The problem is that the FCC seems define "local service" as
`irradiating the community with at least X mV/m of electric field at
least Y hours per day'.  The Commission these days does not seem to be
up to enforcing even that (as witness any number of silent stations
who haven't lost their licenses because they haven't told the
Commission that they were off the air).
