Majic 102.5 Milwaukee Goes Dark

Majic 102.5 The Beat Magic 860 WNOV Milwaukee WNWC Life Madison

Update 1/25: While no FCC filings have been made, 860 WNOV has gone silent as well.

As a correction, 102.5 had been using the name “102.5 The Beat” recently after a complaint from Clear Channel, which used the Majic name on 100.7 WKKV-HD2.

Original Report 1/24: Due to interference claims from Northwestern College’s WNWC-FM Madison, “Majic 102.5” 860 WNOV Milwaukee has taken its translator silent.

W273AT Mequon, which had been operating with 99 watts, had been causing interference to WNWC-FM’s reception in the Milwaukee area. While WNWC-FM has no protection from full powered stations in the disputed area, translators cannot cause interference to existing stations. While awaiting the FCC to approve the translator application to move to 93.9, they have applied for a STA to take it off the air in the interim.

WNOV continues to operate on its primary 860 signal with 250 watts in the daytime and 5 watts at night.
