WMFO

WMFO (91.5 FM) is a radio station licensed to Medford, Massachusetts, USA. The station is owned by Tufts University and is run by students.

History

Prior to the licensing of WMFO, the station was home to the AM radio station WTUR. In the late 1960s Tufts University students ran a wire from WTUR's 20-watt transmitter to the MBTA Commuter railroad tracks that run directly behind the studio building. The signal could be heard clearly as far as Quincy, Massachusetts 15 miles to the south, and as far north as Nashua, New Hampshire, more than 30 miles beyond the station's permitted broadcasting limits. This stunt drew the attention of the FCC who promptly shut the station down.
