At the FCC

New petitions. Sinclair filed three of them in the West.

  • KCBY (11 > 34) - Coos Bay, OR
  • KCFW (9 > 17) - Kalispell, MT
  • KENV (10 > 20) - Elko, NV

EDIT: Big News in the Mid-South.

 

After more than 25 months since its filing, and basically nearly 12 years since this process began, the FCC have gave the greenlight (R&O) to WMC's move to UHF. 

I talked about this in detail in the Gray thread.

 

There's one more R&O today.

I'm going to talk more about this later in the Gray thread.

 

 

 

I'm surprised they haven't figured out a way to move WKRC to UHF, or at least provided a massive power boost. That is one crappy signal.

I wish there was an ability to downgrade the terrible WRNN-owned stations to 200-watt AM daytimers instead of giving them better UHF signals. 😒 Also this 'upgrade' applies to share/sister station WMFP, so yay, clearer ShopHQ and OnTV4U farther away, Boston!

 

I do wonder if KENV's upgrade would bring back a major network to that station, or at the very least making it a KMYU satellite. As for WMC, as Lizzo would say, 'it's about damned time'.

The FCC has just proposed a fine of $504k to Fox for a violation of using EAS tones outside of an actual emergency.

Quote

We propose a penalty of $504,000 against Fox Corporation for apparently willfully violating the Federal Communications Commission’s rules that prohibit the transmission of, or causing the transmission of, false or deceptive emergency alert system (EAS) codes or EAS Attention Signals, or simulations thereof. On November 28, 2021, FOX apparently transmitted, or caused the transmission of, EAS Tones during a FOX National Football League (NFL) promotional segment in the absence of any actual emergency, authorized test of the EAS, or qualified public service announcement (PSA).

I believe this was the incident in question.

I mean it predicted the Eagles in 2022 perfectly, so in that way, the promo did serve its purpose in warning the NFC East about the Eagles (along with just...Eagles fans). 😉

 

But yeah, the fine is justified, if just a little high (it's more of a $100k violation than $500k for me). Just use a generic Morse Code alert next time, Fox Sports.
