In the 1960s, 70s, and into the 80s, the big AM radio station along the U.S. eastern seaboard was WAPE "The Big Ape" in Jacksonville. WAPE put out a monster 50,000-watt signal on 690 that blanketed the east coast from Washington DC to Miami. "The Mighty 690" was the "home town station" for communities throughout the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida.
