KECR 910 kHz El Cajon won the latest FCC auction to get an AM “cross-service” 10 watt translator on 100.1 MHz at Mt. San Miguel. According to the July 3, 2019 FCC announcement, Family Radio prepaid $35,000 for their bid.
The new translator assignment is part of the FCC’s AM Revitalization program in which AM stations, where possible, have been granted FM translator channels to retransmit their primary signals.
Many AM stations in San Diego now have an FM translator in place in San Diego County.
