OASIS RADIO NETWORK noncommercial Religion WYCS (OASIS 91.5)/YORKTOWN, VA loses a bid at the NEWPORT NEWS City Council to build a new tower in the VIRGINIA city, according to the DAILY PRESS, with the council rejecting the station's application by a 4-2 vote.
OASIS proposed a 400-foot tower last year, igniting a battle with NEWPORT NEWS/WILLIAMSBURG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, which disagreed with an FAA finding that the tower would not be a hazard and claimed that the tower would harm plans to expand the airport. The city imposed 27 conditions on the proposed tower, and the station could not agree to five of those.
