Yes, that's what they told the FCC, and yes, it's true that it's a
somewhat plausible excuse. It's not what they believed inside the
station at the time, though, and I have that from the people who
actually filed the application.
(As Garrett points out, the station has never given its legal ID in
Spanish, either as KKHJ or KHJ, and it never uses the calls outside
legal ID time.)
