F. C. C. Spikes Stations’
Requests for Bands of
Distance Broadcasters.
OPES of a dozen broadcasting
stations to improve their oper
ating facilities through a pro
jected East-West Coast dupli
cation on several of the so-called clear
channels have been blasted by the
Federal Communications Commission.
At a meeting during the last few
days, the F. C. C. broadcast division
denied in their entirety a sheaf of ap
plications for duplicated assignments
on three of the 40 clear channels. It
did not assign the reason, but it is
generally thought that it Is holding in
abeyance any alteration of existing
allocations until it can survey the an
tire broadcasting spectrum, and that
the changes in regulations which
would permit such duplications will
not come until hearings are held on
them later this year or next year.
Clear channels originally were set
aside by the old Radio Commission in
1928 as a means of providing service
from high-power stations to rural or
remote listeners, with high-power sta
tions on the channels. Of the original
total of 40. some 10 have been •'dupli
cated- at night by assignment experi
mentally of additional stations on
them The theory has been that by
assigning stations on opposite coasts
no undue interference would bp caused,
but the F. C. C.. after more than a
year of consideration, decided against
the applications in the three current
The most important of the proposed
clear-channel •'breakdowns” involved
the 640-kilocycle channel, upon which
KFI. Los Angeles, is the dominant
station, using 50,000 watts at night
with no other station on the wave. A
number of stations in the East sought
full-time operation on it. Instead, the
F. C. C. denied all these applications,
but did grant that of the Portland.
Me., Broadcasting System for a new
600-watt station on this channel to
operate only until sunset at Los
Angeles, when night propagation char
acteristics set in. During the daytime,
there is no chance of interference. The
Portland company is associated with
the Press-Herald of that city.
The second East-West Coast dupli
cation project involved the 830-kilo
cycle channel on which KOA, Denver,
N. B. C. owned station, is the dominant
outlet. WHDH and WNAC. Boston
and WEEU Reading, Pa., sought full
time operation on it with 5.000 watts
power. All three applications were
The third effort involved the 1,180
kilocycle channel upon which KOB,
Albuquerque, N. Mex., and KEX. Port
land, Oreg., share lime. WINS, in

The association has ready a resolu
tion for presentation to the House Dis

tion on the bill widening the District
government’s authority over revoca
tion of driving permits issued in Juris
dictions outside the Capital.
The legislation, which has the ap
proval of the Senate, would add speed

Board of Revocations mieht suspend
the pennits. The offenses are limited
now to drunken driving, reckless driv
ing. leaving after colliding and to be
involved in an accident in which a
judgment of $100 or more is allowed.
Zioncheck, now on a Florida honey
moon, where his bride is doing the
driving as a result of his own three
tangles with the traffic laws, was found
guilty of speeding here two weeks ago,
and the board was powerless to take
from him his Washington State per
