  AM RADIO: FCC SUSPENDS RECALCULATED PSRAs AND PSSAs
  The FCC has suspended its March 1, 2007 Public
Notice requiring the use of recalculated Presunrise Service
Authorizations ("PSRAs") and Postsunset Service Authorizations
("PSSAs") for AM radio stations.  An FCC computer problem
produced erroneous power levels on certain of these
recalculated authorizations.
  Affected AM stations should refer to the following FCC
Public Notice for further information and instructions:

          LETTER TO THE EDITOR (OF IMMEDIATE IMPORTANCE)
******************************************************************
  TO ALL EAS FACILITIES
  Daylight Saving Time begins earlier than usual this year.
Spring forward occurs this coming weekend [at 2AM on Sunday].
The following link has information about how to update the
automatic clock function in various flavors of Windows.
  Don't forget to update the clock on your EAS receiver/
encoder.  If your EAS equipment is out of sync by one hour,
received activations and tests will be "out of the window" and
your EAS box will not respond to activation requests.
