Back in the days of Jukebox Radio 103.1, they got in trouble because 103.1 wasn't fed over the air. There was no way it could receive 99.7 WJUX or its 94.3 translator over the air in Fort Lee.
It was fed (most of the time) via 94.3 from Rockland County, which received 99.7 quite clearly. 99.7 could also be received on that Fort Lee rooftop. The Sony car radio had very good adjacent channel rejection, plus a 40dB cavity filter on 99.5 to notch out WBAI and a "hot spot" on the rooftop. Don't believe me? I spent many an hour on that rooftop, and there was a video to prove it that was presented in court (the case was decided in favor of Jukebox). I worked there for 4+ years and know it inside and out.
If your car radio is selective enough, 99.7 can be received on the ground in certain spots in Fort Lee.
The 99.7 was LMA'ed, not owned. The FCC had a letter saying it was okay, but reversed course on their own decision years later. Hence the selling of the stations.
It is also being fed the exact same way now with The Bridge. Signal goes from Old Bridge all the way up to Liberty and makes its way back down.
Sorry, I just get a little miffed when the facts are wrong on this case, as I spent a LOT of time keeping it working as well as it did and know that it wasn't being fed with anything but the air signal. In fact, during the times of tropo, that was proven again and again when the rock station from VA rolled in.
