Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

WPON Update - 2018

Post by SixPlusOne » Sun Feb 05, 2017 2:32 pm

A letter drafted in October of 2016 has an interesting third paragraph:

http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/prod/c ... r_id=68295

"BBC's request is granted. Accordingly, Special Temporary Authority is granted to permit Station WPON(AM) to remain silent not to exceed 180 days from the date of this letter. Notwithstanding the grant of this Special Temporary Authority, the broadcast license for Station WPON(AM) will automatically expire as a matter of law if broadcast operations do not resume by 12:01 a.m., September 14, 2017."

Are we taking wagers? Either Sima tries to file an extension of the STA, or he lets the license expire. This is never going to be built.

One way or another, he'll have to turn it on by then or the Commission will put their foot down. I understand they have been more strict about these remain silent STAs and just firing up a temporary rig into a wire for a few days doesn't count as resuming service.

My guess is that Sima will turn the license in to Uncle Charlie

If i had a choice of WPON or WCXI from that site, i'd take WCXI. Much more coverage.

New Entry Dated - October 10, 2018

https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.ex ... _num=22045

THIS AMENDMENT IS BEING FILED IN RESPONSE TO A DEFICIENCY LETTER FROM THE FCC. THE REVITALIZATION OF THE AM RADIO SERVICE RULES CHANGE OF JANUARY 19,2016 REDUCED THE RMS LEVEL OF AN AUTHORIZATION AND REMOVED THE NIGHTTIME COMMUNITY COVERAGE REQUIREMENT FOR EXISTING AM STATIONS. THIS AMENDMENT THEREFORE INCREASES THE NIGHTTIME POWER AND CHANGES THE STATION CLASS TO B.
