 The FCC came to the rescue of the daytimers and moved the starting time of
 PSRAs to 6:00 AM local time. Even daytimers that were not entitled to PSRAs
 got them during that period and were allowed to sign on (though not at full
 daytime power) one hour before the artificially-late sunrise.

Didn't this really come under fire when we had the errr...."energy

When we set the clocks back one *more* hour....in some sort of effort to save
energy?  Most of the daytimers were really left in the (ahem) dark....

I think that's when the FCC started giving out PSRA's.....

Many of the daytimers screamed cuz with the PSA power....a lot of them
couldn't be heard across the street...
