KSCO 1080 Santa Cruz admits cheating 25+ years.
Application for STAs denied:
1080 KSCO CA Santa Cruz – Application for STA with U2 10000/1000 denied; station said it has been operating with 1 kW ND at night for at least 25 years because the night pattern doesn’t cover much of the area. FCC says (1) QRM to KRLD would allow only 28 watts night ND, and (2) the station gives no technical reason it can’t use licensed 5 kW DA night facilities, so the STA application is denied and KSCO
“must terminate its unauthorized non-directional operation at night IMMEDIATELY.”
