Contraversial case would move an FM station from a rual Arizona town to the Tucson metropolitan area using the name of an Air Force base and using an FCC loophole.
REC has filed comments today in opposition to a allotment counterproposal that would have moved a rural FM station directly into the Tucson metropolitan radio market.
The proposal was made by the owner of KWCX in Willcox, Arizona. The proposal would have changed the city of license of KWCX from Willcox (pop. 3733) to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, just adjacent to the city limits of Tucson (pop. 486,699).
