BACK ON THE MARKET:  Oregon Coast FM in vibrant community.  Station is coasting along with smooth jazz format and needs a new owner/operator who will relocate the office/studio and take it to the market.  This a perfect start up situation for a first time buyer or a mom 'n' pop that know the ropes and are not afraid to get into the community and call it your own.  The asking price is $135,000 and the Seller will consider terms to a qualified (financially and operationally) Buyer.  

LOS ANGELES MARKET LPTV-D:  This is a VHF facility recently constructed at Mt. Wilson.  There are four sub-channels, three of which are revenue-share networks and the fourth is a translator for another station in the market that needs the coverage boost to reach Orange County.  The asking is $1.5 Million and there might be some room for Seller financing given the right circumstances.  Population covered is in excess of 14.8 million people.  The signal is 3,000 watts-directional and there may be a critical path to take the station to 3,000 watts, non-directional.  Call for details and a presentation.

CENTRAL TEXAS FM CONSTRUCTION PERMIT.  This Class A FM Construction Permit is located in central Texas.  The CP was acquired at Auction so qualification for the new entrant bidding discount is a requirement.  The CP is being sold "as-is" for $17,000 net to Seller meaning Buyer pays for the filing fees and/or any engineering studies.  The CP is set to expire late December, 2015 but it should not be too difficult a build inasmuch as the proposed transmission site is a tower facility owned by American Tower.  Seller believes there may be a path to a subsequent upgrade to Class C3, but that should be contemplated after the current construction is complete when time is not so pressing.  An email presentation is available.  Contact MCH Enterprises.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FM WITH TWO TRANSLATORS: FM is on the air and waiting to be upgraded from Class A to Class B1.  Construction Permit has been granted and tower space is available.  Will put Longley Rice signal into a portion of the Los Angeles Arbitron.  The asking price is $410,000 and that includes two translators in small tourist areas.  Terms may be available to qualified buyers.  

ARIZONA COMBO WITH GREAT NTR:  THIS IS HOW RADIO IS DONE!  AM/FM Combo in small market with big impact and big revenue.  Sales are up 7% and NOI was up 240% for year 2013 vs 2012.  Sales for 2014 are up over the previous year and the first quarter of 2015 is $50K over 2014 first quarter.  Asking $850,000 which calculates to less than 6 X adjusted b.c.f.  Perfect situation for owner/operator or cluster GM. Office/studio available to purchase as a separate transaction.  Contact MCH Enterprises for complete financial analysis.

Northern California Coast FM With Translator:  This Class A has been turned around and the Licensee would like to sell.  The asking price is $295,000.  This is one of the most beautiful parts of the California Coast.  Presentation available.  Sales are stable and cashflow is positive.  Needs a strong sales oriented owner/operator.  Seller would stay on as on-air talent.  LMA/Option may be possible, depending on terms and conditions.  It looks as if 2015 will see sales in the $250,000 to $300,000 range.

LOOKING FOR AN LMA?  WESTERN ROCKIES RATED MARKETS:  This standalone FM is all dressed up and ready to go!  Class C1, 100kw ERP station was recently being operated in a joint venture and now the licensee wants to do a simple, long-term LMA.  The primary market is rated #243 and the secondary market is rated #93.  Combined Longley-Rice coverage easily exceeds 300,000 at the greater than 60dBu contour.  Monthly expenses are $6,500 and LMA payments are negotiable.  Adequate office/space and very nice transmission facilities. The station is currently sileng and waiting for someone to step in.  Executive Summary is available via email. 

PACIFIC NORTHWEST FM WITH FM1, FM2, and FM3 BOOSTERS:  All-in asking is $1,600,000.  All cash preferred.  Rated market, this station combo has been returned to operation after an LMA/Option failed.  The FM1 booster will be licensed as an auxiliary so you never have to worry about losing rated market coverage if something should happen to the main.  A new FM2 has been constructed with a request for license submitted, and there is now an application pending for a new FM3 as well.  Virtually no "crash zone" due to new antennae design. In excess of 500,000 covered within the 60dbu contour.  Excellent market coverage, good transmission site lease and office/studio lease terms.  This one is ready to go.

CALIFORNIA CENTRAL COAST AM:  New AM Station in rated market has completed construction and the 302AM has been accepted for filing.  Program Test Authority granted and the Station is on the air with original Spanish programming.  This is a rated market with excellent revenue potential.  Seller will sell fully constructed and on-the-air (less studio) to include diplexer and digital facilities for $475,000, all cash.

SOLD & CLOSED.  Oregon Coast FM with FM1 Booster:  Due to a death in the family, this Class C3 facility is now available.  Terms will be considered subject to buyer qualifications.  Station has an excellent reputation in the market, loyal staff, but now needs a new owner who can bring sales and service back to previous levels.  Asking price is $210,000 w/Seller financing. The Station and Booster serve three unique and distinct communities that are outstanding.  Good office/studio facilities in the heart of the downtown action and plenty of room to expand it you'd like.  This is a perfect opportunity for a mom 'n' pop and/or first station.  Call for more details:  805.769.8511

SOLD and Closed!  Three Pacific Northwest Translators.  Offered as a group for the cumulative asking price of Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000).  The translators are co-located and the primary signal carried will be the HD2, HD3, and HD4 channels of a nearby FM station.  Because these translators are fill-ins, their power is 250 watts.  There is an HD Channel LMA and a tower site lease in place and construction is underway.  The sale will include all HD importer/exporter equipment, combiner, transmitter and antennae.  There is also an automation system.  This is just about everything needed for a three-station cluster in this rated (#200) market. 

SOLD & CLOSED  CALIFORNIA COAST LPTV-D.  Rated market, transmission facilities just completed construction with new or like-new equipment and license granted.  No office or studio.  Asking price designed to sell quickly:  $135,000.  Custom STL system operates in the 5GHz band.  New 2-channel encoder/mux makes adding a second HD channel an easy thing to do:  operate one HD channel and lease the second HD or SD channel out.  Here's an idea! Use the Station or one of the sub-channels to run your radio-style format:  AM, FM, LPFM, or even Internet Station.  Call us for details and a presentation.
