    Entravision loses 107.3 battle

    Entravision has lost out in its bid to stop a radio station in northwestern Maricopa County from going forward.

    It wanted to halt the operation of KAZV in Aguila, a 50,000-watt station on 107.3 transmitting halfway between Aguila and Wickenburg.

    KAZV had put on air a temporary facility in order to satisfy its CP as well as local zoning requirements with the county not just to get on air with days to go. If Entravision could get it out of the way, it sought to move KVVA to South Mountain (and the COL to Sun Lakes) and change KDVA to 106.7.

    KAZV, which now has Program Test Authority in hand, is owned by Matinee Media Corporation out of Rio Grande City, Texas.

    They're going to need the height they intended to build if they're going to have a shot at covering people and not rattlesnakes, but they've lived to fight another day.

    Reading all the crap they had to go through just to get this far underscores how difficult it is to turn one of these auction licenses into a radio station.

    Just what the Valley needs...another rimshot. At least it isn't another translator!

    In other news, Will Kemp's construction permit to upgrade his Payson FM with his namesake calls expires in a week and a half. I take it they're still running their Class C3 power.

    And the drama continues. KAZV has filed for an STA, citing the lack of a generator at its tower site and a death in the family of the engineer, to quote the application, "MATINEE DOES ANTICIPATE GETTING THE STATION BACK ON THE AIR SHORTLY, AND REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO BE SILENT IN THE INTERIM."

    We'll see if they'll get on the air soon. Bill Smith's TV station outside of Pensacola, Florida claims to be on the air, but I was unable to receive it when I was there.

    If the rimshot ends up covering the retirement communities of the northwest Valley like KSWG does, he could put MeTV Radio on there. All he would need is a satellite Internet connection at the transmitter.
