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.


Mechanicville, New York: WSSV 1160:
Calls changed from WAIX.
