The FCC database is relatively quiet FRIDAY (3/20), with just one "deal" -- an LPFM donation -- among the transactions, along with some stations filing for Silent STAs.
BURNET BIBLE CHURCH is donating low-power FM KFGG-LP/MARBLE FALLS, TX to THE BIBLE CHURCH OF THE LAKES, INC.
THE POWER FOUNDATION has requested a silent STA for WABB-A/BELTON, SC due to vandalism from copper thieves.
WEST CENTRAL MICHIGAN MEDIA MINISTRIES has applied for a Silent STA for W273CC/ALPENA, MI due to equipment failure.
BLESSED BEGINNINGS has filed for a Silent STA for WIOE-LP/WARSAW, IN while it upgrades its facility and obtains new programming.
And HORIZON CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP has closed on the sale of K291BT/GRAND FORKS, ND to GOPHER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY for $40,000.
LAFAYETTE PARISH SCHOOL SYSTEM has been granted a construction permit for a new low power FM at LAFAYETTE, LA.
The Commission also renewed the license of TRINITY ASSOCIATES BROADCASTING, LLC for News-Talk WFYL-A/KING OF PRUSSIA-PHILADELPHIA, PA over a challenge by EDMUND B. PAPIERNIK. PAPIERNIK alleged main studio, public file, station ID, operating schedule, EAS, and pre- and post-filing announcement violations and objected to the station's programming.
