I’ve assumed that Alpha just wanted to have their own master antenna not only for KBFF’s main, but also for auxiliary facilities for KXL and KUPL (they have Aux CPs for both at the same antenna). The new master would be lower, where there is available tower space. The new antenna would also allow KBFF to add HD.
In filing its 302-FM, KBFF has stated that it will share its antenna and gives the file numbers BPH-20150116AEC and BPH-20150116AED. Neither of these numbers are on file. The form also states that neither of these stations are on the air yet.
It worked for “EE” which is the main facility but nothing for “EC” or “ED”. I’m glad you had better luck than I did, thank you Andy! It doesn’t seem very helpful to have your auxiliary on the same antenna as the main. If the whole master goes down, it’s over.
When all their “moves” are done, they will be licensed to go any which way is necessary to keep every station on the air at all times, including not only equipment failures but ongoing maintenance and tower work. The more licensed options you build in, the more redundant you are. Makes total sense to me. Without seeing a master end result plumbing diagram, it is foolish to try and second the guess the reasoning of every single move you read about in the FCC database. In other words, chill, they know what they are doing. That doesn’t include their programming.:-)
