FCC AM items last week

South Daytona, Florida: WPUL 1590:

The FCC has ruled there is insufficient evidence to show WPUL had been off over a year.

A competing applicant for an FM translator alleged the AM station had been off the air long enough that its license had expired as a matter of law. If that was the case, WPUL no longer existed to serve as the primary station for a translator -- and the translator permit could potentially go to the competitor.

The Commission ruled there was insufficient evidence to back up the competitor's claims.

    USA Expanded Band Scorecard

    In 1997, the FCC released an AM Expanded Band Allotment Plan. This plan provided for 88 stations in the 1610-1700KHz band. Stations in the Plan were given 90 days to file an application for a new station on their assigned expanded-band frequency, and five years to operate on both frequencies before surrendering either their regular-band frequency, or their expanded-band frequency.

    The five-year simulcast period was never enforced...

    Here's a list of the expanded-band allotments, and their disposition.

    Station #89 was added in 2015. WRCR-1300 convinced the FCC a fulltime station was required in Rockland County because of the presence of a nuclear power plant. Their regular-band station was deleted when their X-band facility on 1700 signed on. The FCC Public Notice can be accessed here.



    A few months later, as part of the “AM Improvement” project, the FCC proposed to require those stations which are still operating in both bands to surrender one of their two licenses. In the absence of an election, the Commission will delete the regular-band facility.
