FCC items

Santa Clara, California: KVVN 1430:

Requests STA to operate non-directionally at 25% power.  (250/1,250 ND)  Homeless people are breaking into the directional antenna tuning units and tapping the AC power.  This is creating an electrical shock hazard and possibly more importantly, a fire hazard.  KVVN wishes to turn off the AC power in these enclosures, but doing so makes it impossible to switch directional patterns.

STA granted 9/29/2020.

Chattahoochee, Florida: WTCL 1580:

OFF August 5th, studio building severely damaged by Hurricane Sally.

Fort Walton Beach, Florida: WFTW 1260:

Middleborough Center, Massachusetts: WVBF 1530:

Requests STA to operate half power daytime (2,500/4 DA-1) pending transmitter repairs from lightning damage.

STA granted Oct. 1st.

Seattle, Washington: KKOL 1300:
