I have a question: I'm working on an app for someone. A channel is available but it's listed as a receive frequency (co-channel) for a translator that is still just an application. This translaotor is just 8 km from our proposed site, but is not in the "key hole" direction this translator would be receiving in.
Now this translator lists a primary station that I seriously doubt could be received over the air. (The primary is like 130 miles away) but nonetheless it's the listed primary.
So my question is would it be best to not use this frequency to avoid any issues? I mean our LPFM would drown out any signal that primary is putting into this community.
Also I thought Rfree tells you when you have an issue like this? Rfree shows no such issue. I had to find it with a modified version of Google Earth. What is the exact rule on translator protection and does one create an exhibit showing no interference to translator reception?
