Chuck you are correct on the site. I had two browsers open and pasted the wrong url.

KCSM-TV discontinues MHz programming, citing FCC regulations

Interesting reading. Thanks for the links.

Interesting reading for sure but it gives you a headache trying to follow. I am "just" able to try and understand how KCSM, KMTP and KQED came about.

I am not really disagreeing with your description of how KCSM on Bruno ceased to be and I might have been the person to put the parts together to generate the phrase "were thrown off San Bruno by KNTV".

I just wonder if the rates for KCSM and KNTV using the tower would be the same and were then raised when it was realized that KNTV wanted to move North and how long the requirement for a 10 years lease had been in effect. For many years I am guessing that it was. Out bid perhaps might be a better term. Plus CSM wanted to stop spending money on KCSM and still does and the new owner is now paying some of the expenses. KCSM was playing chicken with the FCC during the period of no analog signal on RF 60 but they got by, spent less money and did not get hurt.

The link sure gives lots of examples of stations being "Dark" for long periods

One thing I discovered about companies is:

1) Any one who knows what is going on is prohibited by law to not disclose anything. CEO, CFO, BOD and so on. Martha Stewart is an example.

2) The rest of the world cannot find out the real story so they make ones up.

When it was announced that KQCA will soon start broadcasting Estrella on 58.3 both Larry and I wondered what was going to happen to KTNC since they cover the Sacramento market with Estrella. I did a little research into KTNC and I found they were purchased two years ago by a group who's stated purpose was to buy up under performing stations and sell them in the auction next year. If the auction occurs as scheduled, it would appear that KTNC will only be around for another year or so. The FCC says that auctioned stations who plan to shut down (not move or channel share) have 3 months after the auction to do so.

This would explain Estrella showing up on KQCA and why KTNC has filed no applications to move to Sutro Tower. I suppose this will open up the possibility for some other station to move to channel 14 on Sutro Tower.
