If I recall properly, this is directional day & night with different patterns. It's the old CFCF facility -- CFCF changed calls to CINW & moved to 940 before permanently leaving the air.
The new station will be English news/talk.
Birach Broadcasting, holders of a permit to build a new AM station at Terre Haute, Indiana, have requested permission to modify their permit to specify a facility that would serve Chicago. This involves a move of 206km (128 miles) to the north.
The Terre Haute facility would have run 250 watts day & night, with a directional antenna at night.
The proposal is to change the city of license to Peotone, Illinois. The transmitter would be located at 41-18-42N/87-50-08W. This is just west of Peotone, and between Kankakee and Joliet.
Power would be 4,800 watts daytime, 1,150 watts at night. A directional antenna would be used at all hours, with different patterns day & night.
This frequency became available when the previous licensee of a station on 640 at Terre Haute had their license revoked. The licensee had been convicted of serious felonies in a state court.
