The following AM stations have recently changed callsigns:

Olivehurst, California  890 KVMX from KMJE
Methuen, Massachusetts 1570 WCCM from WMVX
Salem, New Hampshire   1110 WMVX from WCCM

AM station going away (probably)

Copper Hill, Tennessee: 1400KHz:
WLYY license cancelled

This one doesn't appear to have anything to do with unpaid fees. In some places the city is spelled "Copperhill" without a space.

AM station going away (maybe)

KYLW license cancelled for failure to pay fees

Friday, April 28, 2017

AM station going away (maybe)

Carthage, Illinois: 990KHz:
WCAZ license "unrenewed"

Due to unpaid FCC fees. I'm not convinced this is permanent -- I suspect if the fees are paid the license will be renewed.

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.
