Listen on the Radio
WREK’s signal covers the entire metropolitan Atlanta area over 91.1 FM. At 100,000 watts, it dwarfs other similar non-commercial stations around the country, which are typically running at powers on the order of 100 to 1500 watts. Our primary service area includes the communities of Atlanta, Decatur, Smyrna, Marietta, East Point, College Park, Lilburn, Kennesaw, Douglasville, Duluth, Woodstock, Dallas, Snellville, Lawrenceville, Roswell, Alpharetta, Lithia Springs, Conyers, Stockbridge, Union City, Fayetteville, Riverdale, Forest Park, McDonough, Villa Rica, and Peachtree City. We can be received in all or part of Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Gwinnett, Douglas, Clayton, Rockdale, Bartow, Cherokee, Forsyth, Paulding, Carroll, Fayette, Henry, Newton, Walton, and Coweta counties, which have a combined population of over 4.3 million (2003 Census estimate).
Since 1993, WREK has also been transmitting worldwide on the Internet, first using home-grown software, then moving to the then popular (but proprietary) RealAudio format, and finally moving to the better MP3 format in early 2001. We offer both low and high bitrate MP3 streams, and a weeklong archive of our programming is available. Since fall 2003, WREK has been available on campus televisions as the audio of the TV guide channel on the Georgia Tech Cable Network.
WREK’s transmitter also broadcasts in HD. In addition to our regular on-air stream, we have an automated subchannel known as HD2. HD2 contains a mix of all of WREK’s formats. Even if you don’t have an HD radio, you can listen to both streams through our own website.
