I just happened upon this station about 2 months ago and I have been listening to it during the day. It goes off the air after about 6PM. It has been playing a good mix of music and no commercials, announcements (except the time and temperature) or anything else. Then, day before yesterday, the station was "stuck" and the same song kept playing over and over again all day! I tried to look up the number and the number on the internet was disconnected. Today they are back to playing the pretty decent mix of music they were playing. I wonder what is going on with that station and how they make any money with no commercials. Maybe they don't which is why their phones are off!

It's probably some kids in their parents garage taking over the air waves!

No - it is actually a station that is registered to Smyrna where I live. It used to be a Spanish station located in the Belmont Shopping Plaza which was demolished last month. Its tower was in the back of the shopping center (that was demolished too). It was off the air after that and then, as I drove by the vacant lot that used to be the shopping centre, I thought about the station and tuned to 1550 and heard a good mix of music- everything from Bachman Turner Overdrive to old doo wop. So I have been listening but I never tried to call until it got "stuck" the other day. I wonder if anybody works there or what happened to the studio and tower. They must have moved it somewhere. But they have no phone I guess. Weird.
BTW me and my brother put an FM station on the air years ago. We had a 25 watt mono transmitter and I climbed up a tall tree and put the antenna in it!

@ KevK & MAniacTHW -As of March 24, 2016 it is still cranking "a good mix of oldies" and seems to be doing fairly well. It's still on with very low transmitter wattage, but it's coming in here in Woodstock. I'm listening to it through my SDR(Software Defined Radio) with an HF (High Frequency) Up-converter, and a 60ft. longwire antenna. The mix of music they have is decent.

Here's what I could find on the station. Actually, it is kicking out 50K watts during the day time with a directional antenna that covers two paths, and covers a pretty significant area. Nighttime is limited to 16 watts. It used to be called La Familia..., and is now called Diva 1550. They have 4 towers for daytime broadcasting and 1 tower for nighttime.

Owners: Intelli LLC

Station Address:
2460 Atlanta Road
Smyrna, GA 30080
