New (temporary) AM stations

Muscogee, Oklahoma: 540KHz, 830KHz, 1680KHz:
Permit granted for new experimental station WI2XNG.

5kw transmitter output on all three frequencies from 35-40-15/95-10-14. Experimental station for "UAS-RFTR training". I guess if you're in the Navy you might know what that means. (UAS typically refers to drones but I can't imagine what a 5kw AM station would have to do with drone training.)

This station has also been granted experimental permission for 10kw ERP FM stations on 92.5, 96.7, and 107.3.
