As they await word on the proposed sale of University of San Francisco’s college radio station KUSF to Classical Public Radio Network (CPRN), the folks at USF and CPRN have been working to gain approval from the FCC in order to move the KUSF transmitter off-campus and out of San Francisco to Mt. Beacon in Sausalito. With this move CPRN hopes to both maintain greater control over the transmitter and expand the broadcast range of KUSF.
As we reported a few weeks ago, USF filed an initial request with the FCC back in February, requesting that the transmitter for KUSF 90.3 FM be moved to Sausalito. University of California at Berkeley’s radio station KALX 90.7 FM expressed concern about this proposal and on their behalf the Regents of the University of California filed an informal objection with the FCC. That objection was dismissed as moot on the same day (March 15) that the FCC denied USF’s request to move the transmitter.
