Salem’s WPGP (1250) will soon have a translator in town. The company paid $75,000 to Family Ministries for W279BK (103.7) in Carbondale. According to the FCC query, the application has it being licensed to Pittsburgh and moved to 103.9 FM at 60 watts. One might question the move in frequency given that 103.7 is clear in Pittsburgh. We aren’t sure what tower the antenna will be on yet, but it might be located too close to Froggy’s 103.5 FM WOGH licensed to Burgettstown, but whose transmitter is still located at WTOV-TV near Steubenville. But wait, isn’t 103.9 FM home to WLSW in Scottdale? The “distant signal” barely makes it to Pittsburgh.
Stay tuned for more translator news as the window for Class “A” & “B” stations recently opened.
