Arkansas station sued for misleading advertiser

A Little Rock radio station has been sued for failing to inform an advertiser of reduced coverage due to a transmitter failure. According to this article on the ArkansasBusiness.com website, KARN failed to inform Custom Satellite Solutions that their transmitter was operating at 2,500 watts, instead of the normally licensed 50,000-watt facility.

(while the article cites KARN-AM 920, that station is only licensed for 5,000 watts. A local DXer says it was KARN-FM, which is licensed for 50,000 watts, that was affected.)
