WMUC-FM, on the air since 1979, broadcasts in stereo at 88.1 MHz. WMUC-FM was among the last stations granted a 10-watt Noncommercial/Educational Class D License by the FCC. The air-chain includes an Orban Optimod-FM 8100A modulator and a Broadcast Electronics FX-30 FM exciter. The antenna is a Phelps-Dodge ECFM-2 2-section, sidemounted on a tower of 30 feet in height on the roof of the South Campus Dining Hall (total height above ground: 94 feet). WMUC-FM will soon be available on campus cable channel 88.

WMUC-AM was established in 1937, ranking it among the oldest college radio stations in the world. Until 1999, it broadcasted at 650 kHz via carrier-current to 34 dormitories, 14 fraternity houses, 7 sorority houses, and 6 apartment buildings on campus, as well as Leonardtown Community Center, the President's Residence, South Campus Dining Hall and the Stamp Student Union. WMUC-AM could also be heard on campus cable channel 65.

WMUC's engineers are responsible for the upkeep of the station's studio, broadcast, and computer equipment on a round-the-clock basis. The engineers also produce public affairs shows and other special programming, run our digital recording studio, and assist with remote broadcasts.
