The above photo came from longtime WOKE announcer Wally Momeier who says, "This has to be one of the last photos of WOKE’s control room on Market Street in downtown Charleston. This is approximately what was behind the glass as seen in the WHAN photos. By now, Walt Mouring's Gates Board had been replaced by an RCA model installed by Gordon Knight.

"I do not remember when WOKE moved from Market Street. I may have been with Harry for 5 years or so before he decided to build [West Ashley]. I do remember the move. I generally cut loose, even while on the air. Bruce Roberts transported and installed I think, Gordon Knight installed as well. I did not even see the new joint until it was on the air the next day.

"Gordon's last job of the move: To find out why we kept getting VSWR bumps when 're-signing on.' Seems he found several splices in the main audio line to the new Harris [transmitter] and therefore broken shields. RF from the new 'super high quality' 15khz Bell Loop was the cause. For years WOKE had been on a 5khz feed line from the downtown studios. I still use 15khz lines. Today we call 'em full T-1's and the encoder/decoder pair runs around $13,000."
