2012 Due Diligence, Upgrade Plans & technical parts of business plan for new station owners. Sold FM translator station in metro of 90,000. 2011: South central US Upgrade/Move-In: Identified Upgrade path for AM covering a wide area but few people in declining area. Contacted owner, arranged upgrade path (FCC filings, leases, co-location plan, ways FM translators could be used with AM). City grade coverage of AM went from 5,000 to 225,000 while sharing an existing station's tower. FM translator puts 1 mv over 90+ percent of the AM city grade pop. From unrelated parts to new signal/format for an existing cluster in less than a year at moderate six figure price.
