In April 2017, Threshold Communications partners Jim Bryan and Ron Wulff emerged as the lone bidders in a Commission auction for a brand-new FM radio station serving a small town in Columbia County, Ore., 50 miles to the northwest of Portland.
However, Threshold believed moving the facility at 92.9 MHz, with 2,650 watts from 1,000 feet, to a city in Washington due north of Longview was in its best interests. The Media Bureau agreed, but an interloper didn’t. It was so against the move that it filed a Second Petition for Reconsideration in the hopes that the FCC would change its mind.
It did not.
