WDTP 89.5/90.1

Post by Lucky615 » Fri Jun 19, 2020 10:07 am

Is there still a CP for Smile FM to move to 90.1 or has this expired. And just out of curiosity how could that even be possible with CBE at 89.9, here in Southgate (2 miles from WDTP’s existing 89.5 tower) 89.9 is like a local . Any thoughts?

It's done with contour overlap studies. It's always been permitted, at least on AM. WRDT and CKWW, WRDT and CBEF, even WNZK and the vacant CHYR allotment has those contour overlap considerations. CJFT 530 and WGR 550 is another.

Canada has been doing this more and more in recent years with new border allotments, in their never ending quest to eliminate listening to US stations in border areas. But then they still hamper those new stations with format restrictions that make It so the US stations are still more attractive to border listeners.

All of the other new Canadian drop ins in Windsor Essex are contour based, but they are on second adjacent channels.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?
