To me, the frequency that KUAA broadcasts on (99.9) is an impossible mess in Salt Lake County. With K260DS fighting their signal in the southern part of the county and K260DC in the northern part of the county, is there ANY part of the county where the KUAA signal (all 100 watts of it) comes in clearly and cleanly?
Since I'm located in NE Ogden, the only thing I can hear on 99.9 is KSVN's translator. IMO, the FCC hasn't done a very good job of spacing FM translators far enough away from each other, which is probably why some people refer to them as "junkalators". They have a tendency to junk up the FM band in much the same way that AM stations interfere with one another at night.
David, you may not like it, but the FCC is well within the rules for the spacing of K260DC (KSVN) and KUAA. Their protected contours don't even come close to each other. K260DC's doesn't even make it to Roy and KUAA's doesn't even make it to North Salt Lake. You could easily put another translator or LPFM in Davis County. Now, whether those rules should change is a different matter. For LPFM the intent was specifically to create a very localized service to serve a very small specific area. That's why they are limited to 100 watts. It isn't supposed to be a widespread signal and it doesn't serve a lot of people by design. KUAA's service area is Salt Lake itself and no more so it isn't surprising that beyond that it can't be heard well. The transmitter itself is located at 100 S and 680 W in the Utah Arts Alliance building.
