Keep WTOP in Baltimore

 Attention WTOP Listeners:

It has come to our attention that a new FM “translator” radio station has been proposed in downtown Baltimore on 103.3 FM.  This has the potential to end reception of WTOP in a portion of the city (view map below).  If you want to continue to get news, traffic and weather from the top news source in the Washington-Baltimore region, we need your help.

If you live, work or drive in the impacted area of Baltimore and listen to WTOP – let the Federal Communications Commission know that you want to keep WTOP in Baltimore by filling out the form below. Your name and address will be used on a public document on file at the F.C.C. but not shared with anyone else.

The impacted area of Baltimore can be seen within the black contour on the map below. Click the + and – magnifiers to view map details.

Thank you for your continued support. (Fill out form below map.)

Fill out the form below:

  • I am a regular listener to WTOP-FM on 103.5 FM which broadcasts in the Washington, DC/Baltimore area.

    Soon a new radio station will begin broadcasting on 103.3 FM. I am concerned that this station, proposed by Family Stations, Inc., will interfere with my regular over-the-air listening to WTOP-FM.

    I regularly listen to WTOP-FM at my home, as I drive in my car in downtown Baltimore, and at the following other locations which I fear will be subject to future interference:

  • I am providing this declaration to ask the Federal Communications Commission to take action to stop this interference from occurring.

    Other than being a regular listener to WTOP-FM, I have no employment, business or other relationship with WTOP-FM or the owner of the station.

    I declare under penalty of perjury that the information in this form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. I understand that this complaint may be made publicly available.
