FCC Update 8/30: Pittsburgh Translator Move Denied

Last week Educational Media Foundation sought a STA to complete the move of 106.3 W292DH Uniontown, PA into Pittsburgh while it sought out issues with the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA issued a Notice of Presumed Hazard for W292DH’s 250 watt at 165 meters Construction Permit. The STA sought to begin operations at that facility with just 46 watts. But as the city-of-license was to remain in Uniontown the STA would not reach that city nor could it be used to build out a CP, it was declined by the FCC. W292DH is due to rebroadcast iHeartMedia Sports “970 ESPN” WBGG Pittsburgh via a Mattoon Waiver. Translator Moves
