    106.9 Tower

    I usually pass the WKVP tower on 130 a few times a week and it's always the most barest tower I've ever seen except for the four bay on the top. Today I noticed a new two bay antenna right below the four bay which is odd for this tower that never has anything on it. Is there an application for a new FM in the area?

    So that explains why they were off air for a few hours today! I wonder if it has anything to do with WHAT-AM or some other new LPFM?

    Why would they be off the air? Do they still have the backup in Center City that Merlin built for WWIQ that was supposed to be the primary transmitter on One Liberty Place right below WMMR?

    Unless WURD is going to move there instead of the high rise apartment building off city line avenue, maybe Cat Country 96.1 complained about the permit. But that would take them out of the area of the listeners they serve.
