Groups seeking FM radio stations clear the air

PORT TOWNSEND — Groups proposing community FM radio stations in East Jefferson and Clallam counties have cleared the airwaves of conflict and are awaiting Federal Communications Commission application approvals.

Supporters of Radio Port Townsend and Sequim Community Broadcasting worked out agreements with Port Townsend Seventh-Day Adventist Church representatives that will allow three groups to operate on the Eastern Olympic Peninsula without crossing signals.

That has led to the FCC accepting all three applications, which now await final approval.

“We think they’re acting quickly,” Radio PT leader Sherry Jones said of the FCC. “We think within the next few weeks.”

Radio PT removed its proposal from conflict with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church’s application by changing its frequency to 91.9 and relocating its transmitter tower site to the northwestern edge of the Quimper Peninsula, said Jones.
