Group Fights Translator Move-In To Milwaukee

A group called the MILWAUKEE FREE RADIO GROUP is battling an attempt by TIM MARTZ's RADIO POWER, INC. to move an FM translator into the MILWAUKEE market.
NORTHPINE.COM's UPPER MIDWEST BROADCASTING reports that the group has filed an opposition to MARTZ' filing that would move W250BN/WEST ALLIS, WI to the MILWAUKEE antenna farm with 250 watts, noting that the station has moved from BELOIT to MILWAUKEE in five hops filed within less than two years, which the group characterizes as an "abuse of process."
MARTZ put commercial formats on two translators in the DETROIT market, although one has been taken off the air due to interference with a full-power station in TOLEDO.
