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.February 10, 2017 at 3:54 pm #172236
Is iHeart planning to do something else with 106.1 or shut that one down for good. That frequency could be used for another AM in Cleveland without an FM translator.
Not sure if 101.5 is a good place considering WINT’s translator further out east. Any updates on 93.7/104.5 in Cleveland?March 15, 2017 at 8:47 pm #173251
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.March 16, 2017 at 11:23 am #173257
Why is there a 101.5 repeater in Beachwood so close to WINT’s repeater in Willoughby?March 18, 2017 at 7:19 am #173287
Why is there a 101.5 repeater in Beachwood so close to WINT’s repeater in Willoughby?Not sure. My guess is 101.5 is not a final destination for iHeart. Either they will use that frequency or perhaps (and this is just a guess) swap with EMF for one of theirs. There’s 92.7 and 103.7.June 7, 2017 at 5:51 pm #174834
W268CV has now moved, or is in the process of moving, from 101.5 to 101.1.August 9, 2017 at 4:36 pm #175872

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.
