1510 is now WUFC

WUCS Windsor Locks/Hartford identifies as Ultimate Connecticut Sports at the top of the hour. UFC=Ultimate Fan Channel? 
UConn sports would have been a nice "get" for WUCS, but UConn seems happy to be on the 1080 blowtorch, elderly demographics and all. A move to 97.9 would be problematic, anyway, as the station's antenna pattern is hemmed in severely by 97.9 in New York City, 98.1 in Providence, 97.7 in Norwich and even 97.5 in Norwalk. It doesn't get down to New Haven or out west to Waterbury very well, if at all -- that's a lot of UConn alums and fans to be cutting off. I'd imagine the ad agencies will get their way and CBS Radio will have to push WTIC(AM) onto FM to keep the station billing the way the suits want to see it billing, but right now it's hard to imagine where that might be, with WRCH, WZMX and WTIC-FM all doing well.
