I've been a little busy for a while, but I thought I'd check in and share some of my observations...
1. Results requested a dismissal of their Davis dump site modification application probably due to the hassle of getting approval without signing on thier approved El Macero CP site. The CP was due to run out later this year.
2. They applied for a modification to a fully spaced site which was easy to sail through the commission's approval proccess. Now they can sign the station on and get a license to cover for Woodland.
3. The next step...and watch this happen. Aftert they get the license to cover in Woodland, CA and are actually broadcasting in the market, they will reapply for the Davis dump site. It should be fairly easy to get the waiver (due to the short spacing with KHYL) since the overlapping "interfering" contours will be in the middle of a cow pasture and the increase in persons reached with the station will be viewed by the FCC as "A better use of Spectrum" while still "serving" the "fast growing" Woodland and Davis area.
5. 95.5...(I saw this as the perfect final home for Sunny a while back). The KUBA webiste is announcing that 1600 will be the only place to hear KUBA as of today. As it stands, it is perfectly legal to simulcast 101.5 on 95.5 for the time being since the 95.5 60 dbu contour is within 101.5's 60 dbu contour. What will probably happen is that an IBOC will probably be launched on 103.1 and the Sunny intelectual property will be broadcasted on 103.1 HD and simulcasted on the analog translator at 95.5. This is perfectly legal . There's an example of this in Atlanta.
Another thing, 95.5 was recently upgraded with directional antenna aimed to the east. This will make an attractive translator for 103.1 HD-2
