    Calvary Radio Network probably stopped the sale of their translator once they saw what Polnet Communication was going to do with it. Seems like they let Polnet pay for the engineering study on a possible move and then decided to keep the translator and will make that move themselves.

    If I was Univision, I'd do everything I could to keep that from going on the air.

    Yep....that would certainly interfere with Univisions 103.1 signal coming out of Arl Hts. Should be interesting to see what develops.

    And, don't forget WCSJ-FM 103.1 out of Morris-Coal City-Braidwood.

    Lots and lots of "translator issues" now....

    :(
