KUVM-LD finally finds its new home

Mako’s low-power KUVM-LD, PSIP channel 10 but broadcasting over channel 40, has been the nomad of the Houston airwaves, seeking to escape adjacent-channel interference from KUBE. First, the station applied for channel 14. That application was eventually dismissed because the FCC felt Mako didn’t adequately state its case that it was being interfered with.

Not to be deterred, Mako then applied for channel 18. However, that frequency is adjacent to land-mobile uses, and therefore would not be able to be granted.

The station’s latest application has now been granted. This will move KUVM-LD from channel 40 to channel 22. No need to rescan just yet, though, as the construction permit has just been issued.
