While driving along I-271 through the eastern burbs, I came across a new repeater on 101.5. It was rebroadcasting WGAR. It’s shown in the FCC records as W268CV with COL of Beachwood. I also noticed that 106.1 was no longer on the air, so it was a switch from 106.1 to 101.5. There was RDS popping up too.
any updates on what i-heart radio is doing with the 101.5 fm translator in beachwood ohio ? hope it will be foggy mountain country which is on wgar 99.5 hd-2 or something like rhythmic oldies. i think that will work on the east side of cleveland and the eastern suburbs area of cleveland.
The fact of the matter is that WGAR does not need any repeater on 101.5, 101.1. 106.1 (where they used to be), or wherever the heck they want. It’s a way of shutting down competing radio stations from using these frequencies, and the FCC is incapable of stopping this practice from happening. Or they just don’t care, as any government-run entity is ineffective at accomplishing anything meaningful.
