FM broadcast[edit]

In February 2016 a construction permit was granted by the FCC to move translator K230BB out of Fowler, Colorado into the Albuquerque market on 96.9 MHz rebroadcasting KDAZ on the FM band at 70 watts from atop Sandia crest.[1] The translator was licensed on October 13, 2016 as K245CD however it had not begun broadcasting until early 2017. In December 2016 Pan American Broadcasting purchased the translator from Mountain Community Translators for $30,000.[2] The power was upgraded from 70 watts to 160 watts in early March 2017.
