KVIB-LP FM Granted License to Cover

On June 27, 2019, the FCC granted low power FM broadcaster KVIB-LP a license to operate on 101.1 MHz from its facility at the World Beat Cultural Center in Balboa Park, San Diego. However, as of the first week in July, no signal was heard when in the vicinity, and no new transmit antenna is in place there. KRTH-FM has a dominant 50 kW signal on 101.1 from Mt. Wilson, easily receivable throughout most of the San Diego area. World Beat can’t build a tower above tree level due to its location in the flight path for the San Diego Lindbergh Field airport.
