Montgomery Move-In Proposed Via Four Station Shuffle
The first move will see Southeast Alabama’s “Rock 104” 103.9 WJRL-FM Fort Rucker increase from a Class C3 operating with 25kW at 89 meters to a C2 with 26kW at 208.1 meters. To enable the upgrade of WJRL-FM, “Country 103.7” WAAO-FM Andalusia will be shifted to 93.7 with the same facilities.
The next step will see Gulf South’s News/Talk 93.7 WDBT Hartford downgrade from a Class C1 running 100kW at 260 meters to a Class A on 93.5 with 5kW at 109.3 meters. The station will also change city of license to Hope Hull where it will rimshot Montgomery by putting a 60 dBu signal over the city. A move closer to Montgomery is prohibited in order to retain spacing requirements to 93.7 WDJC-FM Birmingham.
The third change will see Gulf South’s AC “Mix 96.9” WDJR change city of license from Enterprise to Hartford in order to keep broadcast service in that municipality following WDBT’s move. No changes in its operating facilities.
