The student-run radio station of UMBC in Baltimore, MD. WMBC was founded in 1979 as the WUMD Radio Club and broadcast over carrier current circuits to the dorms and one or two eating areas on campus for a few years. In 1998, the studio and transmitting equipment were revamped, changing over from carrier current to a Part 15 low-power AM broadcast transmitter in the center of campus. Three Internet streaming audio servers were also installed to increase the range of the station to the tech-savvy UMBC students and alumni.
