FCC Grants Waiver To Let Cromwell Group Move Illinois FM Translator
September 2, 2011 at 11:56 AM (PT)
The FCC has granted a waiver to THE CROMWELL GROUP to allow the company to move FM translator W263AQ/MATTOON, IL to become a fill-in translator for Talk WCRA-A/EFFINGHAM, IL.
The move required a waiver because the 60 dBu contours of the existing and proposed facilities do not overlap and would require a multi-step application process to accomplish rather than a simple minor change application. CROMWELL argued successfully that a waiver would save time and expense while accomplishing what the lengthier and more complicated process would have done anyway. WCRA presently simulcasts on W284BI/EFFINGHAM.
