When the interference was first noted Reach Communication of Tarmac, FL, which leases the 100.3 FM translator to Clear Channel, reduced power output of W262AN from 198 to 138-watts.
But the interference continued.
The FCC rules are clear – if a translator’s causing interference to a full-power station, it must sign off or immediately fix the problem. So the translator was shut down.
In Pittsburgh, the University of Pitt says a low-power station planned on FM 92.3 in North Versailles Township will interfere with its WPTS 92.1 FM.
According to triblive.com, four East Suburban residents seeking FM 92.3 as Tri-Borough Communications said WPTS shouldn't get protection its attorney demanded from the Federal Communications Commission.

“(Tri-Borough) protects WPTS with a distance separation of only 13.472 kilometers (8.37 miles) when a separation of 56 kilometers (34.8 miles) is required,” Tepper wrote.
“The only (low-power FM) non-waiver channel approved in the FCC's data base (for Pittsburgh) is 92.3,” Tri-Borough responded on Wednesday. “(Pitt's) campus radio station at 92.1 is a non-protected Class D 16-watt low-power station that is not listenable in the North Versailles (area).”
Tri-Borough noted that WPTS shares its frequency with Keymarket's WKPL-92.1, 50 miles away in Ellwood City.
