Media Bureau Provides Guidance For Continued Presunrise And Postsunset Operation During November 2007 By AM Stations In Areas With Daylight Saving Time

In order to permit AM stations currently operating with Presunrise Service Authorizations (“PSRAs”) and Postsunset Service Authorizations (“PSSAs”) to continue to do so in communities with Daylight Saving Time (“DST”) for the period November 1, 2007, through November 3, 2007 (DST ends at 2:00 AM on November 4, 2007), licensees should use the October DST “Advanced” powers and time periods shown on their current PSRAs and PSSAs for their presunrise and postsunset operations. This adjustment is necessitated by the enactment of the US Energy Policy Act of 2005 which extended the effective period for DST into November for the first time.
