Also, since this translator was authorized under the AM revitalization program it must carry WFLL for a minimum of 4 years before a change in the primary station can be allowed. Soooo, if Zoo really really wants this translator they'll need to buy/lease WFLL too. Ha! Revolution 1400, anyone?

    What's odd is this application was granted on Feb. 7, 2017 but its' shown as having expired on 12/24/16.

    They seem to have $$. it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibilities that they would lease 1400/W228DO . I can't imagine anyone really wanting that station.

    And they would move "BV" to the top of the tower with the "BD and "DU" and go omni.

    I don't know what to make of this. Maybe he has no intention of operating it or could there be technical issues? Maybe it will stay silent until a buyer is found?

    I'm starting to question the relevance of AM radio in 2017. It would seem that the party has moved on....

    These days even the full power AM's are looking for translators or full power under performing FM stations to put their AM program on.

    Back when WFLL was running the country music format in 2011 they were on the skirt of the tower that was next to the WFLL tower that went down in the hurricane. The signal at night in Hollywood at 1KW was very good, better than it was in the old days.

    Sounded pretty good from a processing standpoint too. Even on car stereo it had a rich sound to it and on a wide band receiver it really popped. Not bad for an AM.
