Some FCC news today…

The FCC has granted what’s called a “license to cover” a construction permit for KUGB, channel 28. This essentially means the station has told the FCC that it has finished the modifications listed in the construction permit, and the FCC accepts that as final.

KUGB is the weakest station that comes in at my Westchase-area residence.

Now that the digital facility is official, the station’s call sign has changed to KUGB-CD. (CD stands for “class A digital”.)

Also granted was a license to cover to NBC affiliate KMAY-LP in Bryan, which mostly repeats KCEN from Waco-Temple.

The FCC also released a list of applications for construction permits for low-power stations that have been accepted for filing. None of these are in Houston, but there are one in College Station, two in Beaumont, and one in Port Arthur.
