    Looks like Q-Broadcasting filed to move the station to their WAMA-AM site while the assignment is going through. Not a bad deal now that I look at it for an AM, FM Translator, and zero site rent on the AM by moving it to their own site.

    Interesting they sold for the quoted price in the APA. The sellers were originally asking for A LOT more than what they sold if for. The price was probably discounted because the TL was in all probability not part of the sale.

    It looks like the translator was part of the sale according to the APA. It's listed in Appendix E as one of the Authorizations being transferred.

    According to the Form 345 for the translator, it also has a pending Assignment of License to Q-Broadcasting, and states both AM and translator assignments are being filed simultaneously.

    Whats interesting is they have applied for 1110kHz with 10kw day and 5.5kw Critical Hours with no night operation which means the translator will have to sign off at night too unless they change the primary station. It seems they are forgoing the CP to move to 1100 with some low night power.

    Translators, even if the "translated" station is a daytimer, can operate 24/7. This is one of the reasons why the AM Revitalization plan has been so successful.

    Class D AM Stations are allowed to originate programming at night, and can continue to run even when the AM goes off the air in the evenings.

    I was referring to the the Transmitter/Tower Location as TL which is quite valuable; upwards towards $3 million. Sorry if I confused you into thinking I was referring to the translator.

    Thanks for the clarification

    Of course the real estate wasn't included. However, if you're an existing operator with your own site and can diplex, as is the case here, the site really doesn't matter.

    Frank, It was sold with a translator to the owner of 1550 and they have filed for a CP to diplex. 1110 has benn off the air since Dec. 31, 2016. Ed

    The WTIS deal at $175,000 now looks like a steal when you consider what the new owner did to improve the AM and Translator. They were granted a CP to diplex with WAMA at their own site, so they don't have to pay any rent. Top that off with a CP on top of the Bank Of America Building at 600 Feet for the translator.

    Not a bad sequence of moves for Q-Broadcasting. They got 2 AM stations in Market #19 with decent sized translators for around $800,000 combined.
