love the word "impossible". What to man seems impossible, is to
God a mere wink of His loving eye. The latest in a long
series of Divine interventions will soon make it possible for KSJL, Strasburg, CO, to become a 50,000 FM station, reaching into the Denver metro area.
permission to build a new radio station and getting it on the air
can take an eternity. Non-commercial educational KSJL first
filed it's application for a license in 1999. RADIO 74
INTERNATIONALE acquired the construction permit in 2010. The
station was built and licensed in 2012 but under conditions which were
unsustainable. Here's the story.
In mid-summer 2011, just
weeks before KSJL planned to file an application with the FCC for a
site change and power increase, a NYC businessman, a speculator, bought
an FM channel at aution in southern Colorado (97.7 FM, the same channel
as ours). From so far away, both stations could have operated on
the same channel without mutual interference. But then the man
requested FCC permission to move it to reach the Pueblo, CO,
market. This was too close and would block our planned move to a
buffalo ranch on a high hill from where our station could increase
power and cover a much wider area. With the FCC, in such cases,
it's "first come, first served." We were distraught at the
potential loss, and began praying for God to intervene.
all appearances, we had no chance of winning, but we felt strongly
impressed to file a "petition to deny" the application of the
encroaching radio project. We asked counsel of experienced
broadcaster friends who saw no way to change things. Just the
same, we hired a communications attorney who at first thought we would
lose. But we remained confident that God would do the impossible.
Within a few months, God revealed to our lawyer a small but
significant flaw in the offending application. It was a flagrant
violation of a recently published FCC rule which made their move
illegal. Yet their application had been so brilliantly presented
that, if not challenged, the FCC would not have suspected the error.
story short, after more than two and a half years of legal wrangling,
the FCC recently announced their decision. The arguments of RADIO
74 INTERNATIONALE were accepted and the opposing application was
denied. The other station would not be allowed to move into our
territory. This left KSJL free to ask FCC permission to
move to the buffalo ranch with full assurance of approval. All glory to God!
is mighty, and not to be toyed with. He who determines the
boundries of the seas and appoints the foundations of the earth also
sets limits on those who would hinder God's work.
planning has begun to move KSJL to it's new transmitting site. A
lease will soon be signed. Local permits are being requested
for the 400 foot tall tower. A half mile power line will
bring electricity to a much stronger transmitter. A precision
antenna to be built by the best manufacturer in the nation will assure
maximum coverage in a radius of some 75 miles.
goes to plan, this new $350,000 voice for Jesus will cover much of the Denver
metro area of some 2.8 million people, as well as a vast rural area
eastwards to the Kansas state line. May the Lord use this new
station to win many, many souls for His kingdom!

74 Engineering Services assisted 36 candidates in November, 2013,
prepare and file their FCC applications for new Low Power FM stations.
23 of these applications, scattered across the US, have already
received their FCC construction permits. And we're hopeful that
up to 10 more will yet be granted.
In recent months RADIO 74
INTERNATIONALE has received FCC permits to build 12 more FM translator
stations, to extend coverage of existing stations.
