TUESDAY was quiet for station transactions in the official FCC database and so is today, with some housekeeping Silent STA filings and a few closings to report.
In the Silent STA filings, PATAPHYSICAL BROADCASTING FOUNDATION, INC. has applied for Silent STAs for K237EV/BIG SUR VALLEY, CA, K217EK/PALO COLORADO CANYON, CA, K207CN/SANTA CRUZ, CA, and K206BQ/HOLLISTER, CA because it also took the translators' primary station, KUSP/SANTA CRUZ, off the air on AUGUST 1st and failed to file separate Silent STA requests for the translators at that time.
