View Full Version : WLAV-FM Grand Rapids MI tower move

Hello All,

I'm noticing this evening that running an FM Fool analysis now notes that the transmitter database was last updated on October 15, 2020. Great!

However, it did not seem to include the relocation of WLAV-FM 96.9 serving Grand Rapids, MI.

New location is on the WGVU-TV tower, west of Grand Rapids:

NAD83 Coordinates: 42 57' 34.7" N / 85 53' 44.9" W

Given the distance noted in my analysis, the FM Fool database is apparently utilizing their prior location:

NAD83 Coordinates: 43 2' 1.1" N / 85 31' 15.0" W

WLAV's information per FCCdata.org (whose format I like for easy reference):


Thanks! ~~ Statmanmi
