call sign question

Since the rules have been relaxed, not only can formerly-tied stations each
keep their original call letters, but the owners of a particular set of
calls can use them in more than one location (e.g. an AM station in one
city, an FM or TV in another).  I can't think of specific examples off the
top of my head, but I know they exist.  Personally, I should think it would
be confusing.   -Doug
