SUSPENSION OF USE OF RECENTLY RECALCULATEDPRESUNRISE AND POSTSUNSET SERVICE AUTHORIZATIONS AND DIRECTIONS FORCONTINUED PRESUNRISE AND POSTSUNSET OPERATION DURING MARCH 2007 BY AMSTATIONS IN AREAS WITH DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME.

On March 1, 2007, the Media Bureau (the “Bureau”) released a Public Notice, necessitated by the enactment of the US Energy Policy Act of 2005, which increased the effective period for Daylight Saving Time (“DST”), commencing the period earlier and terminating it later than before. The Bureau announced that, with these changes in local time, it was revising its AM station Presunrise Service Authorizations (“PSRAs”) and Postsunset Service Authorizations (“PSSAs”). As a result of an unanticipated computer problem that produced erroneous power levels on certain of these recalculated authorizations, the Bureau hereby SUSPENDS use of its recalculated PSRAs and PSSAs until the Bureau corrects the computer errors and calculates the correct power levels.
