Covenant Network, owner of catholic radio stations in St. Louis, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, etc. has been granted a broadcast license by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a new FM translator station for KHOJ-AM 1460 to broadcast on 96.7 FM (Granted one week ago today)
The station, K244FO-FM, is licensed to Crestwood, Missouri with an Effective Radiated Power of 250 Watts from a tower of 827 feet above Ground Level located just off of Tesson Ferry Road in Crestwood.
according to the FCC, FM Translator stations simultaneously rebroadcast the signal of a primary AM or FM station on a different frequency. Those translator stations that provide service within the primary station’s protected service area are classified as “fill-in” stations. Fill-in translators can be owned by the main station or by an independent entity. Commercial non-fill-in translators are generally owned by independent entities, with certain exceptions, while noncommercial educational non-fill-in translator stations are generally owned by the primary station being rebroadcast.
If you are in St. Louis,Covenant Network is asking you to check out their newest station on 96.7 FM! Let them know if it comes in where you live by clicking on their website or contact me by filling out our feedback form and I will forward the feedback to Covenant Network.
