In other filings with the FCC, CORNERSTONE COMMUNITY RADIO, INC. is selling W286AJ/JERSEYVILLE, IL to METROPLEX COMMUNICATIONS, INC. for $60,000. The primary station proposed in the application is Talk WBGZ/ALTON, IL. It currently rebroadcasts LEWIS AND CLARK COMMUNITY COLLEGE noncommercial WLCA/JERSEYVILLE.

TURQUOISE BROADCASTING COMPANY, LLC has requested a Silent STA for K257ER/SOLDOTNA, AL due to equipment failure.

And CLEAR CHANNEL's AMFM RADIO LICENSES LLC has applied to move W232CB/FREDERICK, MD to ROCKVILLE, MD on 104.9 FM, with the cooperation of SALEM, whose Religion WAVA/ARLINGTON-WASHINGTON is on first-adjacent 105.1 FM. The presently licensed facility has drawn interference complaints from co-channel RED ZEBRA sports WWXX (simulcast of WTEM-A (ESPN980))/BUCKLAND, VA that has resulted in a temporary power reduction of the present W232CB facility. RADIO INSIGHT reports that the move will be followed by another frequency change to allow a move into WASHINGTON.
