  KATY-FM, 101.3 MHz, Idyllwild, is reportedly receiving
destructive interference inside its 60 dBu contour caused by
the upper HD Radio (IBOC) sideband transmitted by KRTH, 101.1 MHz,
Los Angeles.  KRTH is a CBS-owned grandfathered super powered
station, and that super powered operation undoubtedly exacerbates
the interference.
  Willie D. Davis, President of All Pro Broadcasting, Inc.,
(owner of KATY) writes as follows:  "All Pro has previously and
unsuccessfully tried to get CBS to address the matter.  In light
of CBS's inaction, All Pro concluded that it had no choice but
to seek redress at the FCC."
  This story is local in nature and will undoubtedly be of
keen local interest.  We hope to publish a link to the formal
KATY complaint in the near future.  The following URL leads to
the All Pro press release.
