Thread: 100.3 to 105.5

Interference from another full power station seems unlikely since the closest ones on channel 262 are in Orlando and Plantation Key. If you have the occasion, try punching up 100.1 or 100.5 FM in the areas where interference is being reported and don't be surprised to find a pirate station on either one. Could also be a pirate on 100.3 as well. If Robinson is aware of someone filing for a CP and/or license on 100.3 then the FCC sure isn't!
    Turns out . . . it's not a "100.3" Robinson is in a twist over . . . . Its a translator at W223CB 92.5 / W228DO 93.5 (discussed in depth on the 1400 Going Going Gone thread because, it was intended to be a translator for 1400 WFLL).

    Why would the commission not laugh off a claim that a translator 93 could interfere with a station on 100⅓ and fine the guy for being a nuisance?
    92 would be at an IF spacing frequency below 100⅓, but waaaay to far away to be of any concern.

    Just for the heck of it I looked into what became of the move of W262AN to 105.5 and it looks as though Reach FM got it licensed as W288DD also to Tamarac back in 2015. It now carries Christian programming from Edgewater Broadcasting via WZTU 94.9 HD-2. I'm guessing Edgewater is leasing the HD signal from iHeart in order to feed W288DD along with W233AP 94.5 in Oakland Park. The programming originates from WLOG FM in Markleysburg, Pennsylvania.

    Exactly, ai4i! I agree. Robinson, who was (once) admirable in protecting his Class A station by getting rid of two translators at 100.3 is NOW being a nuisance and should be fined as result. Now it seems Robinson is just arbitrarily filing complaints for ANY translator that falls into the southern most distant and fringe coverage areas for WLML.

    I can see shutting down 100.3 W262AE and forcing it to become W284CR 104.7 FM . . . and W262AE (100.3 FM/262) on Southern Blvd. and U.S 441, 18 miles south of the Lake Park C.O.L for WLML. Even IF it was a translator at 100.1 or 100.5 . . . (too lazy to look see any translator activities on those two frequencies) or EVEN a pirate on either of those frequencies or on 100.3, I could understand the concerns.

    But we are talking about

    W223CB at 92.5
    W228DO at 93.5

    There are other translators "waaaay" closer to 100.3 . . . .

    Look at WSBR 740's (2) translators . . . both clear & audible in the North Broward/South Palm area that concerns Robinson . . . the same area Robinson references on the "Interference" page on WLML's website, that is, "Southern Palm Beach County, Delray Beach, Deerfield Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Highland Beach, and Boca Raton areas, including mobile listeners who listen on I-95 between Exit 48 [intersection with SR 794/Yamato Rd] and Exit 39 [intersection with SR 834/Sample Rd]." (NOTE, now that Robinson was successful, it seems, in knocking off the WFLL translator, that "Interference" tab/page has been deleted from the WLML website).

    W245BC 96.9 FM Lauderdale Lakes, FL (250 watts)
    W280DU 103.9 FM Boca Raton, FL (250 watts)



    Look at WPBR 1340's (4) translators. Two of which, audible in the same area . . .

    W241AX 96.1 FM Boca Raton, FL (250 watts)
    W248CK 97.5 FM Twentymile Bend, FL (99 watts)



    And WWNN 1470 has (1) translator. Again, clearly audible in the same area . . .

    W237BD 95.3 FM Boca Raton, FL (250 watts)

    96.1, 96.9, 97.5, and 103.9 are CLOSER to 100.3 that either 92.5 OR 93.5. Why is Robinson NOT concerned with those other four CLOSER frequencies, but overly concerned about WFLL 1400/Jorgensen's want of translator at 93.5 that's FURTHER AWAY from 100.3. It makes no sense. It's fishy.

    Is there bad blood between Jorgensen and Robinson? Is Robinson concerned with "competition," that Jorgenson would, with an FM translator, rebrand WFLL 1400 and make it a music station with "Classic Stanards" or "Oldies" and cutting into Robinson's Southern Palm/North Broward "audience" in WLML's "distant/fringe" coverage.

    What ever it is, it stinks. Jorgensen is breaking his back in resurrecting four dead radio stations, two ground down to less than stick value by JCR. Jorgensen is serving the public interest and being a good steward to those stations. WFLL didn't even have a tower for god sakes. NOW it does, its on WEXY's stick, and it back on the air (intermittently) . . . and Chris Muse is doing a bang up job with the old JCR property in Dallas . . . and Jorgensen is responsible for saving that long dark station.

    Now, Jorgensen has to deal with this non-sense from keeping WFLL acquiring a translator and raising from the dead and creating a local voice in Broward County. And for what, a dozen 65 plus people listening to scratchy crackling broadcast in the Southern Palm/North Broward distant/fringe area? Over some imagined or guess-amated "interference?" And that seems to be the case, as noted by this reply from Stangelove, over on the 1400 Going Going Gone thread.

On Nov. 18 ACM was granted a permit modification for channel 228 (93.5, here we go again!) however the original underlying construction permit expired on 12/24/16. ACM had requested a 6 month extension of the CP deadline on Nov. 1 but I'm not finding any correspondence that indicates whether the request was granted or denied. It could still happen yet. Stay tuned!
    As you can see WLML used the OLD emails from listeners regarding the WIDO W262AN/100.3 Tamarac translator as evidence of "likely" interference. (I can't find any correspondence indicating the request was denied or granted for that CP six-month extension on 228/93.5 either. Fingers crossed for Jorgensen! WFLL will raise from the dead!

    Yeah, I was just reading about that WLOG FM 89.1 out of Markleyburg in one of the older thread(s) in here about their little "network" of translators they have in South Florida.
