If, as I am, you are accustomed to listening to Radio Free Nashville at home and while you’re driving around town, you got a rude shock last week when you tuned in to 103.7 or 107.1. You didn’t hear WRFN. You heard 24-hour-a-day Christian talk/news radio. Bott Broadcasting is attempting to open a station on our frequency. Their programming is not local, but originates in Kansas City and is repeated on dozens of stations nationwide. WRFN manager Ginny Welsch got them to stop while we sort this out with the FCC, so we need all the help we can get, in the form of letters from you to the FCC, to let them know you appreciate being able to hear WRFN in Nashville. Bott has several other repeaters on other frequencies in the Nashville area, so it’s not like they’ll be shut out of the market if they don’t get 107.1, which they apparently don’t even have call letters for yet. Let’s keep it that way.
Here’s a letter from Ginny telling us what to do:
Hey folks-Please consider filing an informal objection with the FCC to granting Bott Broadcasting’s translator on 107.1 That is the translator causing us all this interference.Informal objections need to be mailed to the FCC and signed. Make three copies of your letter, and send them all (in one envelope) to
445 12th Street, SW
Washington, DC 20554They don’t need to be fancy. You just need to say you object because it is interfering with the station you listen to. Please ask your friends to send one, too.
