Goodlettsville, Tennessee: 830KHz:
WQZQ requests move from 1550KHz in Clarksville, Tennessee.
2,000 watts daytime only, non-directional.

Goodlettsville is a Nashville suburb.

This station ran a ground conductivity test on this frequency last summer, reportedly using one of the towers of WPLN-1430. The coordinates for 830 are very similar to, but not quite identical to, those of WPLN. I suspect WQZQ plans to use one of WPLNs towers.

Humble-South Houston, Texas: 1180KHz:
KGOL granted permission to increase night power to 5,000 watts.
