FCC Report 12/3: A Class D Downgrade Attempt Near Bakersfield

FM Changes

Savage Radio 89.7 KSVG Mettler BakersfieldKern Community Radio’s “89.7 Savage Radio” KSVG Mettler CA is seeking a waiver to make a rare downgrade from a Class A to Class D with 99w/23m.

Although new Class D licenses were eliminated in 1978 with the exception of Alaska, Kern Community Radio believes its eight point waiver request is the only way to keep the group from having to turn in KSVG’s license. Among the rationale for seeking the downgrade is the coverage will be equivalent to a 100w LPFM, it is the only non-commercial station in the Bakersfield market with a local studio, and the downgrade is the only way for the station to preserve its current coverage contour.
