    Is Chico above or below the Zone II/Zone IA line? Big difference between “full power” when it’s only 50 kW vs. 100 kW.

    It’s only 50kw… the breakout divide is somewhere between Redding and Chico…

    Back when the original Chico KPAY-FM CP app was filed for they tried to claim Class C status since the transmitter was just into that region. FCC didn’t buy it. City of License not transmitter location.

    I think the borderline between ZoneII/ZoneIA line is Los Molinos and Corning California. Precisely, Exit 636 Gyle Road is the divide line. As KMXI, it’s still below the 40th parallel lines. I don’t think because of COL is the issue, if you look at Louisville, KY majority of their FM’s COL is Louisville, KY or along Kentucky, but since their transmitter is located in Indiana. Their radio stations are Class B/B1 instead of Class C2/C3.

    Way back when they did the application FCC didn’t rule that way.
