Last week the FCC approved an increase in the power level a station 
can use for it's HD sidebands.  I haven't heard all the details, so 
I'm not sure if this applies to FM stations only or to both AM and FM?

I know in many if not most cases the stations will have to purchase 
new equipment to implement the higher HD power levels, so I guess it 
may be a while before these increases actually happen.  Does anyone 
know of any station that has the equipment and is planning to 
increase their HD power soon, or perhaps already has done so?
