Mobile, Alabama: WNTM 710:
Requests STA to operate non-directionally at night with 25% power due to antenna control system failure.  Might use higher power if possible without exceeding authorized field strength in any direction. 

Sweetwater, Florida: WXBN 880:
Calls changed from WZAB.

Douglas, Georgia: WDMG 860:
Requests reduction of daytime power from 5,000 watts to 1,000; of nighttime power from 5,000 watts to 28; and to go non-directional at night.  Station has been operating at 400 watts fulltime under STA.
Changes granted.

Blackfoot, Idaho: KEII 690:
OFF Feb. 25th, transmitter failure.

Cicero, Illinois: WRLL 1450:
Requests permission to operate fulltime, taking over the hours of timeshare partner WCEV.  WCEV has been off since Jan. 20th, 2020 - which means under the law, its license expired on Jan. 20th, 2021.  WCEV's hours were 1pm-10pm weekdays; 1pm-8:30pm Saturdays; and 5am-10pm Sundays.  WRLL operates the remaining hours.
Strangely, while the two stations shared both a frequency and a tower, they appear to use separate transmitters.  WRLL's engineering exhibit includes two photos of space inside a building where it appears a transmitter was removed.  (a feedline is dangling from the ceiling; a power cord and audio cable lie on the floor)  Adjacent to the abandoned space is what appears to be the WRLL transmitter - a rather old unit of appropriate size for 1kw, with a sheet taped to the front that appears to show WRLL's authorized hours.
Most timesharing groups I'm aware of either shared the same transmitter, or broadcast from different sites.
