WNAC 1200

The article was headlined that WNAC was requesting a modification of the
clear channel rules of the time, and states that the FCC had designated 1200
kHz as a frequency to which a full-time Class I station would be assigned,
and that any Class II stations assigned to that frequency had to be daytime
or limited-time only. WNAC requested that the "daytime or limited-time only"
restriction be lifted.

I would assume that the reason 1200 would be better than 1260 is because of
the option for higher power if the waiver were to be granted.

Sounds like quite a find.  But why was the petition "of course" turned down?
