WCDL is an AM broadcasting station licensed to Carbondale, Pennsylvania. The station operates on a frequency of 1440 kHz with 5,000 Watts of power using a non-directional antenna during daytime hours only. However, the station has plans filed with the Federal Communications Commission to extend their broadcast hours to nighttime with a power reduction to 37 Watts (same non-directional signal) during that time period. Route 81 Radio are the current owners of WCDL. The station flipped radio formats from Adult Standards to a Spanish radio format in August 2007 [1] branded as "Caliente (Hot) 1440" to serve the region's growing Hispanic population[2]. The Federal Communications Commission considers WCDL a Class D AM broadcast station.
