The FCC set aside commercial channels nationwide for exclusive NCE use in places where there were no noncommercial channels left. Special noncomm allocations were made for these channels, and will not be changed to commercial use.
All of these special NCE allocations were empty spots on the band when they were created in response to petitions to the FCC.
Contrast this to the commercial channels that were voluntarily made NCE at the behest of their owners for tax purposes. Those channels can be flipped back and forth at the owner’s whim, as long as the FCC approves the change.
But channels on the 92-108 band that were set aside as noncommercial by FCC edict are forevermore NCE. Or at least, unless a major political change happens in FCC policy.
“A look into FCC files shows a two-year running battle of correspondence between Bustos and the opposition – – mainly a local group who initially relayed KGHO-LP into the South Sound on 101.1 /104.1 (but recently switched their feed to cross-service KGTK-AM Olympia”
AFAIK, the KGHO-LP signal continues on 101.1 and 104.1 despite what the FCC might have been told. By telling the feds they were rebroadcasting KGTK, they were able to goose up their power at Olympia’s Capitol Peak from 10 Watts to 250 Watts as a fill-in translator for the large coverage area of KGTK. Not that anybody has noticed, of course.
Thanks for the excellent links. I’ve always loved low power radio.
No more than 3 tracks from the same album may be transmitted to the same listener within a 3 hour period (and no more than 2 of those tracks may be transmitted consecutively).
This is why my automation has been informed that most of the hits in rotation are a ‘Single’. Life’s to short to be taken in by a SoundScam.
The 60dbu of the new signal should clear both Hood River and Goldendale whereas the current one does not.
Seems like a perfect path to turning on a little on channel booster in each town. Once you have a 60 dBu contour, you’ve got a clear shot at a booster.
Fifty Watts days, 5 Watts night on a 120 foot long wire.
I heard it last night on a drive through Woodland. It was fine on the car radio.
Link is two pictures from their FCC app that explains the new operation.
Those darned ‘vandals’ will swipe anything, even a tower. Keep your eyes peeled, those things are hard to hide.
This pig don’t look so good in makeup. Gettin’ kinda old and fat.
That was fabulous Paul. What an interesting look inside of radio 42 years ago. Wow.
I remember listening to the ‘John Landecker Radio Leviathan’ on WILS in Lansing, Michigan. He did the overnight show while he was at Michigan State.
What I didn’t know was that it was his first DJ gig. He sounded way better than the usual overnight guy back then.
That’s probably because Records really is his middle name.
Gold Beach. But Jesus already has put in a bid.
