AMs on FM Translators

While the FCC is considering a petition for rulemaking filed last summer by the NAB to allow AM stations to be carried on FM translators, the FCC has gone ahead and granted two AM stations special temporary authority to proceed now with rebroadcasting their stations on FM translators. The stations are WRHI(AM) and WGNS(AM), and the FCC letters granting the STAs can be read by clicking on the station call letters. Whether these STA grants will unleash a torrent of similar requests for waivers to the FCC is unknown but is a possibility.
