Thread: 1500 to Levine

    1500 to Levine

    The Levine-Schwab partnership gets 1500 Culver City at the am auction of may 6th for $409,000. Royce International stopped bidding at $372,000. I am thinking construction might be pretty swift with a diplex from the 1260 site. It would make for a good brokered format facility with coverage similar to KTYM (no OC or SG Valley coverage)

    Looking at the pattern plot, it looks like another station that will be broadcasting to the fishes.

    For a while in the 1980s, the 1500 frequency was KRCK. The station went off the air in 1986 and Royce Broadcasting was never able to get it back on the air. There were plans to erect a transmitter tower in the Big Tujunga Wash but the existence of a federally endangered plant species, the slender-horned spineflower (dodecahema leptoceras), put an end to those plans. The last I heard, the proposed station would resurrect the KIEV call letters that were given up when 870 became KRLA. (And the legendary KRLA call letters going to a talk station is a sacrilege! But I digress.) I wonder if Saul Levine will install an adult standards format when 1500 finally gets on the air.

    K.M. Richards---who I can rightfully refer to as "the smart guy"---has clarified that the "Levine" in the Levine/Schwab partnership is not Saul Levine. He also says that the new station at 1500 will diplex from KLAC's site.

    So it's not Saul Levine? That means there's a chance of it not running HD! Whew!

    Am 1500

    They have to file a full application FCC Form 301 prior to midnight ET on July 21, 2014
    Each winning bidder must submit electronically a properly completed long form application (FCC Form 301
    Application for Construction Permit for Commercial Broadcast Station), including all required exhibits, for
    each construction permit for which it was the winning bidder in Auction 84.
    An applicant that fails to submit the required long form application before the specified
    deadline and fails to establish good cause for any late - filed submission shall be deemed to have defaulted
    and shall be subject to the payments set forth in section 1 .2104(g) of the Commission’s rules.

    The long-form applications must be filed electronically through the Media Bureau’s Consolidated Database System (CDBS) online

    Once this is done we will know the identities of the applicant.

    Nope.

    Compare the tower latitude/longitude locations:

    KWKW: 34° 01' 10.00" N Latitude 118° 20' 44.00" W Longitude
    http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/am...=0&facid=38454

    KLAC: 34° 04' 11.00" N Latitude 118° 11' 36.00" W Longitude
    http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/am...=0&facid=59958

    Schwab/Levine application: 34° 04' 11.00" N Latitude 118° 11' 36.00" W Longitude
    http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/am...0&facid=161348

    KWKW is farther east than the location specified for the new station but KLAC is an exact match.

    KLAC makes a lot more sense, as it is to the western side of the LA Basin and the old KFAC site is on the West Side not far from the KABC site. Since 1500 has to protect, among other things, 1510 in Ontario, the only way to cover LA is to get as close to Ontario as possible and shoot all the power to the west. 1330 would not work well. Plus, 1330 and 1500 are a bit harder to duplex well while maintaining a broadband antenna system for KWKW... and I don't think the station can be engineered for just two towers.
