Recent FCC AM changes

The FCC has begun reporting AM changes in the Licensing and Management System (LMS) along with FM & TV changes. This makes them easier for me to find... and hopefully more timely in this blog.

Requests move to 40-30-57/99-23-48 with 320 watts non-directional, daytime only.

This will replace the recently granted 25-watt Special Temporary Authority.
