Last week's FCC AM items

Surprisingly, no AM stations changed call letters last week.

Fountain, Colorado: KCEG 780 & KJME 890:
Request STA to activate authorized new site, adjacent to a golf course in southeast Colorado Springs, with a temporary non-directional antenna pending completion of the permanent system. 500/37 ND on 780; 1,000/11 ND on 890; both at 38-49-08N/104-46-32W.

Jacksonville, Florida: WQOP 1460:
Granted STA for reduced daytime power of 5,000 watts pending transmitter repairs.

Orleans, Massachusetts: WFPB 1170:
Granted STA 25 watts non-directional daytime, from a temporary whip antenna at a residence. Lost licensed site.

Springfield, Massachusetts: WHLL 1450:
Correct coordinates to 42-06-33N/72-36-40W.

Lexington, Missouri: KLEX 1570:
OFF Sept. 8th, lightning damage to transmitter & antenna.

Anaconda, Montana: KANA 580:
OFF Oct. 1st. Lease expired, although licensee expects to renew at same site.

King of Prussia, Pennsylvania: WFYL 1180:
Requests STA 300 watts non-directional daytime only, 40-09-27/75-24-13. Lost lease. Temporary whip antenna on roof of firehouse.

Benton, Tennessee: WBIN 1540:
OFF Sept. 19th, lost site. Station to be sold.

Madison, Tennessee: WPLN 1430:
Requests STA 5,000/250 ND. Transmitter & antenna phasor damaged by lightning. (I didn't notice as I always listen to this station via WPLN-FM HD2.....)

Bellaire, Texas: KGOW 1560:
Granted STA 15,000 ND daytime, 29-54-05/95-48-15. To use nighttime antenna system during the day, due to flooding at separate daytime site. Application doesn't say so but I believe nighttime operation is unaffected.

Manassas, Virginia: WKDV 1460:
Requests power reduction to 125/63.3 ND; to remove four towers & go non-directional. Application says 1480KHz but that's a typo, information elsewhere in the application confirms WKDV is remaining on 1460.

Pacific, Washington: KZIZ 1560:
Requests site change to 47-18-00/122-11-17 & power reduction to 3,000/430 DA-N.
