Re: Look at all the FCC silent notifications in N. Michigan...

I did see that a 100.7 was dropped in at Bear Lake after 99.9 was assigned to Custer. If that allocation gets moved toward TC, then another station would likely have to backfill and change its COL to Bear Lake (likely WIAA or WTCM-FM) I can't imagine anyone with any common sense moving another sign...

How is Nexstar doing this? I thought they were at the ownership cap — and the FCC was making them divest stations like WPIX in New York City?
They're selling WJMN. If anything, it very reduces their ownership footprint, albeit slightly.

Lightning strike?
The best guess from those who were on site the day of the fire points to the generator, which may have been on due to high winds taking out the utility power. This certainly isn't the first time a generator has taken out a facility.

Re: UP High School Radio Station Loses Frequency To Bigger Station

It seems like a displaced Class D station can move to another frequency, even a Commercial channel, between 92-108 MHz. There are a lot of vacant Canadian allotments, but if the 34 dBu F(50,10) doesn't reach Canadian land, they could use it. A lot of applications and grants have been made recently ...
