Station Moves

92.7 New York WQBU Garden City FCC Translator Application Construction Permit CPUnivision’s Manhattan booster for Regional Mexican “92.7 Nueva York” WQBU Garden City is looking to cross the street, literally. WQBU-1 is applying to move from 450 W. 33rd Street to 460 W. 34th St with an increase from 80 watts to 99 watts at 76 meters continuing to utilize a directional array (Coverage Map).

Educational Media Foundation’s 90.9 WKTZ-FM Jacksonville, FL also seeks to move across the street. WKTZ-FM will shift from its current tower where it operates with 50kW at 141 meters to 41kW at 166 meters (Coverage Map).

Auburn University’s 91.1 WEGL Auburn, AL applies to increase from a Class A with 3kW at 65 meters to a C3 with 15kW at 94.2 meters (Coverage Map).

Wagonwheel Communications Country 92.1 KFRZ Green River, WY applies to downgrade their signal from a Class C with 90kW at 347 meters to a C1 with 11kW from the same antenna height (Coverage Map).

Light of Life Ministries won the rights to what became 91.5 WWRN Rockport, MA in a 2007 filing window because UMass Boston’s application inadvertently placed its proposed coordinates in Quebec due to a typo. After filing an appeal, UMass Boston’s application has been returned to a pending state. In order to potentially allow UMass to be granted a CP and keep WWRN on the air, Light of Life has applied to relocate WWRN to 88.5 with an increase from 530 to 750 watts while retaining its existing 57 meter antenna height (Coverage Map).
