WVIR is running on channel 19 right now. They're using WCAV's old interim facility because the channel 2 gear still hasn't been installed. (Manufacturer delay.)

OK - let me see if I have got this right.

WCAV had to transition from RF 19 to allow WAVY to transition to RF 19.

WVIR was supposed to transition to RF 2 but transitioned to RF 19 instead.

WVIR is temporarily operating using WCAV's old temporary equipment until the RF 2 gear is in place. WCAV was tired of waiting, and yes, WAVY will need 19 at the end of Phase 7 (mid-January) so the permission to use 19 lasts only that long. If they end up on 19 longer than that, they'll have to cut power back further.

So WAVY has transitioned to RF 19 using an interim facility - read reduced power? (Could not get their licensed facility completed in time for some reason)

Therefore WVIR which is still on RF 19 has had to reduce their power level further?

Because the WAVY facility is at reduced power, the interference between the two remains low enough that WVIR can stay put at the current power level. Should WAVY finish its construction before WVIR, then WVIR would have to cut power.
