With MARK HELLER moving Oldies WGBW-A/TWO RIVERS, WI into the GREEN BAY market with new city of license DENMARK, WI, a bid by the COAST GUARD to build a taller tower on WGBW's present site has been shot down by local officials.
The MANITOWOC HERALD TIMES REPORTER reports that the MANITOWOC COUNTY BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT voted unanimously MONDAY to deny the application for eight variances and a conditional use permit to allow GRAIN COMMUNICATIONS GROUP to increase the tower from 239 feet to 440 feet for use by the COAST GUARD for its "Rescue 21" emergency communications system. GRAIN may appeal the decision but, unless it wins an appeal, it will be barred from reapplying for a year.
