In other filings with the FCC, FIRST VENTURES CAPITAL PARTNERS, INC. is selling FM translator W277AT/HAVANA, IL to AMERICAN EDUCATION FOUNDATION, INC for $30,000.
THE POWER FOUNDATION is selling the construction permit for noncommercial KKWW/SHELBINA, MO to NEW LIFE EVANGELISTIC CENTER, INC. for $17,000.
NORTHWESTERN COLLEGE is selling FM translator K240CJ/OAKES, ND to SIOUX VALLEY BROADCASTING COMPANY for $10,000. The translator will rebroadcast the buyer's Country KDDR-A (DAKOTA COUNTRY)/OAKES, ND.
WEST CANADA CHRISTIAN RESOURCES has applied for an extension of its Silent STA for low power FM WKUY-LP/NEWPORT, NY.
THE FORT COLLINS/LAFAYETTE DIVESTITURE TRUST, which oversees spinoff stations from TOWNSQUARE's acquisition of REGENT, has requested a Silent STA for KARS/LARAMIE, WY-FORT COLLINS, CO due to technical problems and snow storms that have prevented access to the transmitter for repairs. The station is continuing to operate via booster KARS-FM1 in FORT COLLINS.
GEORGE S. FLINN, JR. has applied for a Silent STA for KBDB/SPARKS, NV due to a change in program source and equipment.
FLINN is also involved in a filing, as EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION is proposing to move its FM translator W249BN/ELLENDALE, TN to MEMPHIS with 250 watts from a tower near BARTLETT, TN, and lists the primary station in the application as FLINN's Spanish WGSF-A/MEMPHIS but lists FLINN's Sports WHBQ-A/MEMPHIS as the primary in the technical exhibit. The translator's proposed 60 dBu signal would cover mostly the eastern portion of the MEMPHIS market, including GERMANTOWN and BARTLETT.
And FAMILY STATIONS, INC. has closed on the sale of two FM translators, W228AM/FREDERICK, MD and W228AB/PARAMOUNT, MD, to AMERICAN UNIVERSITY for $100,000.
