CGC COMMMUNICATOR reports that another adjacent-market Class A FM has filed a complaint with the FCC over interference from the HD RADIO signal of a superpowered adjacent-channel Class B station in LOS ANGELES.
GOLD COAST RADIO, licensee of Regional Mexican KMLA (LA M 103.7)/OXNARD-VENTURA, is complaining that is receiving interference from CLEAR CHANNEL AC KOST/LOS ANGELES' HD signal.
The letter was sent on APRIL 20th and claims "interference that was not there three years ago" from KOST, and asks "how we can regain signal coverage taken away" by KOST's signal. "We have spent a lot of money on RF studies, applying for directional FM service, purchasing and installing a new directional ERI antenna to do what we can do legally to fight the interference," write SALVADOR CEJA and GUILLERMO GONZALEZ of KMLA, "Only to find that the interference still exists."
