Potential Grants show which applicants will likely be granted from this group including those who change to other channels during the window.  Applicants who will be granted on their original channel are shown in bold. Applications that have been granted by the FCC are in BLUE. MX groups where the final result can be projected are in GREEN.

The following abbreviations are used: P4R=Petition for Reconsideration, IO=Informal Objection, PTD=Petition to Deny.  Also, we are including IOs that were filed prior to the MX window. FCC rules permit IOs to be filed at any time (this is different than PTDs) but they will not be entertained until after the application is accepted for filing.

FINAL

Luz Vida Para La Familia tried changing to 96.7 but was dismissed for short-spacing to K267AF.  Xerocraft unsuccessfully moves to 100.7 and returns to the group. (7/15) Xerocraft moves to 100.1 and becomes singleton-accepted for filing. (8/5) Luz Vida Para La Familia filed for reconsideration requesting reinstatement on original channel. May file time share. This channel has two other 5-point applicants. (10/6) Pascua Yaqui (Hector Youtsey) moves north and is still MX. (10/7) Pascua Yaqui moves to 100.7 and is now singleton.  This results in StopAbortion.org being the tentative winner of this channel however there is still a PTD for Luz still pending. (11/25) FCC denies Luz P4R. In this case, they claimed that because the nunc pro tunc amendment after dismissal specified the original channel, it was now MX with the other applicants thus making the applicant ineligible for any more amendments.  This is an unusual outcome because in the past, the FCC would apply 73.870(c) to any suicide amendments.  We are suspecting that the Marconi Broadcasting Foundation case in Rhode Island.  We are still looking into this on how suicide amendments like Luz and Marconi will be handled going foward. (12/29) Luz files Application for Review. (5/8) Luz withdraws their AFR.

(3/11) Both La Maestra and Postive Hope filed minor moves staying on 101.1 to become more than 24km apart to make both applicants singleton.  [Ed:] Positive Hope's amendment has us scratching our head slightly because while while the ASRN on their application is correct, they left the old coordinates on the application.  The FCC did correct it on our side and it should show in our systems correctly.  - La Maestra Family Clinic

FINAL

 

(12/2/13) Cathedral de Alabanza, IO by REC (Cesar Guel). (7/29)G Final Cut (a 4-point applicant) has moved to Carson and filed for 99.1 making them singleton. (8/7) Glendale Humane Society and Long Beach TV has filed 10 petitions to deny. Against Future Roots, Craft and Folk Art Museum, Eagle Rock, Echo Park Film, Machine Project and Materials and Applications for point stacking and site assurance issues; also against Future Roots for a non-officer signing the application; also against Craft & Folk for a site not suitable for broadcasting; also against Eagle Rock for not authroizing the application (includes e-mail from officer); against Iglesias de Restauracion Fillal South Bay for second adjacent interference; against Ballet Folklorico Ollin for zoning issues involving using residence for main studio and tower height in a residential area; against Emperor's Circle of Shen Yun for second adjacent interference and against Boyle Heights Arts Conservatory for second adjacent interference and radio frequency radiation issues. (8/7) REC files IO against Los Angeles Academy of Arts of Enterprise for lack of parties to application and a non-officer signing the application. (8/22) Future Roots [also representing the rest of the "Westside 6" applicants, Craft & Folk, Materials & Applications, Machine Project, Eagle Rock and Echo Park requested an extension of time by serving REC.  This pleading is not yet in CDBS as of 8/27. (8/27) Glendale and Long Beach on behalf of the 101.5 MegaGroup files an opposition to the motion to extend time due to no valid reason for justifying an extension as well as untimely filing. (9/3) Ballet files opposition to Glendale/LBTV's PTD stating that zoning can not be an issue at the application phase. (9/3) Boyle Heights files an opposition and an amendment to change antenna heights to address the Glendale/LBTV PTD. (9/9) Future Roots representing the Westside 6 files another motion for extension of time. (9/16) Future Roots, et al is requesting more time to file their response to the MegaGroup PTD. (9/26) Joint opposition to Glendale/LBTV PTD filed by Future Roots, Craft & Folk, Materials & Applications, Machine Project and Echo Park (note that Eagle Rock did not participate in the opposition). (10/7) 5 of the Westside 6 applicants Future Roots, Craft and Folk, Machine, Echo Park and Materials filed a time share agreement for 25 points. NHMC, Boyle Heights, Prism Church, LA Academy of Arts and Enterprise, Shen Yun, Ballet Folklorico Ollin and Catalyst file a time share agreement for 35 points.  We do note though that of those groups, only Shen Yun and Boyle Heights' applications are visible.  We believe this is as a result of confusion in the community over the deadline.  Some are saying it was 11:59PM on 10/7 while others are saying 6:00PM on 10/8.  REC is requesting clarification from the FCC.  We also note that while not yet in CDBS, the MegaGroup applicants Historic LA Business Improvement District, Glendale Humane Society, Edgewood High School, Long Beach Community TV and The Church in Anaheim reached a time share agreement for 25 points.  Church in Anaheim has also changed their location. This group is going to be an ongoing situation.  Stay tuned for updates. (10/8) IO filed by Monsoor Sabbagh against Catalyst. (10/9) REC filed an IO against Westside 5 applicants due to simultaneous operation on time share agreement. REC also filed an IO against NHMC applicants due to failure to prosecute (only 2 of the 7 applicatons were amended), most applicants are proposing less than 8 hours of local programming per day without any disclosure of how such an operation would serve the public interest and also for a minor case of simultaneous operation. (10/10) In response to REC's IO, NHMC, Ballet Ollin and Catalyst file an amendment referring to the Boyle Heights application as the "lead application" and referring to the time share agreement posted in there. (10/14) Milken Community Schools requested dismissal. They were not in any of the three factions. (10/16) Prism Church files an amendment referring to Boyle Heights as the "lead application". (10/17) City of Industry requested dismissal. This moves Edgewood to the lead applicant in the group. (10/17) Shen Yun files opposition to PTD in the form of an amendment to the application.  The amendment makes no technical changes. (10/20) FCC clarified that due to confusion over the Public Notice, time share agreements filed on 10/8 will be considered as timely. This means that the MegaGroup time share agreement is timely filed. They also clarified that time share agreements that were timely filed on at least one application will apply for all applications.  REC filed supplement to IO against the NHMC timeshare to withdraw the motion of failure to prosecute but still maintains that the time share agreement proposes simultaneous operation and does not give a public interest showing for proponents operating less than 8-hours a day for the purpose of the pledge. (10/27) Shen Yun amended to specify a new location to address the GHS/LBTV PTD. (10/27) NHMC, Ballet, Catalyst, Shen Yun, Boyle Heights and Prism jointly file an opposition to REC's IO. (11/10) Westside 5 files opposition to REC and amends all of their applications to "correct" their time share agreement to address REC's determination that they timely filed an agreement that included simultaneous operation. (11/12) Shen Yun makes another move.  (11/26) Boyle files opposition to a P4R supposedly filed by Future Roots. It's possible that it has been hand filed and therefore does not immediately show in the application docket.  The opposition captions all 7 of the NHMC applicants.  According to the opposition, Future Roots filed a P4R against the FCC's decision to allow the extension of the filing deadline and the decision that a time sharing agreement is filed as an amendment on one, it's timely prosecuted for all. Speaking for the NHMC, attorney Michael Couzens states that Future Roots can't have it both ways referring to Westside 5's 11/10 amendment to correct their time share agreement in response from REC's IO.  (12/5) Catalyst files opposition to IO filed by Monsoor Sabbagh. (1/12) Glendale Humane Society voluntarily dismisses. (1/19) REC files IO against Shen Yun stating that one of Shen Yun's amendments created a new application conflict. [Ed:] Shen Yun had filed multiple amendments since the LBTV PTD was filed stating that the Flair Dr. location does not protect 2nd adjacent. (1/21) REC files IO against NHMC stating 2nd adjacent interference due to penetration of office building, tower on roof of building violates zoning code and application not signed by a designated officer. (2/26) One Source dismissed due to no longer being incorporated. (4/29) NHMC amends their application in response to REC's IO in order to address the allegation of second adjacent channel interference as well as adding the signatory of the application to the board.  (7/27) Materials & Applications file an amendment to move north 5.9 km claiming that it would allow them to break from the MX from Ballet Folklorico Ollin. (7/28) Ballet files amendment to move 2km to the west.  This does break the MX with M&A but it is still MX with other Westside 5 applicants.  Could we be seeing some progress in this group? (7/28) M&A requested their amendment returned.  Chances are they will refile. (7/28) REC files IO against Ballet's amended location.  Proposed location does not take into consideration the 405 freeway within overlap zone at a higher elevation. Even with a 3-bay antenna, interference would still reach the traffic lanes. (9/24) LBTV and former Glendale Humane Society withdraw all of their PTDs. (9/29) REC withdraws all IOs against NHMC, Prism Church, Boyle Heights and Catalyst as well as the IO against Future Roots, Craft & Folk, M&A, Machine and Echo Park related to their time share proposal.  REC files IOs against Future Roots, Craft & Folk, M&A, Machine and Echo Park to continue to issues in regards to possible collusion and against Iglesia Filial due to second adjacent channel interfer ence.  REC is maintaining IOs against Ballet, LAAAE and Shen Yun. (9/29) Monsour Sabbagh withdraws IO against Catalyst. (10/5) Eagle Rock Community Cultural Association requests dismissal. (10/7) REC withdraws all remaining Informal Objections in an effort to work towards a settlement solution for this group. (12/17) LBTV has reached a time share agreement with G Final Cut (who had moved to 99.1).  Under this time share LBTV would move to 99.1.  Craft & Folk has filed a move. Requested a waiver of the minor move rule. It also indicates that Ballet will also file another minor move. The new location for Craft & Folk appears to be further west. (12/20) G-Final and Long Beach TV file an amendments that are doing nothing.  It is our belief these two applicants will co-locate at the proposed LBTV site.  Ballet moves location to the Foothill Division police station parking garage (ed: site assurance?). (12/21) Edgewood files amendment stating that they are part of an overall agreement that will be coming. No other changes.  Similar to amendments filed by LBTV. (12/23) FCC accepts time share agreement btween G-Final and LBTV and grants LBTV, the first 5-pointer in MX27 to get a grant.  (4/25/16) Future Roots, Echo Park and Machine Project move to 99.1 and join Reach For The Top (MX Group #40) in a 4-way time share agreement. CAFAM becomes singleton. Catedral de Alabanza dismissed, non-T/S. Filial reaches a time share agreement with San Pedro HCR and moves to 97.5.  (REC has agreed to withdraw the IO against San Pedro HCR) Oriental Cultural Center has requested a move to Ontario and remains on 101.5.  M&A moves to 96.7 and time shares with granted Cinefamily (MX Group #61). (4/27) Church in Anaheim and G-Final Cut agree to time share in Anaheim.  This now means that LBTV will be full-time on 99.1. (4/28) Revised time share agreement involving NHMC, Prism, Edgewood, Shen Yun, LAAAE, BFO, Boyle Heights and Catalyst.  We do note that BFO is already singleton and does not need to be in the agreement.  Catalyst will eventually be singleton when Filial's time share request with San Pedro HCR is granted.  (5/16) City of Los Angeles filed a post-grant IO against BFO stating that proposed antenna is on tower that belongs to the city at the LAPD Foothill Division station and site assurance was never secured.

(8/8) LC Media, licensee of co-channel station KQIE Redlands and Point Four, licensee of KCAQ Oxnard filed PTD against entire group claiming the 104.7 LPFMs will cause harmful interference to KQIE and KCAQ even in areas outside those stations respective service contours.  Claims the LCRA adds an additional restriction that a LPFM on a waiver must cause no interference to co- and first-adjacent despite meeting 73.807 spacing.  EMF made a similar argument in Group #58. 14 years ago during the original LPFM window, KCAQ also filed against LPFMs on 104.7 that filed at the time. (8/28) Latino Center and Centro Cultural file opposition to KQIE/KCAQ in part stating that the intention of the LCRA was not to add a new regime to add additional protections to co-channel stations up and above 73.807.

(8/20) LC Media/Point Four files AFR seeking review of the Audio Division interpretation that the "any radio service" language in the LCRA related to second adjacent channel waivers means any radio service on any channel, not just on second adjacent channels.  (8/26) Depsite Latino and Centro being granted already, Calvary files a notice of partial settlement with Latino and Centro to state that Calvary had been paid $2,000 in connection with no further action being taken on their application.

Against Outsound for misrepresentation of parties, use of a residence for main studio and localism. Against SF Public Press claiming multiple interests.(8/12) SF Indiefest also filed PTD against Outsound over the use of a residence as a main studio. SF Indiefest also files a PTD against against SF Public Press second adjacent waiver request. The interference contour reaches a freeway overpass at a higher level. (8/15) Loren Dobson files IO SF Community Radio questioning localism and alleging gamesmanship. (8/19) Outsound and SF Public Press seperately file oppositions to SF Cmty R.'s PTD. (8/21) Outsound files opposition to SF Indefest's PTD. (8/22) SFPP files opposition to SF Indefest's PTD. (8/28) SF Cmty R. files reply to Outsound. (8/28) SF Public Press files reply to SF Cmty R. (9/29) SF Public Press files engineering amendment to address SF Indefest's PTD. (10/7) SF Indiefest and SF Cmty R. reached a time share agreement to aggregate 10 of 20 possible points. SF Public Press and Outsound file their own 10 point time share agreement. This has resulted in a tie. The top-3 organizations are SF Indiefest, Outsound and SF Public Press.  There are objections against all applications except SF Indiefest.  This group will be held up for awhile while the FCC works through the objections. (10/8) FCC denies SF Indefest's amendment. (10/17) SF Cmty R. files amendment showing their time share agreement with SF Indefest. (11/18) Independent Arts and Media (which was dismissed 12/16/13 for an inconsistent application e.g. board member on more than one LPFM application) has filed an IO against SF Indiefest claiming one party to the application was previously involved in unlicened operations. (3/30/15) SF Public Press files supplement to IO alleging that Jeff Ross at SF Indiefest "has engaged in unlicesed broadcasting as a music DJ at Radio Valencia." and includes many different articles and social media postings. [Ed: As we have seen with the recent FCC decisions where unlicesed radio has come into play, the FCC only regards social media, internet posts and newpaper reports as only heresay.  An FCC field notice (NOUO) and/or a police arrest report (for Florida stations) goes much farther.  Those claiming unlicensed operation will need more to go on than just newspapers and the Internet. ] (4/10) Indiefest files oppositions stating that there is a lack of standard of proof in the allegation of unlicensed operations using recent LPFM decisions as basis for the argument. (12/11) SF Cmty R. files opposition to Loren Dobson's IO filed on 8/15/2014.  (3/4/16) FCC sends Letter of Inquiry to SF Indiefest to address allegations of radio piracy. (6/24/16) FCC dismisses SF Indiefest for failing to cooperate in the investigation of radio piracy (Indiefest invoked the 5th amendment).  Outsound downgraded from 5 to 3 points for using a "placeholder" address for their main studio.  SF Cmty R. and SF Public Press delcared tentative selectees and are now being given opportunity to reach a timeshare else group will go involuntary. (7/26) FCC grants time share agreement of SFCR and SFPP.  Outsound dismissed, non T/S. (8/29) Outsound amends nunc pro tunc to relocate to Pacifica on 102.5 citing MX27.  (8/29) FCC denies amendment.

FINAL

(10/1) Redwood Justice Fund and Santa Rosa Community Media Access Center reach a time share agreement and aggregate 10 of the 20 possible points. (10/8) Roman Catholic and Faith Christian Fellowship reach a time share agreement and aggregate 10 of 20. This has resulted in a tie.  There are no objections.  Pending Commission review, the top-3 applicants are Roman Catholic, Redwood Justice and Santa Rosa Community in involuntary timesharing. INVOLUNTARY TIME SHARE PENDING FCC DECISION. (12/15) Faith Christian Fellowship of Sonoma County dismissed, not in the top-3. (1/15) The FCC dismisses Roman Catholic because they regard them as only having 5 points since Faith Christian was dismissed for not being in the top-3 leaving Redwood and Santa Rosa's 10 point proposal standing. [Ed:] This was not how we were told this was going to work.  Our impression of how the system was going to work was that because both Roman & Faith and Redwood & Community both came up with 10 point proposals, it would be declared a 10 to 10 tie and the top-3 applicants will win.  - Redwood Justice Fund*

(10/6) Strategic International Ministries and Reach For The Top reach an aggregation agreement for a combined 10 points. Strategic moves to a new location within Simi Valley and specifies a directional antenna to address second adjacent channel. (10/6) Peace and Dignity Project makes a move to space from Strategic's old site but is still short spaced to Strategic's new site.

We do note that Peace & Dignity also filed a P4R. Even if the FCC was to reinstate Fuente and P&D and consider them their own MX group, P&D would win on points. (11/24) LA Social Justice filed an amendment and opposition to the KLVE/KWVE PTDs stating that the original coordintes were in error and offer new coordinates that are not located on City of LA property. (12/5) KWVE files reply to LA Social Justice's opposition. (12/18) FCC denies P4Rs filed by Peace & Dignity and by Fuente de Vida.  In denying P&D, they stated that an amendment can not "create a new conflict". [Ed: It didn't. The conflict was already there. This is no different than a station choosing a new site but still MX.] In Fuente, the FCC stated that they will not give "secondary" grants in MX groups. [Ed: This is very bad for daisy chain groups like 40 and 27.  This is bad policy.] (1/13) FCC dismisses LA Social Justice based on site assurance concerns. (2/12) LASJ files P4R.

(7/17) FCC denies Malibu's AFR on procedural grounds (because it raises new arguments) but even if it was accepted the FCC would have still denied it because the corproation was not recognized by the state until one month after filing the applicaiton. (6/23/16) FCC determines that Audio Division errored when stating that LASJ did not have site assurance.  They had thought that the public land site that was entered in error was the original application site when in fact the original site was on Pierce College where LASJ did have site assurance.  FCC grants LASJ's AFR and application.

For section VI, question 1, channel 249 is desired although 229 is in blank. CDBS would not accept 249."  The channel change, which includes a move to the Clairemont Mesa area would otherwise make them singleton.  We are unsure if the FCC will accept this change. (10/14) FCC denies Hi Neighbor's amendment. (1/12) FCC determined that San Diego Catholic Radio did have site assurance.  Art Pulse was an inactive corporation at the time of filing and therefore will be dismissed.  Hi Neighbor dismissed, non-T/S.

This group has a dismissed application for San Jose Food Not Bombs that is currently pending a Petition for Reconsideration.  If the P4R is not upheld, this could create two groups with Foundation for a Beautiful Life and non-point leader South Bay Public Radio forming one sub-group and equally-qualified Centers for Careers and Training (Manuel J.

(6/2) Foundation for a Beautiful Life, IO by South Bay Public Radio citing 2nd adjacent channel overlap issues.   (10/9) While there is a pending objection, we don't see why Centers for Careers and Training and San Jose Peace and Justice can't be done as involutary as their own 10 point group. (11/10) FCC sends a letter to Foundation, Centers for Careers and SJ Peace to submit their time slot choices.  Due within 30 days. They also have an opportunity to reach a universal settlement. REC shows that this MX Group should be split.

(8/8) Educational Media Foundation, licensee of KYLA files PTD against entire group as a continuation of the IOs filed on 5/23 and 6/17 claiming that despite meeting 73.807 the stations cause contour overlap with KYLA due to LA area terrain.  REC defended the group stating that 73.209 applies in this case and that due to actual terrain, none of the stations would cause interference to KYLA. In previous filings EMF wanted a declaratory ruling of whether the LCRA puts 2nd adj waiver stations on a higher standard in respect to co- and first-adjacent.  Similar arguments were made in the 8/8 PTD filed in Orange County group #34. Prometheus has also opposed any declaratory ruling.(8/28) Razorcake files opposition to EMF in part stating that the intention of the LCRA was not to add a new regime to add additional protections to co-channel stations up and above 73.807.

(2/25) A Home For Everyone dismissed due to no longer being recognized as a corporation. (3/2) FCC grants Home for Everyone's PTD and dismisses Ronald R. Erickson Ministries due to Erickson providing information about being an unincorporated association and this information did not come from a  local attorney. (3/31) Home For Everyone (via Dan Alpert) files P4R stating that even though the corporation's status had lapsed, Oregon law allows for retroactive recognition.  A statement from a licensed attorney in Oregon was provided. [Ed:] Retroactive corporate status is also being argued in Earth-on-the-Air in MX Group #391. (4/1) Ronald R. Erickson files P4R claiming they are unincorporated and includes an attorney letter. (4/10) Home For Everyone files opposition to Erickson's P4R. (7/13) FCC dismisses Erickson's P4R on procedural grounds.  The FCC states that there is no evidence that Erickson operated an unincorporated association at the time of filing. (11/1) A Home For Everyone (along with several other Robert Lund applications) filed an amendment by order of the Media Bureau to put on the record and to address issues raised by the Oregon Department of Justice, Civil Enforcement Division.  In their letter, they state that while a non-profit organization can be started in Oregon with only one person it needs to be extended to a board of at least 3 persons. This was never done.  The letter goes on to demonstrate the many commonalities among all of the Lund applications including family members and tenants at a single trailer park filing corporation papers to establish stations.  One party did not even know they had applied for an LPFM station.  The organizations attmped to change to religious organizations which may be only operated by one person but since the conversion of a non-profit to a religious organization a majority vote (2 out of 3 for a fully qualified non-profit), they can not change.  The Lund applicants also include afidavits from the various organization representatives.

Portland Russian Media Center, PTD filed by Reed Institute claiming no site assurance. (8/21) Portland Russian Media Center files oppositions to Reed Institute stating that their claim of lack of site assurance was based on using the wrong datum (NAD83 instead of NAD27) and against PSU's PTD stating at the time of the window, PSU was a part of the Oregon State University system and therefore had attributable interests and therefore not eligible for the diversity point. (8/27) Reed withdraws their PTD against Portland Russian. (9/3) Portland State University replies to PRMC's PTD.

(1/16) PRMC files reply to Reed. (3/26) FCC dismisses Portland State University as a non-T/S. In this case, PSU was denied their diversity point because of attributable interests with the University of Oregon system.  The FCC determined that regardless of legislation that was not in effect at the time of the filing window, PSU was still in the Oregon University system at the end of the window and therefore not eligible for the point.  FCC also denied the PTD filed against Reed by PRMC stating that while the coordinates may have been incorrect (NAD83 v. NAD27), there was other supporting documentation that supported the correct location. (This policy has changed for future filings, the FCC will go by tech box coordinates only). As a result, Reed and PRMC are going to involuntary. (4/24) Reed and PRMC reach a voluntary time share.

Also, the applicant will seek an STA to operate on 94.7 if K237FE is still licensed on 95.3 when the applicant is ready to begin operation of its LPFM."  The FCC would likely reject such an STA since there is already a granted CP for K237FE to move to 94.7. (2/25) Blue Stone Media Activists dismissed due to no longer being recognized as a corporation. (4/6) Blue Stone files P4R, see A Home For Everyone in Group #280 for details. (12/18) FCC denies Lund P4R.

Non-leading applicant Ukrainian Church of Evangelical Faith changed to 100.3 and is now singleton. KMIH.ORG Radio Booster Club unsuccessfully changes to 100.3 and is returned to the group. (7/16) KMIH.ORG tries again for 100.3 but is denied.  Hollow Earth has already been accepted for filing on 100.3. (8/8) Sam-Sno filed a Petition to Deny (written as an informal objection) with a recommendation that Bainbridge Arts and Sustainable Bainbridge propose operation on 101.9 so KMIH.ORG and SPACE can time share on 101.1 as 101.9 is not available in Seattle. (8/18) Iglesia Sanando Las Heridas changed to 92.9 to make them singleton. This also creates a daisy chain effect as it frees up City of Kent and makes them a singleton also. (8/21) Since Kent broke away from the daisy chain, the FCC granted them therefore they can no longer aggregate with the Seattle or Bainbridge applicants. (9/8) Bainbridge Arts voluntarily dismisses application. (9/10) Sustainable Bainbridge also voluntarily dismisses. This leaves only two applicants left, KMIH.org Boosters and SPACE. (9/22) KQMV files PTD against Iglesia Sanando claiming predicted second adjacent channel interference. (10/8) SPACE and KMIH.ORG reach a universal time share agreement. (4/9) Iglesia Sanando Las Heridas dismissed due to lapse in corporate status. (5/6) Iglesia Sanando files P4R stating that corporate status has been restored and is retroactive.

Radio Vida N Life changed to 94.1 and is now second-adjacent channel short spaced to CJJR-FM, Vancouver, BC.  Applicant filed a statement of “border compliance” and requested reduced power (80 watts) to make a showing that the 34 dBu contour of the LPFM does not cross into Canada. Per the letter of 73.807, LPFM stations are required to protect second-adjacent channel Canadian stations and it has never been suggested that a second-adjacent channel waiver can be used.  This will be an interesting application to watch.

(8/5) Northwest files P4R stating 73.870(c) applies only during the window. Also uses contour overlap to show lack of interference with KMIH. (12/10) Northwest Leadership Foundation has been reinstated (on 88.9) but not yet granted. (1/5) Robert Casserd files IO against Northwest stating that proposed facility is short spaced to KMIH, a super-powered class-D station which per the rules, needs to be treated as a Class-A. (1/13) Northwest changes to 92.9 to address KMIH short spacing. They are singleton.
