Observer “Seeing Eye” alerted PBRTV today that WMNY (1150 New Kensington) is now airing Hindi music. This signifies that the new owner – Radio 1150 Limited Liability Company – has officially taken over the station.
Broadcast Communications, Inc. has submitted an application to move the KQV (1410) transmitter from its long-time Ross Township site to North Versailles where it will be diplexed at the WEDO tower. KQV will be able to maintain a 5000 watt daytime signal, but the new location will allow for it to be non-directional. The the nighttime power will be reduced to 75 watts. According to the engineering study, the station can remain licensed to Pittsburgh despite the low night signal. The daytime 5 mV contour will cover greater than 50% of the city limits with no nighttime coverage requirement to City of License.
