KUVM-LD trying yet again for a new channel

Poor Mako Communications. It’s having trouble finding a new home for KUVM-LD (channel 10), currently broadcasting on channel 40. In November 2010, it applied for displacement to channel 14, claiming it was being interfered with by KUBE. In April 2011, the FCC put the onus on KUVM-LD to prove that it was actually being interfered with, or risk having the application dismissed.

They tried again last month, applying for channel 18. That application has not been disposed of yet, but Mako must not be confident that it will get that new channel, because they have now filed to move to channel 22. That’s adjacent to low-power KVQT on channel 21, and full-power KLTJ on channel 23.
