I'm really shocked Marquette didn't try. There was a *huge* LPFM push in 2000 before the 3rd adjacent rule got slapped on LPFM and basically killed any chances of MUR getting an over-the-air signal in Milwaukee at that time. (Not that we didn't try to get someone to donate an AM to us after that...)

For those who may be interested, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors (WYMS) filed a petition to deny a few days ago in relation to the 89.3 app. The 89.3 applicant requested a waiver due to being short-spaced to both WYMS and WUWM. However, WYMS has been running a "reading service for the blind" on their subcarrier for many years, and the FCC has already stated they will not grant spacing waivers in those situations in order to protect the service. I'll be interested to see how it plays out (obviously)!

I should also mention that WFAQ-LP (92.7) Mukwonago, WI has filed for a major modification to move closer to Mukwonago and change frequency to 101.3. It is being counted with the MX group for Milwaukee. I don't see it as having a chance in heck of being granted under the circumstances, but that's just my somewhat educated opinion.

Changes to licensed stations are at the bottom of the priority list so they're pretty much toast in an MX with a new station.

Can't wait until the massive QRM starts. One client in California had one pop up co-channel *inside the 70 dbu Longley-Rice contour* which means (1) the LPFM will have a coverage area of about two blocks and (2) 20,000 people lose service from an established station that does quite well in the ratings. This is turning into a huge mess. I hope the proponents got their money's worth because there are a lot of naive applicants about to be chucked in to the Petition to Deny chipper. I heard one major group has well over 100 of these they are dealing with that will cause interference to an operating commercial station.

Yeah, I'm totally on board with the theory behind LPFM and its mission. Diversity and localism in media is a good thing, however the problem is that we're trying to fit 100lbs of stuff in a 50lb bag.

It's a 1 pound bag in many markets, and "localism" is not satellite-fed 23 hours a day. We now have hundreds of 100 watt satellators to complement all the translator abuse.

It was a good idea but like most good ideas money corrupted it beyond recognition.
