AM station gone

Thermopolis, Wyoming: 1240KHz:
KTHE license surrendered for cancellation.

Technical changes to Canadian stations

Oakville, Ontario: 1320KHz:
CJMR proposes to reduce daytime power from 20,000 watts to 10,000 and switch from DA-2 (directional, different patterns day & night) to DA-1. (directional, same pattern 24 hours)

The change would allow CJMR to remove 64 relays from the antenna system! These relays are necessary to switch between daytime and nighttime antenna pattern.

CJYE-1250 shares the CJMR towers, and proposes to make the same change.
