WJLN Application to Increase Power


Box 5 Folder 23: "Folder 23 from 1968 is an application to the FCC from Johnston Broadcasting to increase WJLN power from 25k to 100k.  Here's the essence of it from the abstract:

The Present Antenna is mounted on the WJLD (AM) tower, as is the Antenna of WBMG-TV (CH.42). WBMG (TV) has recently received a construction permit to change site, (BPCT 4101) and this will, at a later date, call for the removal of the TV Antenna from the WJLD tower, and a new determination of the WJLD antenna impedance. This will also be necessary when a new FM Antenna is installed.

The allocation study for WJLN reveals that it is short-spaced to only one Station and this is by one mile on the 3rd adjacent Channel (CH.286) to WQSB, Albertville, Alabama. WJLN, therefore, is elegible [sic] to increase power to 100 KWs, pursuant to par. 73.213(a) of the SGEP.

Found in the WJLD files."
