WFLI Chattanooga To Go Dark  View Printable Version

IRCA
The owner is retiring. Thats the main reason.

The reason is usually given in the application to the FCC to cease
operation, which isn't filed until after it's off the air. The 50 kW day
power is expensive. It has four towers so if it doesn't own the site rent
can be expensive. My guess is it's financial. The inability to get parts
rarely results in going dark.

for this? High operating and maintenance costs, a la CKSL, or can't get
parts, a la WDOD? A look at Radio Locator shows a lot of stations in the
immediate area and, though they use three towers in the daytime and 4 at
night, the strong S.E. lobes of both suggest some of those towers may be
common. Given the number of strong signals in that comparatively small
market, I wonder how anyone makes money in radio there anyway.

Alberta TPs for 23 March 2017  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 24 2017

IRCA


Almost a shutout in terms of audio here today, but not quite:

774 3LO Melbourne, AUSTRALIA Poor, with time pips at 1300, followed by
the ABC news fanfare.

828 3GI Sale, AUSTRALIA Could make out the ABC news fanfare at 1300,
but that was about it.


Nothing from Asia today. Several DU carriers on the X-band, but none
that reached audio this morning.

Not a lot there. Burps of syllables that might be EE or AUS ENGLISH as Chuck has suggested.
