    WMIV-LP Moved

    Does anyone know what happened?
    Shake 108 on 107.9 became Shake 94 on 94.3
    and moved three miles west with a much lower antenna.

    I see an application for the change to 94.3 but no construction permit.

    Are they legally allowed to setup shop on a new frequency from a new location before the construction permit is even granted? Is there some loophole I'm not familiar with?

    These guys have been dinged by the FCC in the past for operating the station from an unauthorized location. I don't know if they ended up getting fined but they did get a shutdown order from the Commission. Wonder if that will be taken into account while the FCC considers this application.

    Let's hope they're not dumb enough to do that again! If so, perhaps they should be caught and perhaps lose their license.

    No you cannot operate on a new channel or at a new site before the FCC grants the construction permit.

    That's right and I know a station that did just that (open up shop at the spot they applied for but hadn't received a Construction Permit). Federal Marshals paid them a visit and convinced this to pull the plug. I hear they are a very persuasive bunch.
