Me thinks "Brumaire" (mist/fog) better describes the FCC.

The FCC came up with wildly wrong PSRA/PSSA times last fall(??), then 
relented and told stations to go back to their old power / schedule. 
Could the authorization that Dan found be left over from that debacle?

The FCC's technical competence has been spotty at best in the 50 years I 
have followed them.
