should be reflective of the changing name of the school with whom you are associated — Metamorphosis — as in “I never metamorphosis I didn’t like” (Hawkeye Pierce, M*A*S*H 4077)
That’s the name of the multi-use printer in Membership LOL!
Upon further investigation: Clarence.
Ms. Tuba Myriam for “Tuba mirum spargens sonum” which translated from Mozart’s Requiem means ‘The trumpet will send ITS -wbjc’s- wondrous sound’ all over MD, DC and surrounding areas.
I vote for Fernando’s suggestion, “Tuba Myriam” for “Tuba mirum spargens sonum”. Hoping, however, that MD, DC, and surrounding areas will not feel they are the sepulcra regionum through which this trumpet resounds! Maybe “Des Knabes Wunderhorn”? Or simply “das Wunderhorn”?
Oh that’s clever!
Call the transmitter “Theremin II”. A play on words – “theremin also”. A Theremin was an electronic musical instrument that is still in use mostly for special effects. The transmitter electronically reproduces the music so…the transmitter is a Theremin also.
Why not just, “BJ”!!
The Thin Lady (As in not fat) (Can be abbreviated to TTL)

I think the transmitter should be called – Salomon – after Johann Peter Salomon who was the great impresario that worked with Haydn and Mozart and was also highly esteemed by Beethoven. In addition the role of an impresario was/is important in bringing music to the public.
How about, reflecting extra power, “Molto Volto”?
I figure one more try, how about ‘The Magnificat Tower.’
After all, it is an FM transmitter, and 50 KW is your radiated power, not the transmitter power. I suggest consideration of the name Armstrong, in honor of the inventor of the superhetrodyne receiver and FM broadcasting.
These are all great suggestions! I think if Engineer Bob can’t pick one, we’ll put up a poll 🙂
If Baltimore can have a world trade tower, why can’t WBJC have it’s version of Cleopatra’s Needle?
Congratulations on your HD Radio transmitter. Your HD1 signal is clearly an improvement over the analog signal.
