FCC: 1300 KKOL requests STA extension

This was a late addendum to Friday’s FCC release:  Inspirational Media requests an extension for it’s ‘silent’ STA to continue due to “delayed relocation”.  My interpretation of that reply suggests to me that the owners have had no luck obtaining a location to install the transmitter & towers.  Will 1300 KKOL ever return to the air?  If so, it’s possible they may not get the power output they seek nor is there any guarantee the resulting antenna coverage pattern will reach all of the Sea-Tac metro.
