• The non-commercial band in Metro Detroit may be getting a bit more crowded as the FCC has granted Educational Media Foundation a construction permit for a major change that will move its KVLZ FM 89.9 from Sheridan Wyoming to Rochester Hills where it will, if the construction permit is built and licensed, occupy FM 90.3 and operate with 1,200 watts @ 174 feet (Class A) with a directional antenna located near downtown Rochester.

The company currently operates an FM translator from the same location on FM 105.5 (W288BK) that rebroadcasts the Contemporary Christian "K-Love" format that airs on the leased digital subchannel of Clear Channel's WMXD-FM 92.3 HD2.

Some of the communities that would be served by the new station include Rochester, Rochester Hills, Auburn Hills, Troy, Sterling Heights, Utica, and the Townships of Oakland, Shelby, Washington, Macomb, and Clinton.

The construction permit for the change / move will not expire until March 5, 2015 - giving the organization plenty of time to complete the necessary work. However, with some of the required infrastructure such as power and the tower already in place with the translator operating there, turnaround time could be rather quick.

One of the exhibits in the application for the move states, "Educational Media Foundation ("EMF") certifies that the proposed facility will provide a first NCE aural service to at least 10% of the persons residing in the proposed 60 dBu and that this population exceeds 2,000 persons. In fact, as can be seen in Exhibits 10-A and 10-B, the proposed facility provides first service to 54,830 persons, which is 43.4% of the overall population within its 60 dBu service contour." However, this exhibit appears to completely overlook the fact that WDET-FM 101.9 provides noncommercial educational service to these residents. Whether or not this could be the grounds for another broadcaster to appeal this FCC decision remains to be seen.
