The station started out as did many college stations of its day on the AM band using the campus pipes and wires as an antenna.
In the '90s the studios and transmitter were moved to a high rise down on the north end of campus.
The studios were located in the basement of Maththe Cook B dormitory at least as early as the late sixties, perhaps earlier. In the '90s the studios were moved to the first floor of a high rise dorm on the north end of campus and a new antenna was installed at that location as well.
Two antennas formally used by WRTC remain on Mather Hall. A single bay which we believe is the original FM antenna and a two-bay FM antenna installed in the seventies (picture below).

WRTIC's second transmitter location on the Trinity campus. This 2-bay antenna atop Mather Hall was installed in the late seventies and served the station until the 90s. The hilltop location of the campus helps the WRTC signal get out quite well. 2009 photo.
