KURS Updates

By Joe Nelson

   I have been searching for info on the silent KURS 1040.

Fortunately my birdies are chirping. (Respectfully appreciated)

Here are two nuggets:

----------------------------------------
I thought this might interest you (Courtesy www.radioinsight.com):

"El Sembrador Ministries is exercising its option to purchase Silent 1040 KURS San Diego CA from Quetzal Bilingual Communications for $900,000. El Sembrador is being credited half of its Time Brokerage fees paid since July 2014 subtracting $310,000 from the money owed. KURS went silent in early October after failing to pay tower owner Multicultural Broadcasting due rent. $10,816 from the deposit paid to Quetzal will go to Multicultural to restore the station’s use of the tower.

----------------------------------------------


A quick check of the FCC CDBS shows they went silent on 9/25-2016:

Exhibit 1
Description: JUSTIFICATION FOR REQUEST

THE LICENSEE IS NEGOTIATING WITH SITE OWNER TO CONTINUE USE OF SITE.



A check of the FCC ASR (Registration Number: 1262013) shows the tower is owned by Multicultural Radio Broadcasting, Inc

Thanks, friends!
Joe
