FM xlator questions
Does an AM transmitter actually have to be on the air in order to legally run an FM translator?
The reason I ask...
Local xlator W277CH 103.3 is supposed to be running parallel to WRIK 750 AM. I haven't heard WRIK on air in a loooong time. Is this legal?
Other local AMer-xlators...
W258AN 99.5 runs parallel to WPAD 1560. Often just a carrier or very weak audio from 1560.
W273CH 102.5 runs parallel to WDXR 1450. Often just a carrier or very weak audio from 1450.
Are these non-modulated / under-modulated AMers legal?
