Christyahna Gets New Lemon Grove AM CP

The FCC issued a construction permit for a new 1400 kHz AM station in Lemon Grove. The group operating the 2 watt KRLY-LP "Lite 107.9" in Alpine, Christyahna Broadcasting, had filed for the new 1000 watt local channel station in 2007, but Gold Coast Broadcasting, operating a co-channel AM station in Ventura County, had filed a petition to deny.

Christyahna principal Gerry Turro was past Chief Engineer at WNEW New York, then the operator of the famous "Jukebox Radio" network WJUX in northern New Jersey. The FCC eventually broke up the network of low power FM stations in 2003 after it was accused by competitors of improperly extending its coverage with translators outside its primary coverage area using fiber links to the various transmitters.
