REC has filed comments in RM-11786, the Petition for Rulemaking from Aztec Capital Partners, licensee of Class C AM station WHAT, Philadelphia, PA and permittee of fill-in FM translator W260CZ.  The W260CZ application has been facing objection from WVLT, Vineland, NJ which claims they have listeners in the Philadelphia area.  WVLT is a Class A FM station located 35 miles from Philadelphia.
